The word "retired" often conjures images of golf games, hammocks and grandchildren. For "retired" Prince Georges County Circuit Court Judge Steven Platt nothing could be less accurate.
While he has the requisite grandchidren and leisure activities he is also returning to the bench when needed and is running a multperson mediation group called fittingly The Platt Group. He mediates across the state of Maryland in conjunction with other retired members of the bench.
Predictably, the conversation on Everyday Law was non-linear as host, Bob Clark steered his way through Judge Platt's lengthy career with stops on the Orphans Court, the Maryland District Court, The Prince Georges County Circuit Court with assignments at The Court of Special Appeals as well.
While there are many reasons to listen to this particular show, don't neglect Judge Platt's tales from the Orphans Court including the Chief with four wives! https://everydaylaw.podbean.com/e/judge-platt/
