LawyersWorld.org | FRANCE - Historic French Court House Buildings, Artwork and Justice System - photos and video mini documentary of Rouen Court House 1498 to 2010 by lawyer Richard Morris
Searching for provenance of painting on the left:
The painting on the left is hanging at the Palais de Justice (court house) in Rouen, France. The photo of the painting was taken in September 2010, and in November 2010, Richard Morris the photographer reported in email that "The painting is by: J. Lavaud. No title or date. My sister-in-law got it by returning to the Palais de Justice, and this is written on the painting itself. There was an hearing on a rape trial at the time, and she was unable to ask anyone." [yet another demonstration that his historic 500 year old building still serves as a functioning court house, LawyersWorld.org editor's comment 2010.11.16]

Sept. 22, 2010 Update from Richard Morris
[accompanying photo of Bullet Train above] "I am in Bayonne, France, heading back to Paris today. Coming here 2 days ago we learned 4 hours into the trip of 5 1/2 hours that our train was targeted by Muslim terrorists. But, the French stopped the attack. Photo attached is me working on the TGV (bullet train).
Today, we face the challenge of getting back to Paris in the face of a one-day (today) strike in France. Nice place to visit. Dick"
