Sharks in the court!

And no, it’s not a ‘professional courtesy’ joke.

Wednesday marked the third annual “Crazy for Shark Week” celebration at Anne Arundel County Circuit Court. Held in Judge Alison Asti’s chambers, the lunch-time event features — you guessed it — sushi and a giant sub.

Tied to the Discovery Channel programming of the same name, which is also this week, the lunch is designed “to thank all the people who work so hard to make our courthouse run efficiently, which makes my job and the other judges’ and masters’ jobs easier,” Asti said in an email sent along with these photos. Rumor has it that the celebration has spawned (har) another in Baltimore County Circuit Court.
