Where Justice Snigur Comes From:

           Shortly after Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia died me and a pal of mine launched into a Facebook chat about how President Obama should go about nominating a replacement for him since the Republicans were determined to give him a hard time (They sure did). My friend jokingly suggested that Obama should simply “nominate Snigur”, referring to a mutual friend of ours who lived in DC.  I responded to this joke by saying “yeah, he should, and then I could crash in his chambers and get stoned all the time. Those Supreme Court Justice chambers must be amazing.” A couple months later while laying in bed it clicked to me that a scenario like that could be the basis for a TV sitcom. Thus I set about writing it and here we are.
