From Ellen:
Hi everyone,
Thanks so much for all your wonderful notes of encouragement. Preparing for this hearing has been extremely difficult for me, as I have been watching videos of and listening to the DJ. Whew. So when it's been particularly tough, I just go over to the GoFundMe site and read your notes.

More importantly: my attorney has changed his mind and said it might not be a bad idea to, as he put it, "pack the house."

So if you're interested in coming to my hearing on Friday, January 26th at 8:30 a.m. at the Vista Courthouse, I'd love to have you come. We'll be in Department 24, wherever that is. I'm planning on getting there early to figure out the location.

My attorney simply asks that you all stay quiet during the hearing. That's going to be the hardest part of all for everyone!
Love to you all,
