LANSING, Mich. – Jonathan David, an attorney at Foster Swift, has been awarded an honorable mention in the Michigan Bar Journal Short-Story Contest. His story "Easy Peasy" will be acknowledged in the contest recap that will be published in the August 2015 Bar Journal. "Easy Peasy" is about a man who claims while attending church that he accidentally put a $100 bill in the collection plate intending to donate only $5. So he recruits a friend to be his lookout while he breaks into the church office to correct his mistake and take back his $100 in exchange for the $5 he meant to put in. He gets caught and decides to defend himself on the charges.
The Michigan Bar Journal Short-Story Contest received 31 entries this year which were put into five panels where the two highest-scoring stories from each panel would advance to the final round. All 14 finalists' stories will be posted on the Michigan Bar Journal's web page in early August.
