Review one lawyer's fight vs. Harris County probation officials.
The three were hiking in a single-file line: sister, friend and then the older brother. For two hours, they worried about their kids, fueled by news articles and photos. After making the decision to abort their hike and return to Lukla, they passed village after village of destruction, sleeping outside in tents at night, alert for aftershocks both real and conjured out of memories.

Eric Medina Jr. liked to tell Julian Cruz he was going to take his spot on the varsity basketball team if Cruz didn't work hard enough. Medina, a 16-year-old junior varsity basketball player at Pasadena High School who died suddenly during a P.E. class Friday, was remembered as the "team comedian" who spent much of his time practicing his three-pointer and pushing friends to "never give up." "Memories like that make you never want to give up," Cruz said Sunday evening at a vigil for Medina, who collapsed Friday on the high school track and died later that day. Medina was determined to go to college out of state - he would have been the first in his family to earn a degree - and return to Pasadena to coach basketball, the sport that was his passion. Before the song, Lorena Saecedo said one of the last times she picked Medina, who she called her "little giant," up from school, she watched him goofing off with friends before he got in the car and told her about how he was set on going to a college out of Texas.
