We’ve made it to the last Monday in June, which means it’s time for the final article and challenges! We took four questions about characterization suggested by the lit community and asked the experts for answers. They gave us amazing advice, and we’re excited to share it with you now! :eager:

but the case was dismissed
when the Defense never showed up.)
