An observation

If you hear your lawyer saying either of these two phrases, you’d do well to fire him on the spot. And also recognize that you’re headed for defeat.

  • Your Honor, we still feel that we have a very strong case….
  • It could be argued….
In both cases, you’re dealing with a lawyer who already knows he is beaten, but isn’t prepared to tell the client yet for fear that the checks will stop arriving. No one is more doughty in defeat than a lawyer.

Of course, there is a third phrase that is even worse.

  • We can absolutely appeal this!

I won’t comment on the 72 Bears lawsuit, except to say that I feel good, and I’m not scared at all. I just feel kind of… kind of invincible. Is it getting hot in here, or is it just me?
