    Note: Some of them are GREAT weasels that I appreciate very much. :rofl:

    I'm in day-2 of a local case where Dunkin Donuts wants to put up a store in a residential area where I live. The battle is FIERCE.

    What IS interesting is the two atty's are WEASELS! As is the managing partner of the opposing counsel who spoke at many'a Zoning Board of Appeals meetings. That guy would lie even if it meant his mom was gonna die. Wow. The stuff he alleged b/c he knew no one could prove it in that setting was SHOCKING.

    Trial law fascinates me but I don't think I'm cut out for it. Sure, I can lie with the best of them, but this constant shading of truth is amazing.

    What I also find interesting is that the trial will wrap up tomorrow. We'll get a decision, on our about Halloween. WOW! (Honestly, the judge is a pretty cool guy. Very patient, accommodating and friendly. Truly just wants to get to the heart of this and make a good decision. . . but it looks like it's leaning our way. WOOHOO!!!)

    That is all.

    Fight it on the basis that it would prove a health hazard for your neighborhood.

    Calling most attorneys "a weasel" would be complimenting them.

    If the lawyer for Dunkin was smart, he would enter a box of donuts and coffee into evidence every day, and publish to the jury first thing in the morning. Case won. ;^)

    Call them all the names you want and hope they don't remember when you need them. Like when you see a driver doing something you don't like and ask "why is there never a cop around when you want one". Hope it is not that way when you need a lawyer. I keep a lawyers business card in the same wallet pocket with my CCW, I'll show the police one then the other.

    Nah, attorneys don't lie - that's because what they say is "argument", not "evidence". Besides, nine-tenths of the law is not possession, it's how you characterize that possession.

    The thing about legal wranglings is that lawyers see it as a game. I believe that many lawyers don't care about winning or losing unless they are involved in a case where they stand to gain a percentage of the award.

    If you have ever personally been involved in a real legal dispute, you will soon learn that it involves a lot of gamesmanship, a lot of playing coy and parsing words. The attorneys gain when either of them throws a wicked curve at the opposition, regardless of the truthfulness. In other words, in a dispute, the more protracted it becomes, the more enriched both lawyers become. This results in a actions dragging out and attorneys making some outrageous claims because he makes money doing so and makes more money while the opposition responds.

    Enough lawyers play this despicable game to tarnish the image of the entire practice. I have no respect for the industry/profession whatsoever. I do know some attorneys that I respect and believe have morals and character but they are few and dang far between.

    That is a very astute point. I have seen that in action myself.

    I've been a lawyer since 1983. When I was practicing, I dealt with a lot of people charged with criminal offenses. Most either had alcohol or drug problems that was very often the underlying reason for their crimes. Most of the others just got mad at somebody and hit, cut, shot them, etc. Some, of course, were thieves or burglars and would just basically tell you that is just what they did for a living. All in all, I got along fine with most of these folks.

    But then there were my fellow attorneys.................wow, what a bunch of slimy, dishonest, conniving, lying, immoral pieces of crap they were. They would stab you in the back in a heartbeat and would use ANYTHING to gain an advantage in a case. I absolutely hated dealing with some of them. (The only group worse were the realtors, who made most lawyers look like saints.)

    Bottom line is that I don't have to practice law anymore (thank goodness) and do not miss the warfare.
