Yeah? How many of you have actually had to stand in

Judges will not listen to whining exusces and weak arguments, and you
don't get to argue over and over again
after they rule -- you have to pay. The real shocker is when the judge

and they rack up 350,000.00 in fees just to send a dozen letters and
file a complaint and you get ordered to pay it.
In the example I mentioned, it may be worth mentioning the Church of
Scientology has had to pay the attorney's fees for the people they
sued many a time.

I suspect in a clear-cut case, you'd be surprised how many friends
Not that I consider it a good idea to push it, of course.
