=v= Lawyers are rewarded not for seeking justice, but for being
aggressive and bullying, as that is thought to scare people into
settling. There's nothing to prevent them from continuing on
with a case, though, because taxpayers are footing the bill.
They dragged on the RNC 2004 cases in NYC for well over a year,
even after evidence and testimony was proven to be false.
=v= Incidentally, RNC 2008 is in Minneapolis this year.
