Re: Where Do I Find These Lawyers

OK, I'll bite...

Don't blame the lawyers - it's this guy and his ego that are the problem.

The thing is, he seems to genuinely believe he is right - and, if instead this was some plucky underdog taking on Outlook, we'd be probably cheering him (and by extension his lawyers) on.

Everyone should be entitled to legal representation to argue for what they believe is right, whether they are accusing or defending. Unfortunately, 'everyone' encompasses a lot of assholes. But that's not the lawyer's fault.

That said, there is something about the total lack of self reflection within the American psyche that makes some of this US lawyer's comments cringe-worthy...
