    Another example of the scruples that characterize too many among our entrepreneurial but often parasitic plaintiffs' bar. Good for Judge Wright in throwing the book at these shameless fraudsters.

  • Marcelino

    This very well that the judges are earrings if themselves regulate the conduct of lawyers cheats, for the good of society.
    Esta muy bien que los jueces estén pendientes de regular la conducta de abogados tramposos, en bien de la sociedad.
