Martha Stewart, OJ, Bernie Madoff all had expensive lawyers.

Expensive lawyers are good when a small fraction of someone's worth where the cost is just a mild nuisance. I think all 3 of these people benefited from their lawyers certainly. Someone middle class, needing the lawyers of the ultra rich and celebrities, they might as well kill themselves or run to Mexico.

OJ's expensive lawyers got him off. His less expensive lawyer got him convicted of robbery.

I firmly believe that the robbery conviction was a "make-up call."

Johnny Cochran and company were successful.

I find this very interesting as well. Seems that place loves to detain people.

The allegations against Resorts by the man in the article, the casino actions were pretty severely, low classed and totally greasy as Bubbles would say. First, try forcing him to pay then having him arrested, then forcing him to pay and refusing to cash his tickets if he didn't. Lately I've been thinking they should have the numbers posted to text like in NFL games if you're being harassed in a casino by a patron or by the casino.

The funny thing is he could have just waited 45 days which is when the money switches from the racino to the NYS lottery.

After 45 days you no longer can cash out at the racino. Instead you have to go to a separate NYS lottery office to get your money.

I had flagged vouchers that they wouldn't cash and I still got my money by going to the NYS lottery office two months later. They have no ability to refuse a properly offered voucher for redeeming after 45 days

I notice the case was filed in the Bronx, which is well known for its jury handing out jackpots.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.
