“…I got out by the skin of my teeth with nary a dime….”

"Order in the Court!"

“Order in the Court!”

STAY OUT OF LAWSUITS:  I’ve had my share of lawsuits, and have won them on a 10:1 basis; which is pretty good.  But let me tell you…it’s BETTER to settle out of court.  While you may win, it’s NOT the way to conduct good business.  Avoid court if at all possible; which is why they call it “Court of last resorts.”  The most notable lawsuit I was ever involved in was where I sued for about $75,000 in real cash loss, and about $200,000 in other damages.  I was countersued for $650K.  My case was built on the TRUTH.  The other side was built on ALL LIES ( I know…that’s what they all say).  I got out by the skin of my teeth with nary a dime, not to mention related expenses….and I felt blessed to have escaped.  AGAIN:  Settle on the Courthouse steps.  Matthew 5:25-26: Settle matters quickly with your adversary who is taking you to court. Do it while you are still together on the way, or your adversary may hand you over to the judge, and the judge may hand you over to the officer, and you may be thrown into prison. Truly I tell you, you will not get out until you have paid the last penny.…Blessings…cjlb…12//19/13
