/forums/images/icons/laugh.gif this really happened in south carolina recently...

a high school basketball team used inelgible players in 6 games, absolutely no one disagrees that these illicit players participated in these games, and the high school association did the obvious: forfeit of those games...another team awarded a playoff spot.

but whoa, the coach and high school principal felt it was "unfair"..(lol).. that the rest of the team should be punished for the coaches mistakes (remember , no one disputes the inelgibilty of these players); and filed suit...a judge issued an injunction against the forfeits, and re-instituted the team to playoffs....

now the game was almost started,,,the teams were in pre-game warm-ups when the forfeit team shows up with injunction, kicks the substitute team off the floor, and plays the game.....

the supreme ct of s.c. heard the case next day and overruled the injunction,,, and rebooted the team which used illegal players out of tourney...

do you see the message our legal system sends: the rules do not apply; just hire the right lawyer who can use the right legal tricks and you'll get what ya want...no need to be fair..lol...these lawyers are maggots on society and their cancerous effects on society are far-reaching...gl all /forums/images/icons/confused.gif

its the old squeaky wheel gets the grease. cry loud enough and you can find someone to make you whole again. our legal system has always favored those with them most money to push the issue. we keep it as its the best we can do and every once in a while the little guy wins and reinforces the good about it.

now what this thing about going to a doctor and then asking for a second opinion, and he brings in one of his associates to give it to you.

It seems to me that there is a bigger problem with the clients and the judge who handed down the ruling than the lawyers in this case. If I wave enough money under a lawyers nose why he shouldn't I be able to find someone to represent me in court?
