I tried to watch the latest episode of The Law Firm (now on Bravo), but my tivo cut out about halfway through for some reason. (I think maybe the power went out.) So, what happened?
This was the one where the African-American woman was complaining about damage done by the Latino kids or teens in her neighborhood, but then she pointed to dents or dings that were pretty much invisible. And, truthfully, she came off as a little crazy.
Then, they went into court and decided to spring a harassment/stalking/civil rights kind of claim on the defendants and abandon the original property damage claim. Then, they put the plaintiff on the stand... and she was just terrible. She was asked three times what the defendants did to threaten her and she responded, "Well, their dog pooed on my lawn," and other irrelevant things before she finally came out with, "And they said they would 'off' me."
Now, really, if someone said they'd "off" you, wouldn't that be the first thing you'd mention? Before you mention the "poo" on your lawn?
This is the kind of case, I suspect, that if the plaintiff really walked into your lawfirm looking to sue, you'd at some point tell her, "We're not really taking this case to trial. Either we can look for a little settlement if that will make you feel better, or you'll just have to let it go." But, we can't all pick our clients. Well, I know I can't.
It was looking like a loser of a case. But I would think that the producers would have realized that... So, what happened? Is anyone recapping this show anymore? I know Ditzy Genius was, but now she can't because she doesn't get Bravo. Anyone else? I'll even offer up a deal - you recap this last episode, I'll get the next one. Any takers?
