So in other words they're saying a really remote chance exists to prevail in such a case but if you do the losing party pays all kinds of damages as well as the prevailing plaintiffs legal fees.

Which translates into, just find a lawyer with nothing to do or non existent case load and convince him you've got a case. He takes it on contingency and if he prevails he can charge a kings ransom. If he loses you both walk away with nothing but ruined reputations.

The problem with the Warren case is even if Haidaris prevails the defendants can't pay! A judgment means nothing if the defendant is broke. The books are stuffed with uncollected judgments, I've seen them myself. You'd be shocked at the number of Warren professionals with unpaid judgments on their backs!

I'm surprised that Marty White would take this case, his modus operandi is large payday cases.

Hmmm?

So who the*****is surprised by this? "rare" and "racketeering" are two words seldom connected when it comes to the Mahoning Valley. Corruption is just the normal way of doing business.
