"It’s in the judge’s hands now," said the lawyer. =


"Would it help if I sent the judge a box of cigars?" =


"Oh no! This judge is a stickler for ethical behavior. A stunt =
like that would prejudice him against you. He might even hold you in =
contempt of court. In fact, you shouldn’t even smile at the judge." =

defendant. As the defendant left the courthouse, he said to his lawyer, =
"Thanks for the tip about the cigars. It worked!" =


"I’m sure we would have lost the case if you’d sent them." =


"But, I did send them."


"What? You did?" said the lawyer, =


"Yes. That’s how we won the case.  Of course, I sent the =
