05/21/19 Grif.Net – Box of Cigars

The defendant in a lawsuit involving large sums of money was talking =
to his lawyer. "If I lose this case, I’ll be ruined." =

 

"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." =

 

A few days later the judge rendered his decision in favor of the =
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, =
incredulously.

 

"Yes. That’s how we won the case.  Of course, I sent the =
cigars to the judge but enclosed the plaintiff’s business =
card."
