The Best Defense

A defendant in a major lawsuit was talking to his lawyer. “If I lose this case, I’ll be ruined!” he fretted.

“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. You shouldn’t even smile at the judge.”

Eventually, the judge found in favor of the defendant. As the man 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,” the lawyer said.

“But, I did send them.”

“What? You did?” said the lawyer, incredulously.

“Sure. I sent the cigars to the judge, but enclosed the plaintiff’s business card.”
