    This is in an area of law that lawyer love as it is all murky and they get to charge confiscatory rates and look legitimate doing so.

    Perhaps they charge extra to work in the rain.

    From what I've observed, it depends a lot on which beer they're on at the bar! :

    Excellent article - thanks for sharing. I personally hope Sterling takes the NBA to court. I particularly like the part were the author mentions that Sterling, having owned the Clippers for 33 years, probably has had conversations with other owners during which they may have made similar or other racist or derogatory comments and the threat that such would be exposed in court may cause the owners to back down.

    Get out the popcorn, this should be fun!!

    I'm with you brother, unless the NSA is monitoring this conversation. If so, I fully support their admitted indiscriminate need to search for terrorists by collecting millions of innocent people's (non-suspects) electronic communication; just in case with a snowball's chance in Hell, one day they might need it.

    That's a really good read.
