If anyone either (a) needs a sleep aid; and/or (b) wants to know how lawyers can make even the most run-of-the-mill disputes seem like battles between evil and righteousness, check out Bill Shaikin’s latest report about the machinations between the Dodgers and Fox over the team’s post-2012 TV rights.
Not that the report itself is boring. It’s a great overview. It’s the underlying substance. Just sort of encapsulates how a relatively simple matter gets so complicated so quickly when people start suing one another.
Sorry. Feeling a bit existential today. It was two years ago today that I quit the legal racket and stuff like that reminds me of why it was such a good decision for me. Litigation is not meant for those with short attention spans. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to work on another post.
