Two wrongs can make a right

One of my clients made a very foolish mistake.  I was somewhat upset, although philosophical, because the consequences weren’t as bad as they could have been.  I learned yesterday that the opposing party made an even bigger mistake that completed negated what my client had done.  In twenty years, it has never happened before that something stupid on my side got wiped out by something more stupid on the other side.  What could be better?

    They call it the Fog of the War, Book, in other fields of endeavours.

    Another way to look at it is force vectors. A hard force coming from one direction can be negated by another force coming from the opposite direction, and they meet together.

    But there are so many forces occuring in this universe, that we cannot predict them all, at least not at the same time. So it is a fog.

    And how do YOU pronounce “serendipity”?

    You’re too funny, Y. That’s exactly right about the fog of war, considering that litigation is warfare, somewhat civilized.

    And you’re right, too, Larry!

    Ah, what do you care? Both you and opposing counsel will get paid.

    Bookworm isn’t like your average set of lawyers, she prides herself on excellence, not just mediocrity, JJ.
