29. "lawsuits are not a search for truth"
Excuse me. Very often lawsuits are in fact precisely a search for truth, and in finding the truth, the "victory," as you phrased it, goes to the proper party.

Furthermore, allegations in a suit, especially a suit as public as this one, leaves all parties open to charges if those allegations prove untrue.

There is never a level playing field. Never. That sure as hell didn't stop David from going up against Goliath. Same situation here, except it's a lot of little people going up against big corporations, who have the most to lose when bush, blackwell, rove, et al., are revealed as fraudsters.
