    I had belongings stolen from my property and all the MV Police could say was: “There nothing we can do about it, you’ll have to take them to court”. But yet when something is stolen from a business, they are quick to investigate, apprehend and charge the suspects. They serve no one but themselves and business owners….sad but true.

    The “winners” in a protracted trial, proceeded by discovery, are the judge, clerk’s employees, court reporter, defense counsel.nnA Federal trial is not quite as quick as Judge Judy, et al. nnIn my opinion, the plaintiffs and the defendants were winners.nnCivil litigation is far better and wiser that other protocols, although there exist examples of misconduct that can tempt one to use a solution outside the courtroom.
