Super Lawyers

The convention in drafting pleadings and other such legal documents-- around here at least-- is to state amounts of money in words, with the digits in a parenthetical. Thus: One Million ($1,000,000.00) Dollars. I thought of this as I was walking back from court this morning, having prevailed on a motion which had been up on appeal and then remanded. We do more terrific lawyering on Buck Ninety-Eight ($1.98) lawsuits than anyone should have to. I mean, finely wrought, delicately filigreed, hand-embroidered stuff. The big lawsuits take care of themselves, sort of, but the sort of careful craftsmanship that goes on with some of the others makes my head spin.
