LETTER: Attorney General Barr ‘just another shark in dirty water’

To Ozaukee Press:

Watching recent televised testimony of U.S. Attorney General William Barr in a Senate hearing, I was reminded of John Grisham’s legal novel “The Rainmaker.” The principal character, a lawyer, evaluates his success in a recent case:

“There’s no doubt about it, I’m hot. In fact, there’s no place for me to go but down. Every client I ever have will expect the same magic. And I could probably give it to them if it didn’t matter how I did it….Every lawyer, at least once in every case, feels himself crossing a line he really doesn’t mean to cross. It just happens. And if you cross it enough times, it disappears forever. And then you’re nothing but another lawyer joke. Just another shark in the dirty water.”
