Frivolous legalism

I just finished reading John Grisham's latest novel The Litigators. I am a big fan of his earlier novels but do think he is not really producing the quality he once did. This novel is an interesting story with amusing characters. As usual Grisham paints the legal profession and Corporate America in a very poor light. It is no wonder the US economy is in such a mess. So many resources (particularly highly gifted motivated and hard working people) are being wasted on frivolous legal activities rather than actually producing useful products and services.

I am currently reading through Exodus so here are a few relevant verses:

  “You shall not pervert the justice due to your poor in his lawsuit.  Keep far from a false charge, and do not kill the innocent and righteous, for I will not acquit the wicked.  And you shall take no bribe, for a bribe blinds the clear-sighted and subverts the cause of those who are in the right.

Exodus 23
