When is a loss actually a win?

When a lawyer tells you so.

A local federal court just entered summary judgment against an attorney's clients (here). No problem. According to him, he and his clients actually won.

He said: "As far as we're concerned, it's not even a setback, and everything is on course." (J. Gottlieb, "Judge Rules Against Gay O.C. Couple", Los Angeles Times, June 17, 2005.)

And you thought the Dodgers' front office or politicians had cornered the market on spin.

This guy holds a Ph.D., summa cum laude.
