Harry's lawsuit wasn't about the money. Unless, of course, the defendants wanted to offer him a lot of it. In his seven-part, 6,960-word series, Harry Shearer takes the reader on a guided tour of the polite hell that is our judicial system: He learns that justice can be bought (or rented, if you're on a budget), that contract law confuses even the experts, and that a judge who is obsessed with a 2-by-4 can't be trusted.
