Legal Wit — Parallel Universe

Legal Wit — Parallel Universe

Why do written costs submissions frequently try to lead us into some sort of parallel universe where losers are actually winners?
If you lost, don't re-write the facts to argue that you won. It only makes the judge go back — repeatedly — to see if we're talking about the same case.
And if the best you got was a mixed result on one of the issues, don't claim you were right to relentlessly pursue all of the issues. Especially when you ignored repeated opportunities to pursue only the claims which might have had some merit.
