When One Governmental Body Sues Another Govermental Body, The Only Winners Are The Lawyers

The title of this post will probably be longer than the body of this post, but so be it. 

I am, by the way, referring to the pending lawyer orgy that will result from Luzerne County suing Lackawanna County.  Story link HERE.  More details to come, but seriously, do we really need them?  It all boils down to this:
  • Luzerne County will have lawyers...paid by taxpayers...sue Lackawanna County.
  • Lackawanna County will have lawyers...paid by taxpayers...defend against the suit by Luzerne County.

By my reckoning the only winners here are the lawyers, which is probably the underlying point of it all.

Amazing...simply amazing.  This would be funny if it were not for the fact that it's our money they are playing with in the first place.

Tell you what:  Give me $200 + a pair of tickets to see Gordon Lightfoot at the Kirby and I'll mediate a resolution between the two groups of county commissioners.
