Marines 1, Car-Vandalizing Lawyers 0

That's a nice headline right there. I can't really do much further justice to the story. A Chicago lawyer decided to vent his anti-war frustrations on a local Marine's car and expected the Marine to be deployed before any legal action can occur. No one ever said you had to be smart to get an advanced degree, and the lawyer in question proved it. Considering the judge who heard the case served in the Marines himself, I think the lawyer got a light slap on the wrist for the criminal damages charge. I think the civil trial for restoring the damaged vehicle is going to be anything but civil, though.
