"It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of fight in the dog."
So the question from my blog "Deal with the Devil" is what happened?
The short version-it's not over.
The longer but still hopefully short version-it was going swimmingly well in my opinion. The accuser contradicted himself on the stand continually. Their only other witness on his side turned out to benefit us. And his attorney was a disorganized mess who was more interested in making loud rude comments "under her breathe" and asking multiple inane and irrelevant questions to take up huge amounts of time because, well, the accuser is paying $250 an hour so why not. You would think the highest priced law firm in the county would provide better.
And there I was with Rebecca, my wonderful and reasonably priced attorney, a huge support system and confidence of the truth on my side. Unfortunately time was not on our side. The judge has yet to hear Dan's testimony and his feeling is that will end the case. So we have to go back....in mid-December!! Merry Freaking Christmas.
And the end all-being dragged into Domestics the same day because he didn't like how the courts crunched the numbers when removing our 18 year old from child support. First of all MY attorney found a problem in his taxes (he combined his and his wife's income) that saved HIM money. Second of all (I just got the documents) he has to pay about a quarter more than the first estimation. Well, bully for me on his cheapness-that bit him in the ass.
As much as I was hoping to have this monkey off of my back it's not. I have to wait five months for resolution. I am confident it will be fine as the insanity of it all was actual pure comedy at times in the court room. The judge was even getting exacerbated.
So it's not the size of the dog in the fight but the size of the fight in the dog. My attorney and I might both be fighting much bigger dogs, and the fight was brought to us, we didn't pick it, but we have courage, truth, amazing talent on her part, and the ability to defeat the big bullies.
