The Law Is A Ass #444: So, Is Daredevil Appealing?

Bob Ingersoll

By day Bob Ingersoll was an attorney in the Cuyahoga County Public Defender Office, Appellate Division in Cleveland, Ohio, until he retired in 2009. But in the “Real World” he has also been a freelance writer since 1975, when he sold his first comic-book story to the late, lamented Charlton Comics. He’s still at it and, in addition to his long-running column “The Law Is a Ass” has sold stories to DC, Marvel, Innovation, Now Comics, Comico, Kitchen Sink and others; as well as co-authoring the novels Captain America: Liberty’s Torch and Star Trek: The Case of the Colonist’s Corpse. Bob is married with children, which is about as close to Al Bundy as he cares to get.

    I’ve noticed a tendency in fiction for lawyers and prosecutors to act like losing a case is embarrassing and extremely bad for their careers. The D.A. in this story is just another example of this. In reality, like you said, going to the Supreme Court is an honor and “losing” there won’t make you look bad unless you do a very bad job.
    I’ve lost count of how many lawyers who’ve “never lost a case” show up on TV shows.
