Opposing lawyers both claiming victory? It’ll never happen.

Whoops. It’s a win-win…or is it a lose-lose? From the Los Angeles Times (“Both sides in Cussler-Anschutz case claim victory,” by Kim Christensen and Glenn F. Bunting):
After a marathon battle of big egos and a long-winded 14-week civil trial, author Clive Cussler and billionaire industrialist Philip Anschutz both claimed victory Tuesday, but neither walked away with the huge financial win he’d sought.
So do I side with the tycoon who dreamed of playing movie mogul or the bestselling author who gave bloated sales figures for his bombastic books? Um, I’ll get back to you on that.
What was this really about?
Jurors deliberated for eight days to determine who was responsible for the financial failure of “Sahara,” which starred Matthew McConaughey and Penelope Cruz and has lost about $105 million to date.
I know who I blame: Matthew McConaughey and Penelope Cruz. Can’t someone sue them for something, too?
