The Cigars   

A defendant in a lawsuit involving large sums of money was talking to his lawyer. "If I lose this case, Iíll be ruined."

"Itís in the judgeís hands now," said the lawyer. "Would it help if I sent the judge a box of cigars?"

"Oh no! This judge is a stickler or ethical behavior. A stunt like that would prejudice him against you. He might even hold you in contempt of court. In fact, you shouldnít even smile at the judge."

Within the course of time, the judge rendered a decision in favor of the defendant.

As the defendant left the courthouse, he said to his lawyer, "Thanks for the tip about the cigars. It worked!"

"Iím sure we would have lost the case if youíd sent them."

"But I did send them."

"What?? You did???"

"Yes. Thatís how we won the case."

"I donít understand," said the lawyer.

"Itís easy. I sent the cigars to the judge, but enclosed the plaintiffís business card."
