Here is John C. Tucker, a man who twice argued before the Supreme Court and won, challenged the nefarious and discriminatory practice of "contract lending" and lost, participated in such monumental cases as the Chicago Eight trial following the calamitous 1968 Democratic Convention—and retired at age fifty-one, securely established as one of the most respected jurists of his generation.

Tucker looses the case but later on learns something he (and probably you) will not be expecting...something not known before the trial ends.

    Would have made a good magazine article, but repetitious and should come with the disclaimer that it is representative of precisely nothing in the legal profession.
