Legal proceedings are not cheap and there is almost no guarantee that a judge or jury will see or act on "the truth". Sometimes even when the facts in the case are totally in your favor, a judge or jury will disagree. In one case, after we presented all the evidence and testimony, the judge said that I could more afford the money than the party I was suing. He found for the other party. When my attorney complained, the judge just said "appeal my decision if you want to". It was an open and shut case that I lost. I never appealed.
