Trump’s Lawsuits: The Greatest Hits

There is one famous phrase about lawsuits: the attorneys are the only true winners. That's because almost all the court fights are long and costly for everyone involved's finances, reputations and mental well-being. Within this sense, many people find litigation to be dramatic and emotional affairs, as demonstrated by famous films on the subject such as Philadelphia and Erin Brockovich.

The truth, however, is that litigation is rarely as exciting as depicted in the films; for all but a handful of people, the vast majority of lawsuits are dull, unhappy and inconsequential. Given the overwhelming stigma arising from litigation, they have only become a growingly widespread occurrence in America.

This can be seen in the country's steady growth of labor lawyers since the late 1800's, the increasing wages of legal practitioners, and the growing spending of major corporations in recent years on litigation. Apart from corporate litigation and federal litigation, civil court legal action by individuals has also been on the rise over the past 30 years: from around 460,000 cases in 1990 to over 650,000 in 2018, according to U.S. courts records.
