Snowjob via lawsuit

“You are making a basic assumption that this brief was written in order to actually win its case. In fact, it was more likely written to be included with fundraising letters. This is why it reads like a direct mailer (including weird attention-grabbing fonts, caps, italics, etc.) and why it has legal arguments on the first page (which is as far as most donors will read – they need to be reassured that there’s a real case here, relying on real law). They know they can’t possibly win. The brief is a snowjob to con supporters out of cash.”
