"James Boswell, himself a lawyer, once asked his great mentor about the propriety of a lawyer’s 'supporting a cause which you know to be bad.' Dr. Johnson replied: 'Sir, you do not know it to be good or bad till the Judge determines it. . . . An argument which does not convince yourself, may convince the Judge to whom you urge it: and if it does convince him, why, then, Sir, you are wrong, and he is right.'"
