I was recently interviewed on The Price of Business, a talk radio show that airs on Business Talk 1110 AM KTEK in Houston. The topic was one that I’ve spoken on many times – factors to consider before filing a lawsuit.

Take a listen and I’d be quite interested in hearing your feedback.

Some additional thoughts:

  • First, you can win in court and lose in the court of public opinion. Years ago, Barry Bonds was sued by his ex-wife, who was German. He had a prenup that she was trying to invalidate. Win or lose (he won), he lost in the court of public opinion.
  • Second, what is your opportunity cost? If you are going to spend tons of time on it, maybe you would rather do endorsements or sharpen your golf game.
  • Third is a quote from deceased Senator Everett Dirksen: “We must all rise above principle. “ Some things just are not worth pursuing.
