Lawyer Line Of The Week

And in a non-snarky way, too.

There's nothing necessarily remarkable about this story of a fired flight attendant's award, except that I found her attorney's sound bite particularly brilliant:

Her case shows that "psychological evaluations cannot be used as a surgical tool to cut out employees from a 30-year career, to silence them," Anderson said after the verdict, which followed a two-week trial.
You don't even need to read the article, now, do you? Clever without being corny. Memorable in the right way.

It's a persuassive writing must-do that's pretty hard to pull off: boiling your case down to a sentence.
