Yes they do and when it is happening generally the one's that it happening to can't get enough breathing room to do anything about it. I've heard more lame excuses from attorneys over the years than you can shake a stick at. We grew up being fed a line about how good the system is but in fact it is really messed up. Justice should be more than just what you can afford pay for. I mean that in a sense that both judges and attorneys are corrupt or chicken shit or both.
