I respectfully dissent points to difficulties that are coming from the fact that one lawyer grossed more than the chief justice of North Carloina. Of course, as IRD points out, no one bothers to subtract the lawyer's rent, secretary, double taxes, office materials, etc. out of the amount. Somehow I don't think the chief justice has to pay those expenses.
