In the article below, the owner of Century Dancing Club tried to defend his selling alcohol without a license, with the all-familiar argument: “If you don’t break the law, you can’t survive in business.”
If you say that in a US court, you are dead. The court and the jury will slap you with the highest penalty that the law allows. That is a suicidal type of argument in the American court.
What do you say to that? Even if it is true, is it smart to argue that line in court?
Have a nice weekend!
