Lawyers on the Mayflower
Actually, there weren't any lawyers on the Mayflower, to our knowledge. But that fact, alone, gives us reason to be thankful. Rick Georges at Futurelawyer counts his blessings and comes up with 10 reasons to be thankful no lawyers were on the Mayflower. We'll give you his bottom two, but you'll have to read his post for the rest:
10. Conducting a trial on a small wooden ship would be difficult.
9. The Seamen's Union would go on strike, and refuse to offload passengers and freight until their lawyers conducted settlement negotiations.
