Sadly, you are. There are some lawyers who see to profit from publicity for their cause, rather than winning the case at hand. Sometimes they personally profit more from losing the case, than by winning, because then they can scream about discrimination and courts being stacked against them, all the while holding out a hand for donations.

Fortunatly this is an exception rather than the rule. Most civil court are quietly handled with little press coverage.
