Anniversary of Justice

Bro calling Mom after the verdict. Today is the anniversary of my brother's win against his former employer, Lockheed Martin (link). It was a long process for sure, and within the confines of a sometimes, dubious system of justice...All the strong-arming, intimidation, and sheer expense nearly broke him, both emotionally and financially. It was painful to watch, and all the more satisfying to hear the verdict read "We the jury find the defendant guilty on all accounts and award Shawn Carpenter 4.7 million in damages". Hell yeah! That's my bro.
