So the vision that has been painted by SP in his fact-free dalliance into fantasy land - with Elizabeth Warren approaching the witness stand and haranguing a victim of breast implant malpractice to convince the court to deny their claim - is entirely improbable in a bankruptcy proceeding.

What I quoted in my post:

"Warren offered legal advice to the parent company of a company in or about to go into bankruptcy. That advice almost certainly concerned how to protect the parent company, Dow Chemical, from claims of women against Dow Corning. "

How ModernViking summed it up:
"... it turns out that Warren's involvement came in the early days of Dow Corning's bankruptcy. Bankruptcies, for lawyers, are an exercise in making the rubber-stamp machine run one more time. And Warren's role as a specialist in executing bankruptcy trusts would have put her squarely in the back office of the whole thing. "

Off the scale.
