* TruthInTelevision for civil litigation.

[[SarcasmMode Hypothetically, anyway.]]

* Mentioned on ''Series/TheWestWing'' when a congressman asks Josh to help him secure more money for a government lawsuit against tobacco companies. When Josh protests that the case has already consumed $30 million in federal money, the congressman lets him know that just ''one'' of the five tobacco companies involved has 342 lawyers on the case.
