Well yeah, duh. He's already having to pay the filing fees for the court. You expect him to also pay money for a real big shot professional attorney to defend him, especially when he can play pretend big shot attorney and defend himself for free?! Even if might mean he could possibly win a lawsuit for once. He's not made of frickin money, you dingus! Besides, if Russ can intimidate whoever he's going after into giving Russ what he wants by spreading a bunch of bullshit about lawyers agreeing with Russ that he has a viable, winnable case or that he's filing lawsuits that he really isn't going to file, then he doesn't have to spend any money.He has frequently consulted totally real not made up lawyers who all agree he has an awesome case but he still ends up representing himself in the end because he can do as much as those lawyers can and not because he made them up.
