Chris Messerly didn't think he'd done anything heroic. Well, yes. He had won his case. It was a big case, too, one that went all the way to the Minnesota Supreme Court. But winning was what he'd been hired to do. As a partner in the Minneapolis office of the law firm Robins, Kaplan, Miller & Ciresi, winning cases was just one part of his job description. It didn't mean he was a hero.
