"The dance begins," a source close to the defense told Reuters. "Like any good criminal lawyers, [Cacheris and Stein] are going in with the premise, 'If we can work something out, let's do it. If not, we'll kick Starr's butt in court.'"
Meanwhile, the man who never came close to kicking Starr's butt -- William Ginsburg -- spent Wednesday insisting to reporters that his rapid departure was "by mutual agreement." However, the once and future medical malpractice attorney admitted he did not know in advance that Lewinsky's family had selected new lawyers. Unlike Starr, Ginsburg did not warrant a courtesy call.
