Charges lacking merit, literally - ACCUSATIONS
Charges lacking merit, literally

Once upon a time, there was a young lawyer named Lily who was always on the lookout for her next big case. One day, while reading the newspaper, she came across a crossword puzzle. She loved puzzles and started to go through the clues.

One particular clue caught her attention: “Charges lacking merit, literally.” She thought for a minute, and then it hit her – the answer was “accusations.”

Lily chuckled to herself as she thought of how that clue could apply to so many of her cases. How often had she heard “accusations” from someone, only to find out later that they were totally baseless and without merit?

But just as she was about to move on to the next clue, her phone rang. It was her boss, and he had some news. Lily was going to be representing a client who had been falsely accused of a crime.

Lily couldn’t believe it. It was as if the clue and her case were connected somehow. But she didn’t dwell on it for too long; she quickly got to work on the case. She poured over the evidence, interviewed witnesses, and built a strong defense for her client.

In the end, Lily’s hard work paid off. The charges against her client were dropped, and he was able to move on with his life. As she left the courthouse that day, Lily smiled to herself, thinking of how the puzzle clue had led her to such a meaningful case – one where she was able to protect someone from baseless accusations.
