And “Why is a viola like a lawsuit?”
“Everyone is happy when the case is closed.”

19 April 1999, Cincinnati (OH) Post, “Award-winning musician shows viola’s no joke” by Mary Ellyn hutton, pg. 3B
But Kim Kashkashian is not just any violist. Twice Grammy- nominated, she is arguably the best violist performing today. And if you’ve ever wondered about the justice of those jibes - “How is a viola like a lawsuit? Everyone’s happy when the case is closed” - come hear her play at 8 p.m. Tuesday at the Cincinnati Art Museum.

23 January 2000, Seattle (WA) Times, “UW violist Callus isn’t just fiddling around” by Melinda Bargreen, pg. M4:
Q: Why is a viola like a lawsuit? A: Everyone is happy when the case is closed.
