In the chapter “Don’t Get Mad; Don’t Get Even; Get Ahead” Matthews discusses ways one cannot waste energy trying to get back at an enemy. It states how one should focus efforts on getting simply ahead of the enemy. The chapter cites the dilemma of former Speaker Newt Gingrich who attempted to shut down various government institutions after Bill Clinton forced him to exit Air Force One from the back. All this did was ruin Gingrich 's political spine. Others like Pat Sullivan, who helped Herbie win but did not receive help in return, tried to get even but fail in an eight year struggle.

At first the NRA tried to hijack his case and replace him with their own lawyer, which failed leading the NRA to lobby congress to pass a law which would overturn the D.C. gun laws rendering Gura’s case moot. The NRA knew that if Gura were to lose and the court made the decision that the second amendment didn’t protect individual’s rights to bear arms they would lose legal ground which they had fought so hard over. During February of 2003 Gura was able to finish the complaint he would file with the federal trial court in Washington. It was actually a rather short complaint, consisting of only a few pages with no extraneous issues or “trap doors.” His argument was that “the second amendment guarantees individuals a fundamental right to possess a functional personal firearm,” His choice for the lead plaintiff was a woman by the name of Shelly Parker who had fought drug dealers in her Capitol Hill neighborhood.
In Coleman v. Brown (1990), the court ordered a reduction in California’s prison population to provide California Realignment: Assembly Bill (AB) 109 8 constitutional levels of medical and mental health care, demonstrating the court’s ability to generate a comprehensive remedial solution to prison overcrowding (Harvard Law Review, 2009). “The California governor and corrections officials have been sued by California prisoners for violating their rights under the Eighth Amendment 's Cruel and Unusual Punishment Clause for being deprived of adequate health care” (Spector, 2010, p. 1). The safe operation of a prison is impossible with severe overcrowding (Spector, 2010). In a similar case filed approximately a decade later in Plata v. Brown (2001), the court ruled that the CDCR failed to provide adequate medical services and consequently violated the Eight Amendment (Rogan, 2012). The outcomes of these cases led to a court-ordered reduction in overcrowding, and because of the poor level and standards of prisoner healthcare, the California prison system was forced to change prisoners’ housing.

The Supreme Court stated, in Mathews v. Eldridge, that the right to be heard in a meaningful way “before being condemned to suffer a grievous loss” is a basic principle of our society. See Mathews v. Eldridge, 424 U.S. 319; 333 (1976) (citing Joint Anti-Fascist Comm. v. McGrath, 341 U.S. 123, 168 (1951)). However, they proceeded to counter this by saying that due process was flexible and its procedures should be tailored to the particular situation. See Mathews v. Eldridge, 424 U.S. 319; 333 (1976).
