This week, during one of her quasi-inspirational online interviews, Meghan Markle relayed a Georgia O’Keeffe quote to Fortune magazine’s virtual audience, telling them that “I have already settled it for myself so flattery and criticism go down the same drain and I am quite free.”

However, some criticism is harder to rinse down the drain than others. When it comes from the High Court, for example, and is immediately followed by a $230,000 legal bill, then not even O’Keeffe could rise above it.
