What would Wilson have done with Tom's case against the twins if he had known what judge Driscoll was going to disown tom Chapter 13

Wilson tells Tom that he is ashamed of him for treating his uncle so poorly. Pudd'nhead indicates that had he been aware that Judge Driscoll was sleeping and did not know about the incident, he "would have kept that case out of court," so as to give the Judge "a gentleman's chance." This puzzles Tom; if the case was kept out of court, Wilson would not have gotten his first legal case after all of these years. However, unlike Tom, Wilson puts the Judge's honor above his own self-interest.
