Disorder in the court

Post by Hellsangel on Wed Feb 14, 2018 11:44 pm

_These are from a book called *'Disorder in the American Courts'* and are things people *actually said* in Court, word for word, taken down and now published by Court reporters that had the torment of staying calm while these exchanges were actually taking place._

*ATTORNEY*: This myasthenia gravis, does it affect your memory at all?

*WITNESS* : Yes.

*ATTORNEY*: And in what ways does it affect your memory?

*WITNESS* : I forget.

*ATTORNEY*: You forget? Can you give us an example of something you forgot?

*ATTORNEY*: Now doctor, isn't it true that when a person dies in his sleep, he doesn't know about it until the next morning?

*WITNESS* : Did you actually pass the law exam?

*ATTORNEY* : The youngest son, the twenty-year-old, how old is he?

*WITNESS* : He's twenty, much like your IQ.

*ATTORNEY* : Were you present when your picture was taken?

*WITNESS* : Are you serious. 

*ATTORNEY*: She had three children, right?

*WITNESS* : Yes.

*ATTORNEY* : How many were boys?

*WITNESS* : None.

*ATTORNEY* : Were there any girls?

*WITNESS* : Your Honour, I think I need a different attorney. Can I get a new attorney?

*ATTORNEY* : How was your first marriage terminated?

*WITNESS* : By death.

*ATTORNEY* : And by whose death was it terminated?

*WITNESS* : Take a guess.

*ATTORNEY* : Can you describe the individual?

*WITNESS* : He was about medium height and had a beard.

*ATTORNEY* : Was this a male or a female?

*WITNESS* : Unless the Circus was in town,  I'm going with male.

*ATTORNEY* : Doctor, how many of your autopsies have you performed on dead people?

*WITNESS :* All of them. The live ones put up too much of a fight.

*ATTORNEY*: Do you recall the time that you examined the body?

*WITNESS* : The autopsy started around 8:30 p.m.

*ATTORNEY* : And Mr. Denton was dead at the time?

*WITNESS* : If not, he was by the time I finished.

_And the best for the last.._

*ATTORNEY*: Doctor, before you performed the autopsy, did you check for a pulse?


*ATTORNEY* : Did you check for blood pressure?


*ATTORNEY* : Did you check for breathing?


*ATTORNEY* : So, then it is possible that the patient was alive when you began the autopsy?


*ATTORNEY* : How can you be so sure, Doctor?

*WITNESS* : Because his brain was sitting on my desk in a jar.

*ATTORNEY* : But could the patient have still been alive? 

*WITNESS*: Yes, it is possible that he could have been alive and practicing law.

Smile Nice. There is also some interesting statements when someone is interrogated/interviewed in depositions. I have read some interesting depositions transcripts. Good attorney/interrogator will make it so hard for the person being questioned esp if they were involved in any related wrong doing.. And more fun when the attorney for the person  being questioned will intervene and say what can be asked and not...
