Telling it like it is
« on: December 06, 2007, 11:45:31 AM »

Why lawyers should never ask a witness a question if they aren't
prepared for the answer.

In a trial, a southern small town prosecuting attorney called his first
witness to the stand - a grand motherly, elderly woman.

He approached her and asked, "Mrs. Jones, do you know me?"

She responded, "why, yes I do know you, Mr. William's . I've known you
since you were a young boy, and frankly, you've been a big disappointment
to me. You lie, you cheat on your wife, you manipulate people and talk
about them behind their backs. You think you're a big shot when you haven't
the brains to realize you never will amount to anything more than a two-bit
paper pusher. Yes, I know you."

The lawyer was stunned. Not knowing what else to do, he pointed across the
 room and asked, "Mrs. Jones, do you know the defense attorney?"

She again replied, "why yes, I do. I've known Mr. Bradley since he was a
youngster, too. He's lazy, bigoted, and he has a drinking problem. He can't
build a normal relationship with anyone and his law practice is one of the
worst in the entire state. Not to mention he cheated on his wife with three
different women. Yes, I know him." The defense attorney almost died!

 At this point, the judge brought the courtroom to silence, called both
counselors to the bench, and in a very quiet voice, said, "if either of you
 asks her if she knows me, you'll be jailed for contempt."
