You're a retard with too many time to bittch and yet not enough to read, puzzles the mind.

When you're before a jury, is your plan to persuade them by insulting the opposing counsel?

It is, isn't it?  :D

(I'm actually not complaining about anything.  I'm just making observations about your posts.  ;) )

If it's on this forum then yeah, plus degradeing the character of the person on the other side is a HUGE part of winning in court. If they like the guy they can "jury nullification" even if he has no case, or in a more common scenario people on the fence swing based on "gut" feelings. It's not lawyers in that box, its people too stupid to get out of jury duty.

Trashing the other side doesn't work so well if the jury's not somewhat inclined to dislike them in the first place.  If you're up against someone who's nice and civil and you're shouting at them about how they're a liar and a moron, that will reflect badly on you, not them.

Also, it's probably best not to exude sheer contempt toward the jury.  ;)

You have the play the angle Albeit, but apparently all the "real" lawschools dont teach facts, so if us poor old cooley folk want to keep up we best learn to sling "philosophy"(aka *&^%) the best we can to keep up since they're so much better in every way don't you know.

Slinging poo is probably not a great way of keeping up.

If the flame war does not stop immediately, this thread will be locked. Personal attacks cross the line.

I realize you guys are joking, but I think the jokes are proof that this thread's time has come and gone. Feel free to start another one if you feel strongly about discussing the issue.
