  1. I dare you not to chuckle

    .. some of these had me in stitches



    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: What was the first thing your husband said to you that morning?

    WITNESS: He said , 'Where am I , Cathy?'

    ATTORNEY: And why did that upset you?

    WITNESS: My name is Susan!

    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: How many were boys?

    WITNESS: None.

    ATTORNEY: Were there any girls?

    WITNESS: Your Honor , 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: Is your appearance here this morning pursuant to a deposition notice which I sent to your attorney?

    WITNESS: No , this is how I dress when I go to work.

    ______________________________________

    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: ALL your responses MUST be oral , OK? What school did you go to?

    WITNESS: Oral..

    _________________________________________

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

    WITNESS: No.

    ATTORNEY: Did you check for blood pressure?

    WITNESS: No..

    ATTORNEY: Did you check for breathing?

    WITNESS: No.

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

    WITNESS: No.

    ATTORNEY: How can you be so sure , Doctor?

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

    ATTORNEY: I see , but could the patient have still been alive , nevertheless?

  2. As stupid as those questions sound there is at times reason behind them.

    The purpose is to have the witness say something that the attorney wants them to say because you are not allowed to direct a witness or put words in their mouth.

    Also to remove any and all chance of possible ambiguity (Doubtfulness or uncertainty as regards interpretation)

    Yes I agree though some of the questions are very very basic and seem lame to the uninitiated
