Legal Humor

The below dialogue is from a book entitled "Disorder in the American Courts". These are actual, verbatim exchanges that occurred between attorney and witness.

ATTORNEY: What gear were you in at the moment of the impact?
WITNESS: Gucci sweats and Reeboks.

ATTORNEY: This myasthenia gravis, does it affect your memory at all?
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: Do you know if your daughter has ever been involved in voodoo?
WITNESS: We both do.
WITNESS: Yes, voodoo.

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.

Oh how I would have loved to have been present for these exchanges!! LOL
Your not suppose to talk or make noise in a courtroom. I can just see the people trying hard not to bust a gut by not laughing. Way funny!!!! I will post more later, so be on the lookout!!
