Disorder In The Court...

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 who had the torment of staying calm while

these exchanges were actually taking place.

ATTORNEY: Are you sexually active?

WITNESS: No, I just lie there.


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: 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: Do you know if your daughter has ever been
involved in voodoo?

WITNESS: We both do.




WITNESS: Yes, voodoo.


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 bar exam?


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

WITNESS: Uh, he's twenty-one.


ATTORNEY: Were you present when your picture was taken?

WITNESS: Are you shitt'in me?


ATTORNEY: So the date of conception (of the baby) was
August 8th?


ATTORNEY: And what were you doing at that time?

WITNESS: Uh.... I was gett'in laid!


ATTORNEY: She had three children, right?


ATTORNEY: How many were boys?


ATTORNEY: Were there any girls?

WITNESS: Are you shitt'in me? 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: Now whose death do you suppose terminated it?


ATTORNEY: Can you describe the individual?

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

ATTORNEY: Was this a male or a female?



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 my autopsies are performed on dead

people. Would you like to rephrase that?


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



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: No, he was sitting on the table wondering why I
was doing an autopsy on him!


ATTORNEY: Are you qualified to give a urine sample?

WITNESS: Huh....are you qualified to ask that question?


--- And the best for 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: I see, but could the patient have still been
alive, nevertheless?

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