It wasn't so much a great line, as a great moment. I was second chairing a theft by deception jury trial with a colleague of mine. We were prosecuting a guy for selling a stolen air compressor at a pawn shop. The defense attorneys put their guy on the stand. He claims that he has all sorts of disabilities, that he couldn't have been the guy who stole the air compressor because he's not allowed to lift heavy things or to drive a car (note: this is relevant because he claims that his 'friend' authorized him to pawn the air compressor, and that he didn't know it was stolen, which would have negated the criminal intent element of the theft by deception charge. We had okay but not solid eyewitness evidence that our defendant was the same dude who stole the air compressor off of the construction site and loaded it into his car. We put witnesses up who claimed he was the guy who stole it from the site, but there was enough uncertainty that we proceeded on the theft by deception charge, which requires us to prove that he pawned the compressor when he knew or should have known that it was stolen. In this case, his signature and prints were on the pawn ticket, the pawn clerk identified him as the guy who made the exchange, and he had no proof he had ever purchased the compressor, but did have this wild story that his 'friend' who he hangs out and drinks with had him pawn it on his behalf.) So my colleague is cross examining the guy, and he makes this statement about being physically unable to drive, and having not driven, period, in over a decade. So I remember from the guy's rap sheet, he has a DUI, from like three years earlier. I hand it to my colleague and he starts on a line of questioning: "So you can't drive? Are absolutely physically unable to drive? Haven't driven in years? At all? Well except for that time you got a DUI three years earlier, right?" The guy, without missing a beat, says "well that was the only time in the last ten years!" The defense attorneys were beyond pissed. You can't bring normally bring in prior bad criminal acts -- especially unrelated ones like getting a DUI -- but you can impeach the fuck out of someone with a prior crime if they open the door like that. It was really perfect.
I have a special place in my heart for Yellowstone and the Beartooths. I feel my most relaxed not necessarily at Coachella, but when I start passing those windmills and enter the desert. I love both New York and Boston, and feel deprived that I haven't lived in a major East Coast city during my life. I've been moved to tears at several different places in DC, and look forward to the day that I can take my kid there and tell him about America's story.
I've seen three games at the old Yankee Stadium (including two playoff games), and two games at Notre Dame Stadium. I haven't been back to NYC since the new park opened, but I am anxious to go. The first time that I went into each place was completely overwhelming. They were experiences that transcended sport and in some ways went to the core of my family life and identity as a person.
have you ever lied in court, have you ever lied out of court, have you ever lied to courtney?
You are defending someone that is guilty of a mid level crime. They jury, as expected says he is guilty. Are you happy that the person is doing time or upset that you lost the case? What if it was a major crime? Petty Crime?
For the bigger cases with true sociopaths, I imagine that many defense attorneys are relieved if the state does its job and convicts their client, but they will still take seriously their charge to fully advance their client's legal interest, and are never going to be happy to "lose" even if a genuinely bad guy is being put away. Another thing to consider is that in many of those cases, the job of the defense attorney becomes not so much to achieve an unlikely acquittal as it is to save their client's life, or their possibility for parole later in life.

Willing to share pix?
Good thing Bob has a camera phone and access to you when you sleep.
Mitch, as twins we should certainly have a secret twin language. Please outline the key phrases of our language.
What has this board taught you about introducing significant others to people you chat with on the Internet? Would you repeat this on another forum?
Do you read other forums?
Get your facts straight sir.
You said pix or it didn't happen. It happened.
She's not my girlfriend, she's a crazy chick I like to have dirty sex with once in a while.
Mitch, would you like to see said pictures?
Would that offer pass off as proper etiquette ?

Coming up with the phrases that could form an actual new language is insanely difficult.
I have posted over the years on a movie forum, but nothing to the extent I have posted here.
