In my post "Trial-Blogging After the Fact," I wrote about The Uncivil Litigator's presentation of his first jury trial. Today I posted an update to the post which provides links to the rest of UCL's story.
It's well worth reading. Here are a few highlights:
From Chapter 7: At that point, I rested my case and it was the defense's turn. This is when the real fun began and I realized that I was born to be a litigator, because the thrill I got from the following cross-examinations had my adrenaline pumping.
From the Conclusion: When I returned to my law firm, my colleagues' reactions were hilarious in their excitement. You'd think I just won the Scott Peterson trial. Plenty high fives from associates, partners interrupting phone conferences to run into my office, the firm liquor cabinet opening up, the whole bit. The entire experience, from morning to verdict, was an absolute thrill, and let me tell you that, now, there is nothing I look forward to more than going to trial.
Good stuff. Also be sure to check out this interesting war story about UCL, UCL's wife, and the federal government.
