From Eric Turkewitz at the New York Personal Injury Law Blog: "How Not to Ask a Question"--
Digging through an old file on a settled case, I came across some notes that I made during a deposition I was defending. It was a simple hit in the rear auto case and I jotted down some of the questions the defense lawyer asked.
Each question, it seemed, was more wretched than the next. None were spoken in plain English.
Read the full post for some (humorous, at least to me) examples. As Turkewitz observes, "It isn’t really hard to abuse the English language. All you need to do is go to law school."
