You taught me a few things
Even though I was not pleased with the outcome, I did enjoy trying the above-captioned case against you this morning and afternoon. You taught me a few things about impeachment and also about the importance of using transcripts of pretrial motions as part of my preparation of witnesses. Despite that observation I am not too sure 200 hours of preparation would have helped my particular witness keep his facts straight. The man was able to setup the predicate, but also the man was unable to maintain it. Good job.
