Some scary Attorney truths!

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.

autopsy on him!

ATTORNEY: Doctor, before you performed the autopsy, did you check for a pulse?
WITNESS: No.
ATTORNEY: Did you check for blood pressure?
WITNESS: No.

ATTORNEY: So, then it is possible that the patient was alive when you
began the autopsy?

nevertheless?
