April 2001 - Did They Really Say That?
From Jeffrey C. Lewis of
Texarkana, this exchange that took place during his cross-examination
of the female plaintiff in a medical malpractice trial in Bowie County.Mr.
Lewis: I'm not asking you for a medical opinion, but as far as you're
concerned (the defendant doctor's) surgery, his technique, what he did
with your right foot, fixed all the problems you were complaining about?Plaintiff's Attorney: Objection. That calls for a medical opinion.Mr. Lewis: I'm not asking for that.The Court: She's the best one to know. I would think.Plaintiff's Attorney: I don't think she was in there when he was operating on her.Jeffrey adds: "Judge Bill Peek (202nd District Court) wisely overruled the objection."
