Where does the good go


Can nerdy corporate lawyers be called “peeps”? Anyway, the following exchange took place at one of my depositions:

Lawyer 1: Do you know what this message means?
Opposing Lawyer: Wait, does the witness know what it means now or did she know what it meant when she got it?
Lawyer 1: Fair point. Ok, let me ask it in a compound way: Do you know, sitting here today what it means and did you know then what it meant?
Opposing Lawyer: Objection. Compound Question.
Whole room bursts into laughter.

    is this what passes for humor at New LLP?

    by the way, did you tape angel?

  2. Dawn Summers Says:

    ummm… I tivo’d it, but I can’t remember if I already deleted it or not…

  3. Alceste Says:

    okay – got in trouble (with dawn 2? do i have to use pseudonyms for the power of 3 in the blogosphere) for failure to tape it…

  4. Dawn Summers Says:

    hahahahahaha…yes, you do have to use such pseudonyms… dawn 3 also comments here from time to time! Will let you know if I have it and bring it to Old LLP tomorrow morning if I do (it sucked though…)

  5. Dawn 2 Says:

    Ah. I see.

    I’m sorry, my fingers were injured by the multitude of paper cuts inflicted by the never-ending document review that i squeeze in between motions. In fact, i am typing with my toes right now.

    I hope you can bring it to old llp tomorrow. Because that would be faboo.

    PS I’ve never commented on a blog before. I’m such a newby.

  6. Alceste Says:

    were I not so tired right now, I would have a very entertaining “newbie” joke to make – as it is, I will simply revert to chuckling in response to the compound question objection…

  7. Dawn 2 Says:

    Hey, this is kind of fun!

    I think I will give up document review in favor of blogging all day.

  8. Rick Blaine Says:

    Do it, Dawn 2. I haven’t looked back.

  9. Dawn 3 Says:

    Hey, I got a mention! I’m reluctant to reveal my secret commentator identity, though.

    Very funny depo. Does it mean that I’m a huge geek because I think so?

  10. Dawn Summers Says:

    No, I thought it was very funny too. It’s just that Dick Cheney apologist, Alceste that was underwhelmed by the humor. I think Old LLP has made him dead inside.

  11. Alceste Says:

    It’s a sad day when you’re labeled a cheney apologist… And yes, Old LLP has made me dead inside…
