THIS ONE’S FOR MA PEEPS
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.
