Nice comeback

spence Legendary defense lawyer Gerry Spence is defending Geoffrey Fieger on campaign finance charges in Detroit. Former Spence student Norm Pattis flew into the Motor City and took in a day of the trial last week. He passes along the following exchange that occurred while Spence was cross-examining a government witness:

Spence:  "Can you tell me a case in the history of the world in which ..."

Prosecutor:  "Objection."

Spence:  "Okay, the United States."

Pattis' collected posts on the Fieger trial are here. Very interesting, to say the least.
