Practicing law is a delightful way to make a living for a person who hates to ask questions, in the way that being a working musician is a great profession for a codependent. Some days, as a medical malpractice defense attorney, it seems as if asking questions is all I do. There is written discovery. There are requests for admissions. Depositions follow. We have voir dire examination, wherein we ask complete strangers about such things as their spiritual beliefs, reading preferences, marital history and food allergies. As I prepared for a forthcoming trial, I ruminated about what I would really like to ask the jury. My post-verdict questions would look like this.
