Had a good time in Federal Magistrate’s Court. The new JAG Officer told me he wanted to learn from me so he wanted to try the case. Fine with me. He had his questions scripted as a new lawyer does, but that causes any lawyer a problem when the witness does not answer the question that was posed. The police officer in this case had his own script about how he wanted to present his testimony. The 2 scripts collided at some points and some of the scripted answers were inadmissible. The officer seemed aggravated at our having a trial and seemed like he did not know it was his lawyer who did not suggest discussing a plea. He was more aggravated when he could not say exactly what he wanted to say.
