How to win the sympathy verdict from a jury

During jury selection, perhaps it would be wise not to do this:

A lawyer who was stabbed by his client during jury selection in the man’s rape trial will be asked to step down from the case.

Superior Court Judge Charles Grabau said Wednesday he will ask attorney John Courtney to withdraw from the trial of Che Sosa, who allegedly stabbed Courtney with a sharp, makeshift weapon made out of Plexiglas Tuesday.

To me, the most surprising thing is that a lawyer would have to be asked to stop representing some scumbag that just stabbed him. But then, he is a lawyer. (via Fark)
