He had it coming!


Tonight, I will be Lisa Richardson, escort service owner from New York City, who is accused of shooting her former business partner, Judge Paul Tu, in a premeditated ambush. Of course, I did it in self defense. At least, that's what I'm going to try to convince the jurors in my nephew's mock trial at law school. I would do anything for my nephew but I'll admit to being very nervous about tonight's performance.  He said his grade doesn't depend on it but added, "Of course, it's always nice to win." I will be cramming with the depositions all afternoon. In the meantime, what does a supposedly innocent madame wear to court?

I don't know, Colleen, but thanks a million. I hope they let me write it from prison.

...and we won!! I was acquitted! It was such fun and interesting and great to see young lawyers-in-training learning the process. I don't know if you can be on a list to volunteer for mock trials, but I recommend it to everyone.

Update: My nephew reports that no team in the history of his law school has ever received the 'not guilty' verdict in this case. It's a school record!
