Courtroom Anecdote:

The Miami Herald quotes this anecdote allegedly involving veteran attorney Sy Gaer:

Attorney: I'm here on a mission of mercy for this poor innocent child, your honor.

Judge: How old is this 'poor child'?

Attorney: He's 23 years old, your honor ... a babe in the woods.

Judge: If I recall, once you reach 18, you're not a child anymore.

Attorney: I have suits that are older, your honor.

Judge: You have speeches that are older. I've heard them all Mr. Gaer. Motion denied.

Thanks to How Appealing for the pointer.

Bored Lawyer:

I'm here on a mission of mercy for this poor innocent child, your honor.


Are there attorneys who still talk like that? Hard to believe they were not laughed out of court years ago.

One wonders whether "suits" refers to his wardrobe or to lawsuits.

I wonder if Mr. Gaer was sent by Mitch and Murray
