Judge Rules: I Should've Gone to Med SchoolIn the 1980s TV show "L.A. Law," one of its protagonists, an attorney played by Susan Dey, has a hearing in front of a judge in which two well-to-do ranchers are arguing over possession of a large jar of bull semen. The testimony and questioning of witnesses is played absolutely straight for a lengthy scene until the judge stands up and says angrily, "Counsel, I want to see both of you in my chambers immediately!"
Cut to Dey, opposing counsel and the judge entering his office, where they all collapse in hysterical laughter.
I certainly hope US District Court Judge Richard Berman holds a similar conference during his Deflategate hearing today. It's what the case deserves.
