Quotes Edit

Sally Knight: What do you care? I represent the defendant.
Paul Robinette: And I represent the people. All of them.

"In law school, I took 'Civil Rights'. Kevin took 'Tax Planning for the Wealthy'."
"Justice is swift, not fair."
Paul Robinette

Robinette: The defendant savagely murdered an elderly woman, your honor.
Judge Franks: Wait, wait, wait. It says here Mrs. Spiegelman was 61.
Robinette: That's correct, your honor.
Judge Franks: At my 61st birthday, you were cramming for a torts exam. I'd advise you to choose your adjectives a little more courteously, counselor.
Robinette: The People request bail of 500,000.
Knight: My client can hardly afford cab fare to Brooklyn, your honor. Why not make it a million?
Judge Franks: Why not? [laughs] And they say the elderly lose their sense of humor. [laughs again] Bail is set at 250, cash or bond.
