Why Our Drug Laws Have Failed:

Judge Jim Gray - Why Our Drug Laws Have Failed.

What is one thing that Walter Cronkite, Dr. Milton Friedman, Secretary of State George Shultz, New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson, and syndicated columnist Arianna Huffington all have in common? Each one of them has endorsed Judge Gray's book on the failure of the War on Drugs. Problems with increased crime, adult and juvenile violence, medical problems, terrorism all around the world, decreased civil liberties, and the misspending of hundreds of billions of dollars annually are clearly shown in the first part of this book as being traced to this failed policy. But there is a better way, and the second part of the book shows in detail how other policies and programs are actually working in these areas. Click here for: Why Our Drug Laws Have Failed.

Professional Tools For Litigators: Opening Statement

Daily Journal, 4/7/2011:

Many attorneys, judges and legal commentators believe that, second only to issue of the credibility of witnesses, the opening statement is the most important aspect of the trial when it comes to convincing a jury. I share that belief. Skilled and artful attorneys will use an opening statement to tell the jury about what they anticipate the evidence at the trial will be, which means they will tell a story that allows the jurors to see the case through their client's eyes. Another approach is to see the opening statement as a trailer or preview of a movie, with the presentation of evidence being the movie itself, and the closing argument being a critique of the movie after it is finished. Opening statements are not to be used to "ingratiate" counsel or their clients to the potential jurors, pre-condition the jurors to vote in their favor, instruct the jurors about the law, or in any other way argue their case. Those comments are objectionable, and opposing counsel and trial court judges will be listening.
