Determining guilt is like a box o' chocolates.

So Hanks finally made it out of that airport, huh?

She Gumped it.

Alright, that's three pretty solid references to start things off. I like where this is going.

/this could be Big

Was the lawyers name Wilson?

Considering that the prosecutor is a volleyball, she didn't have a chance to begin with.

Side note: I think it's actually really cool that a star as big as Hanks is serving jury duty, instead of trying to get out of it.

Sounds like the lawyer has a brain cloud

This is why lawyers and celebrity jurors shouldn't act like they're bosom buddies.

Harry... HARRY... That's not what I said. Harry, that's NOT WHAT I SAID!  I know that she can GET the case, can she WIN the case?

Those lawyers in LA are so incompetent. This would never have happened in Philadelphia.

I was summoned for jury duty once and in the pool of hundreds was a local Canadian celebrity famous for renovation shows. I imagined he might be excused because of who he was, but I guess they don't care. I would imagine it would be disruptive to have someone like Tom Hanks in the courtroom. But it might also be ideal for actors to serve a jury because they have lots of free time.

Having to retry the case could also turn into a Money Pit for the prosecution.

Bedstead Polisher: Canadian celebrity famous for renovation shows


Wait, I think I know this one...he have a show on HGTV?

So somehow Tom Hanks was in a courtroom.  Could someone explain it to me like I'm a five year old?  From what I understand, the rookie attorney made a terminal mistake, likely to get her cast away from her job.  But it's not like she and Hanks were bosum buddies or anything, right?  It's just that thing you do when you meet a famous celebrity.  It sounds like a green mile away from any kind of corruption, but nobody from the earth to the moon really knows what's going on.  It's not like this was a bank robbery and she was shouting catch me if you can, was it?

He's an interior designer and appears on a few shows (I knew him from Restaurant Makeover), not sure that he has his own. Very few people knew who I was talking about when I said I saw him that day.

In the matter of Joe vs. Thevolcano, this attorney was just green. Mile by mile, on her road to perdition, she'll get better. Lawyers aren't just angels and demons, but I cannot believe she cast away the entire case like that. It's a big mistake to shout praise to a juror especially when you're extremely loud and incredibly close to him. The other prosecutors, Turner and Hooch, should have told her, "don't do that thing you do!"
Lawyers near the Pacific are just different and in a league of their own, I guess. Even though this was domestic violence case, at least the defendant who got off wasn't a ladykiller. I'm sure a dragnet will have him back in court within a year. Toy story.

Looks like he and the lawyer won't be Bosom Buddies any time soon.

Yeah, it's really cool that he's forced to come up with some kind of "consensus" about a case in the criminal justice system with what is most likely a bunch of morons.

/Oh come on, you know I'm right.

This is my favorite of the thread. It's subtle. Well done.

I'm not arguing that with you.

Really, though, how hard is it to just do your goddamn job? You go into court, do that thing you do, and go home. That's it.

Nice.

I like Tom Hanks. He seems to be a real down-to-earth, friendly guy. Not your typical celebrity that tends to be in a league of their own.
 
2013-09-13 05:24:03 PM
I heard about this on the radio.  Fly 'er to sacramento, I guess, where she has lower odds of finding a celebrity as a juror?

Because not only must justice be done, it must be seen to be done. This was a situation that could give the impression of impropriety so it had to be canned with consequences.

Something something shaving Ryan's privates.

That was Big of him not to give her a hard time, after all there is no crying in courtrooms.  Of course she may have been hot and he had to conceal his Woody.
