We at HB Litigation Conferences LLC recently took over the Mealey’s Conference business, which a couple of us actually started as part of Mealey Publications, now owned by LexisNexis.  With the acquisition came one department that somehow escaped the due diligence scrutiny of three acquisition teams.  The guys in that department, which they dubbed  Mr. Legal Ed, produced educational video tapes for lawyers.  Much of what they created was destroyed when an inter-office prank involving a nail gun, a rented popcorn machine and a monkey took a turn for the worse. We salvaged a handful of the recordings.  In this one, the Mr. Legal Ed team tried to demonstrate the importance prepping your witness to NOT — no matter how much pressure he might feel — stray into areas he knows nothing about.   Disclaimer:  the opinions expressed here are ludicrous and, frankly, the fact that you’ve read this far, well, let’s just say, it makes us wonder.
