Most lawyers know not to ask questions in court in which they don’t know the answer.

The next most important one is to not use a word in which you don’t know the meaning.

Rudy tripped himself up over the meaning of “opacity.”

Giuliani: “In the plaintiffs’ counties, they were denied the opportunity to have an unobstructed observation and ensure opacity. “I’m not quite sure I know what opacity means. It probably means you can see, right?”

Judge Brann: “It means you can’t.”

Giuliani: “Big words, your honor,” Giuliani said.

Once you start tripping over the details, the major premise you intended starts to collapse.
