Rick Kabra | "Cloud is here and it's in the mainstream"

Are You Asking if I speak English Because My Name is Saad? Yes.

EWhat do you do if a fellow legal professional says something offensive or objectionable to a witness? What actions do you take especially if the witness is adverse in interest to your client? These are the questions Romesh struggled with first-hand after hearing a lawyer appear to ask a witness if he can speak English because his name was foreign. Romesh explores the impact objectionable comments make not only on the target of those comments but witnesses to the comment and the struggles he personally experienced trying to make decisions in response to those comments. You'll likely disagree with the decisions Romesh made. But given that there's no rule book for responding to these types of comments, Romesh is using this episode as an opportunity to learn what others would have done in response to this situation.#crowdsource
