Showdown in Judge’s Trial is Quite a Show


A showdown between two flamboyant attorneys has attracted many spectators to the Brooklyn, N.Y., corruption trial of a state judge.

The judge, Gerald P. Garson, is accused of accepting gifts to influence divorce cases.

Lead defense lawyer Michael S. Washor is trying to portray the prosecutor as overzealous, the New York Times reports.

At one point during cross-examination, Washor asked a witness, “Are you making this up as you go along?” When he was displeased with an opposing lawyer’s argument, he complained, “I’m not running a law school here.”
