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 a sink filled with limes overflowed during an office party. We salvaged a handful of the recordings. In this one, the Mr. Legal Ed team tried to demonstrate the importance of knowing your witness, well before you head to court. It’s a lesson worth learning, if not obvious.
