This Makes Me Sick to be a Lawyer

Thanks to an awesome friend and reader, I saw this video (found by Robert Ambrogi).

This appears to be a lawyer in a deposition (or similar context). He’s being asked “Are you truthful in your dealings with your employees?,” and he will not answer, claiming it’s vague, ambiguous, and over broad.

Honestly, things like this give all lawyers horrible reputations. I’ve got heartburn right now, partly from my nacho dinner and partly because of this slimy guy.
