    You are the judge presiding over a trial

    You are the judge presiding over a trial and think that a considerable amount of evidence presented by the defence lawyer is of no relevance to the case. So you say to him:

    A) Are you quite sure that this piece of evidence does not conflict
    with what you have previously said?

    B) in my opinion, the evidence presented by the defence lawyer has
    little bearing upon the case.

    C) The evidence presented in this case seems to me to be rather
    controversial.

    D) The defence lawyer has presented his evidence in a very precise
    manner.

    E) l put it to you, as the lawyer for the defence, that much of this
    evidence has nothing to do with the case.


    I think E, you?

    Re: You are the judge presiding over a trial

    E seems to be the best answer of the choices given.

    In a typical US trial, however, the opposing attorney, not the judge, would most likely object to evidence that seemed irrelevant to the case. The judge then approves or disapproves the objection.

    E is the only possible answer. D doesn't fit at all.

    Can't be E. You are the judge and not
