BUT WHAT ABOUT HIS BITE? A lawyer in New York has been fined $8,500 for barking at a witness in a deposition. Maybe the case was a dog. Maybe the witness was being catty.
You must make allowances for the fact that it happened in New York. People are a bit high strung there. They do not value the social graces of the south or the west.
Still, it is a bit hard to carry on one's profession with dignity knowing that somewhere, even in Yankee Land, someone in your profession is barking.
