The real rose of Texas: Racehorse Haynes

Say you sue me because you say my dog bit you. Well, now this is my defense:

My dog doesn't bite. And second, in the alternative, my dog was tied up that night. And third, I don't believe you really got bit. And fourth, I don't have a dog.

--Richard Haynes, at an ABA conference, long time ago

WAC? loves trials and Texans. Houston trial lawyer Mark Bennett publishes a blog we'll start to watch more called Defending People: The Art and Science of Criminal Defense Trial Lawyering. See on now 80-year-old Richard "Racehorse" Haynes "A Great Moment In Trial Lawyering" And see Bennett's "Resiliency".
