In honor of Oscar Night, the editors of Bloomberg Law have posted a selection of the top 10 lines from law-related movies. What do you think?
I think it's pretty good, but they completely overlooked my all-time favorite Witness for the Prosecution, the 1957 Billy Wilder movie with Charles Laughton, Tyrone Power, and Marlene Dietrich. It's full of great lines, but I'm especially fond of the moment when Charles Laughton (playing the defense barrister) destroys Dietrich on cross-examination with this: "The question is whether you were lying then or are you lying now... or whether in fact you are a chronic and habitual LIAR!"
What's your favorite legal movie line?
