On the blogs: malpractice trial prep
Faithful readers of Dr. Flea's blog know the Boston-area pediatrician is preparing to testify in a malpractice trial. He doesn't divulge details of the case, but in his latest post he does share lessons from his lawyers, complete with diagrams of the courtroom.
He tells us where the jury experts say he should look (first at the plaintiff's lawyer, then at the jury), how he should hold his hands (folded in his lap) and how he should speak (slowly, no more than three sentences at a time).
"Finally, Flea was given a DVD of his screen test and a script to practice the head turning and slow-question-answering-thing daily until trial date," he writes.
