Closing arguments just finished up in the Minnesota election contest trial. Eric Kleefeld reviews the Franken closing. More soon on Coleman’s closing.
Late Update: Kleefeld runs down the closing Norm’s lawyer gave. My experience is that lawyers use adolescent flattery on judges when they don’t have much of a case (which always struck me as just reinforcing to the judge that they have no case). Lot of that going on in the Coleman closing argument.
