deltues was doing her homework:

[excerpt from "an actual trial transcript," apparently]:
The Court: Next witness.
Ms. Olschner: Your Honor, at this time I would like to swat Mr. Buck in the head with his client's deposition.
The Court: You mean read it?
Ms. Olschner: No, sir. I mean to swat him [in] the head with it. Pursuant to Rule 32, I may use the deposition "for any purpose" and that is the purpose for which I want to use it.
The Court: Well, it does say that.
(Pause.)
The Court: There being no objection, you may proceed.
(Whereupon Ms. Olschner swatted Mr. Buck in the head with a deposition.)


Oh, those wacky litigators.
