May 1993 - Did I Really Ask That?
From Judge David Cleveland
of Palo Pinto (29th District Court), this testimony from the trial of will contest involving two wills left by Walter Howeth:
Q. When did you last see Walter?
A. At the funeral.
Q. Did he make any comment to you at that time
A. No, sir.
Judge Cleveland adds: "I have wondered who might have been most relieved that the answer was no: the jury, opposing parties, mortician, or the doctor who signed the death certificate."
