I have not seen a case which has been better prepared or presented than this one. In addition to the very substantial success, a number of matters arose during trial which demonstrated to me the thorough, sophisticated and ingenious way in which all aspects of this case were prepared and direct and cross-examinations were conducted (by Richard Shekter).
