I appreciate your pun, but seriously the opposition was out-classed. My impression is that they were so encumbered by dogma that it significantly hindered their defense. At one point the Alameda Counsel was at a loss for words, trapped in a conflict between where the Judge's questions were leading and where his "theology" dictated he must go. "Deer in the headlights" comes to mind.

Our side did many things very well; one of those things was what I'll call the parry. Don would rarely make a direct dispute to the Judge's assertions, but instead redirected them to where he wanted them to go.

A fascinating experience, followed by a fine dinner with good company.
