Litigants often engage the legal system with anxiety and stress, which influences their participation in the process and can affect case outcomes. Mediators and arbitrators bear the responsibility of facilitating and adjudicating the rights and obligations of litigants and must understand their own implicit biases in order to prevent these internal influences from negatively impacting objectivity and neutrality.

Whether at trial or in deposition, the “yes-no” question quite frequently constitutes a Scylla & Charybdis problem for the adverse witness: the “yes” constituting a damaging-to-witness admission, and the “no” creating a risk of the witness being impeached … maybe a BIG risk of a BIG impeachment. Thus, a willing-to-lie witness (and there are so many!!), perhaps coached by an unethical attorney (and there are so many!!), tries to avoid Scylla & Charybdis by claiming “I don’t remember X.” As experienced litigators well know, and newbie litigators will soon discover, these claims can be very tough to successfully attack. Learn the very best lines of attack against these lies.
