He conducted a long cross-examination at trial which “drew blood on almost every point;” The plaintiff’s witness “often obfuscated or gave rambling responses rather than answering questions directly,” according to analysis of the trial by a third-party source. Jeff’s cross-examination led to a decision by the Chief Judge favorable to his client.
