We are sad to report that Norman Lippitt has died at the age of 85. Norm was our very first guest on The Litigation War Room. He may have been our best one, too. Though his physical health was declining when we did the interview, Norm’s mind was sharp as ever. He shared some amazing war stories from his storied legal career and offered some really valuable advice for courtroom lawyers. Norman Lippitt was a lion of the law. In honor of his legacy, we’re re-playing his interview on The Litigation War Room.
“When you cross-examine a witness, the golden rule is: Don’t lose. You may not gain anything. You may not win. But don’t lose.”
