Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Good evening. I'll be assisting you with your question.
There isn't a set of specific areas they will try to exploit, but they will dig into your background, the details of the basis for the lawsuit (whatever happened that brought you to sue the police) and will try to trip you up with any discrepancy between your story and what other evidence there may be.
Without knowing the details of your case or the evidence involved, it is difficult to say exactly what those questions may be.
good points. they will try to trip me/us up, while still claiming to being impartial?
Sure, they are interested in seeing if your story remains consistent, which is a sign of truthfulness.
Ah, makes sense.
I guess I'm a skeptic by nature :) Thanks for the info!
In reality, there is nothing to be nervous about. All you have to do is go in and be truthful. If you do that, everything else will take care of itself.
I certainly will do that. I'll be in mediation in 14 short hours! Thanks again.
I understand. It is always good to go over whatever evidence you may have, just to make sure you are recalling everything correctly.
Glad to help. Good luck!
