PROCEEDINGS (Witness sworn.)

DIRECT EXAMINATION

BY MS. STEDMAN:

 

Q. Good afternoon. Dr. Lubit. My name is Emily Stedman, I’m an attorney at Quarles & Brady in Milwaukee, and I represent Leonard Pozner in this case.
For the purpose of the record, if there is something that you do not understand, please ask me and I will try to rephrase. If you do not tell me. I’ll assume you understand. Is that okay?

A. Yes.

 

Q. Please state your full name.

A. Roy Lubit.

Q. And Mr. Dr. Lubit, can you explain to the jury why you cannot appear in Madison for the trial in this case?

A. A combination of personal and work reasons.  I am a single parent, it’s a three-day weekend, the trial starts during that weekend, and the following week I have to be away for two trials. I can neither do that much time away, and it’s not fair to my family and it would be exhausting, I wouldn’t be in good enough shape for the second trials.
