Mark Lanier on jury selection

"A great man said you can fool some of the people all of the time. I am looking for 12 of those," says a cartoon posted on the wall of the Lanier Law Firm offices, according to a 2001 Wall Street Journal article linked to from the Lanier Law Firm website. The article itself describes how attorneys like Lanier extended the circle of asbestos defendants beyond the original manufacturers to include such alleged wrongdoers as Procter & Gamble, Campbell Soup, MetLife, and Dow Jones.
