Trial Tactics and Strategies

From Battlestar Wiki, the free, open content Battlestar Galactica encyclopedia and episode guide

Trial Tactics and Strategies is a book written by civil liberties attorney Joseph Adama, the father of Admiral William Adama.

Lee Adama quotes the following line of page 273 from the book to Romo Lampkin and Gaius Baltar:

Forcing a mistrial may seem of little benefit to either side, but in fact it can be a boon to the defense. The prosecution's shown their hand. At retrial the defense has all the tactical advantages and the statistical chances of an acquittal rise by twenty-five percent. (TRS: "Crossroads, Part II")
