If, during direct examination, you determine that cross-examination is necessary, conduct a quick damage assessment from the perspective of the jury--keeping clearly in focus that the jurors are the sole judges of factual disputes, the credibility of the witnesses, and the amount of damages to be awarded.
When examining a witness who seeks to explain every answer, you may request the court to instruct the witness to limit answers during cross-examination to responses to the questions posed by the examiner and to further instruct that defense counsel, during redirect examination, will have a chance to bring out explanations.
Those examiners who do not seek to enlist the aid of the court in dealing with the problem witness and allow the witness to be unresponsive or evasive believe that the jurors will be able to detect the witness's lack of cooperation and candor and will draw their own adverse conclusions about the witness.
