That dep’s gonna be a donnybrook. I’ll be surprise if they get even one straight answer – heck, I’m betting Mr. Donziger isn’t even going to be able to say for certain that he’s Mr. Donzinger: “it depends on what you mean by ‘state your name . . . ‘”.

I hope they post the transcript – it should be fun.
