BIG BREASTED WOMAN "PUTTING OFF THE JURY"
Chicago attorney Thomas Gooch claims the woman's sole purpose "is to draw the attention of the jury away from the relevant proceedings" - a big time case over a used car. So he asked Cook County Circuit Judge Anita Rivkin-Carothers to order the woman to sit in the gallery with other spectators. "Personally, I like large breasts," he said.
"However, I object to somebody I don't think is a qualified paralegal sitting at the counsel table - when there's already two lawyers there - dressed in such a fashion as to call attention to herself."
But the woman's boss Dmitry Feofanov said the woman is his paralegal assistant and a key part of his team in the big time show trial - something Gooch disputes.
Feofanov said Gooch cites no "good faith legal argument" why she can't sit at counsel's table.
The big time case, Song and Maria Sayavongsa v. Exotic Motors Inc., is scheduled for trial June 2.
