In San Diego, many trials and depositions take place on a daily basis in the San Diego Superior Courts. The court rooms are open to the public except in limited proceedings such as juvenile hearings and other “closed door” testimony. During these hearings, many humorous comments are made during very serious proceedings. It is not unknown for jurors to laugh in a court room during testimony when something unexpected or funny is stated and, most of the time, the witness did not realize what they were saying.
Below are some examples from court rooms and depositions across the country.
The following things were actually said by people in courtrooms across the country.

A: No. I’m divorced.
Q: And what did your husband do before you divorced him?
A: A lot of things I didn’t know about.
Q: Did you blow your horn or anything?
A: After the accident?
Q: Before the accident.
A: Sure, I played for ten years. I even went to school for it.
