The Mock Trial team played its first match of the year this past Wednesday night. Lawyers Yair Gross (’16), CJ Glicksman (’16), and Avraham Tsikhanovski (’16) argued on behalf of an alleged drug dealer. They faced the prosecution of the Browning High School who supported the police officer who broke into the defendant’s apartment without a warrant. The witnesses, Kelly Roberts (the alleged drug dealer), Sam Doolittle (the owner of a daycare next door to Roberts), and Parker Pederson (Roberts’ friend), were played by Shimmy Mandelbaum (’16), Ben Bral (’18), and Dovid Tanner (’18), respectively. After three heated hours of opening statements, direct examination, cross examination, objections, and closing statements, MTA emerged victorious. Gaining sixty-four out of sixty-five possible points, the mock trial team left the Manhattan Court House with their heads held high. They hope to continue their success in their next match this coming Wednesday night against the Bronx School of Law and Community Service.
