• RQFTCI98 Game 10 Rounds 9-10: lawyers, challenge

    From Mark Brader@21:1/5 to All on Thu Jul 8 02:12:34 2021
    These questions were written to be asked in Toronto on 1998-04-06, and
    should be interpreted accordingly. All questions were written by
    members of the Usual Suspects, but have been reformatted and may have
    been retyped and/or edited by me. I will reveal the correct answers in
    about 3 days.

    For further information, including an explanation of the """ notation
    that may appear in these rounds, see my 2020-06-23 companion posting on "Reposted Questions from the Canadian Inquisition (RQFTCI*)".


    I think I wrote 6 questions in one of these rounds.


    ** Game 10, Round 9 - History [with 50% Canadian content] - Lawyers and Clients

    1. The first half of this round involves Canadian people and
    Canadian cases. At Guy Paul Morin's original trial for murder
    in 1986, his lawyer put forward the defense that he was innocent
    but that, if the jury disagreed, they should take into account
    that Morin was also insane. Who was this lawyer?

    2. Name the lawyer who co-wrote and narrated "The Scales of
    Justice", and is """now""" defending former Nova Scotia
    premier Gerald Regan on various sex-related charges.

    3. Name either of the lawyers who defended Paul Bernardo at
    his trial.

    4. He was a violinist in a symphony orchestra, a football player
    in the CFL, a lawyer, and finally a judge on the Supreme Court
    of Canada. Name him.

    5. During the 1980s this Canadian lawyer argued several cases
    involving constitutional and energy issues *against* the
    government of his native province; then in April 1989 he
    became premier of the province. Name him.

    6. The remaining questions involve cases and people in the US.
    In the original trial of O.J. Simpson, which member of the
    defense team refused to cooperate with Johnny Cochrane's racially
    based strategy?

    7. In 1978 in San Francisco, George Moscone (the mayor) and
    Harvey Milk (a politician and gay rights advocate) were killed
    by conservative politician Dan White. In the end White was
    convicted of manslaughter, but not murder. What bizarre version
    of the insanity defense was used at his trial?

    8. What lawyer defended Jack Ruby on the charge of murdering Lee
    Oswald? He """has""" also made personal injury cases a
    specialty, winning the sobriquet "King of Torts", through his
    extensive use of films and other demonstrative physical evidence.

    9. What lawyer successfully prosecuted Charles Manson for murder,
    then wrote the book "Helter Skelter" about the case?

    10. The 1925 case that inspired the play and movie "Inherit the
    Wind" involved a famous lawyer on each side (one of them a
    past candidate for president). The defendant was accused of
    teaching Darwin's theory of evolution. Name any *two* of the
    three men in the real-life case.


    ** Game 10, Round 10 - Challenge Round

    I'm going to present and score the complete round even though one of
    the pairs is current events. One of the events might be memorable
    enough anyway...

    * A. """Current""" Events in Crime

    A1. Henry Waszczuk and Italo Labignan are hosts of a show on
    cable TV's The Sports Network, while Karen Monaghan was
    host of a show on the same subject on the Women's Television
    Network. The three hosts were each fined $800 on Friday for
    committing the same offense during production of their shows.
    (One of them was fined $200 more for a related offense.)
    What did they all do?

    A2. """Last year""" in London, England, Anthony-Noel Kelly
    produced sculptures that were exhibited in an art gallery.
    """On Friday""" he was sentenced to 9 months in prison as
    a result of the way he made them, and his accomplice was
    fined 400. What did they do?


    * B. Vitamin Deficiencies

    B1. What disease is caused by a deficiency of Vitamin D?
    B2. What disease is caused by a deficiency of Vitamin B1?


    * C. Movies about TV

    C1. The story of the movie "Quiz Show" was based on deceptions
    committed by the producers of what real-life TV show depicted
    in the film?

    C2. In the movie "Network", who played the "Mad Prophet of the
    Airwaves", Howard Beale?


    * D. L.s.d.

    D1. Until the early 1970s, the pound sterling was divided into
    240 pence, not 100. The abbreviation for the new penny is
    "p", but for the old penny, it was "d." This letter was
    taken from the initial of what ancient Roman coin?

    D2. 12d. was equal to one shilling, abbreviated s. It is
    only a coincidence that "shilling" starts with S: this
    abbreviation, too, was really the initial of an ancient
    Roman coin. What coin?


    * E. -Icles in Religion

    We give you a definition; you name the word. Each answer ends with
    the sounds "ick'l", but *not* necessarily spelled -icle.

    E1. (Noun.) A clandestine religious meeting, especially of
    Nonconformists or Dissenters; a building used for this.

    E2. (Adjective.) Pertaining to an ancient Jewish sect
    distinguished by strict observance of traditional and
    written law; self-righteous, formalistic, hypocritical.

    missing 4 rounds! Hearty congratulations, sir!


    I think I wrote 6 questions in one of these rounds.

    Morin was acquitted in that trial, then convicted on appeal in 1992,
    then acquitted again in 1995 after a further appeal based on DNA
    evidence. In 2020 the DNA was used to identify the presumptive actual

    because Hoover had died in 2015. Morin is still alive and so is Ruby.

    2. Name the lawyer who co-wrote and narrated "The Scales of
    Justice", and is """now""" defending former Nova Scotia
    premier Gerald Regan on various sex-related charges.

    3. Name either of the lawyers who defended Paul Bernardo at
    his trial.

    John Rosen, Tony Bryant.

    involving constitutional and energy issues *against* the
    government of his native province; then in April 1989 he
    became premier of the province. Name him.

    Clyde Wells.

    In Newfoundland. He later became Chief Justice of the provincial
    Supreme Court. He's still alive.

    6. The remaining questions involve cases and people in the US.
    In the original trial of O.J. Simpson, which member of the
    defense team refused to cooperate with Johnny Cochrane's racially
    based strategy?

    Robert Shapiro.

    7. In 1978 in San Francisco, George Moscone (the mayor) and
    Harvey Milk (a politician and gay rights advocate) were killed
    by conservative politician Dan White. In the end White was
    convicted of manslaughter, but not murder. What bizarre version
    of the insanity defense was used at his trial?

    The "Twinkie defense" -- temporary insanity due to high blood sugar
    from junk food. 4 for everyone -- Dan Blum, Dan Tilque, and Pete.

    8. What lawyer defended Jack Ruby on the charge of murdering Lee
    Oswald? He """has""" also made personal injury cases a
    specialty, winning the sobriquet "King of Torts", through his
    extensive use of films and other demonstrative physical evidence.

    Melvin Belli. (He died in 1996.) 4 for Dan Blum.

    9. What lawyer successfully prosecuted Charles Manson for murder,
    then wrote the book "Helter Skelter" about the case?

    Vincent Bugliosi. (He died in 2015.)

    10. The 1925 case that inspired the play and movie "Inherit the
    Wind" involved a famous lawyer on each side (one of them a
    past candidate for president). The defendant was accused of
    teaching Darwin's theory of evolution. Name any *two* of the
    three men in the real-life case.

    Clarence Darrow, William Jennings Bryan, John Scopes. 4 for everyone.

    The respective fictionalized characters from "Inherit the Wind"
    were Henry Drummond, Matthew Harrison Brady, and Bertram Cates.

    240 pence, not 100. The abbreviation for the new penny is
    "p", but for the old penny, it was "d." This letter was
    taken from the initial of what ancient Roman coin?

    Denarius. 4 for Dan Blum and Dan Tilque.

    D2. 12d. was equal to one shilling, abbreviated s. It is
    only a coincidence that "shilling" starts with S: this
    abbreviation, too, was really the initial of an ancient
    Roman coin. What coin?

    Solidus (not sestertius).


    * E. -Icles in Religion

    We give you a definition; you name the word. Each answer ends with
    the sounds "ick'l", but *not* necessarily spelled -icle.

    E1. (Noun.) A clandestine religious meeting, especially of
    Nonconformists or Dissenters; a building used for this.

    Conventicle.

    E2. (Adjective.) Pertaining to an ancient Jewish sect
    distinguished by strict observance of traditional and
    written law; self-righteous, formalistic, hypocritical.

    Pharisaical. 4 for Dan Blum and Dan Tilque.
