Quote of the Day: John Galliano's Jewish Lawyer Speaks

"There are always those who preach, who say 'how can a Jew defend anyone accused of such slurs," he says. "My job as a lawyer is to guarantee that a person gets a fair trial and that his rights will be protected. I am wary of pre-judgment, that's not my job.... [John Galliano] is hardly the devil. I never would have taken the case had I thought that." --Stephane Zerbib, Galliano's Jewish lawyer, regarding the defense of his client to Y Net News.
