Default Re: DOJ Asks To Drop Charges Against Russian Companies That Funded Troll Farm

Excuse me counselor, but MANY if not ALL companies send their lawyers to court instead of actual company executives. There is NO legal requirement of company executives to attend a pretrial hearing.

Company executives have no business in the courtroom as they would add nothing to the proceedings and would most likely say something that could put their case in jeopardy. This is NOT an uncommon practice.

I would hope that being a "lawyer" you would be more familiar with this practice.
