Trial Tactics and Strategies is a book written by civil liberties attorney Joseph Adama, the father of Admiral William Adama (TRS: "Crossroads, Part II").
Lee Adama quotes the following line of page 273 from the book to Romo Lampkin and Gaius Baltar:
- Forcing a mistrial may seem of little benefit to either side, but in fact it can be a boon to the defense. The prosecution's shown their hand. At retrial the defense has all the tactical advantages and the statistical chances of an acquittal rise by twenty-five percent.
