A newspaper photograph of the defence team makes them look like slick successors to Sarah Lund et al It's an incongruous image. The four well-coiffed Norwegians, pictured, look like they are the stars of the latest Nordic crime drama. But while the reality is not all that different, it's far more sobering: Geir Lippestad, Vibeke Hein Baera, Tord Jordet and Odd Ivar Groen are the lawyers forAnders Behring Breivik, the rightwing extremist who confessed to slaughtering 77 people in Oslo last summer. Still, they could be straight from The Killing. Was that their intention? "No," sighs Hein Baera, as she picks up the phone in Oslo. "It wasn't a picture we commissioned. We did around 50 interviews yesterday, and it was just like any other interview and photo shoot. Our focus is on the case, not on how photographers are taking pictures of us." Of more pressing concern is the news that psychiatrists do not now consider Breivik to be insane. Understandably, Hen Baera is irritated. "What is very weird is that we're working on this very serious case, and suddenly there is all this focus on a photograph of us." She insists the quartet had merely been walking from their offices to the courthouse. Since it was on the way, they agreed to be interviewed and photographed at the headquarters of VG, a major Norwegian newspaper. "It took 15 minutes – that was all we had time for. We didn't think about how the photographer was taking the picture. He just told us to sit on the sofa." Effortlessly cool, then. Wearily, she bats away any suggestion that the lawyers have been seeking undue publicity. "Many people have a lot of questions about the case," she says, for what must be the umpteenth time this week. "So it's important we talk about why Mr Breivik did what he did."[/QUOTE]
Bad guys are always well dressed. [sp]Yes, I know being his lawyer doesn't mean they agree with him.[/sp]
Indeed.
Otherwise known as the unluckiest legal defense team ever.
Having watched Scandinavian crime drama shows, I can confirm this.
Id hate to be his defence lawyer.

god i hate to be these lawyers
[QUOTE=Ermac20;35979629]god i hate to be these lawyers[/QUOTE] We all hate to be these lawyers, but y'know - with great mind control comes great responsibility.
I wish I was these lawyers. They earn money.
If they can get him a damn good plea bargain or a low sentence, they'll be the top lawyers in Norway for decades
Did I just read Nyborg? I live close to there.
Why does that lady have 3 sets of tits
Shame that in American lawyers dress in very boxy ugly suits with comb-overs haircuts.

[QUOTE=Negrul1;35979951]Well at least they don't seem evil.[/QUOTE] It's got to be god damn depressing being his defence to be honest.
[QUOTE=Camundongo;35980001]It's got to be god damn depressing being his defence to be honest.[/QUOTE] I don't think it's depressing. I think they fully realized the hopelessness of the case the moment they signed up. Just another day at work.
[QUOTE=Camundongo;35980001]It's got to be god damn depressing being his defence to be honest.[/QUOTE] Naa, at the end of the day they get paid. They don't mind.
[QUOTE=Camundongo;35980001]It's got to be god damn depressing being his defence to be honest.[/QUOTE] It can be emotionally straining job, but everyone must be given chance to defend themselfs, it's just how it is. As said earlier, for these people it's just another day in the job.
The worst part is it's no win, no fee

As said earlier, for these people it's just another day in the job.[/QUOTE] Oh, I know they're used to be being defence - it's a legal right after all, and a necessary one. But I doubt Breivik's case is 'just another day in the job' for them.
look at their faces none of them really want to be there that ain't stone faced professionalism that's straight up sadness
[QUOTE=smurfy;35980658]The worst part is it's no win, no fee[/QUOTE] Is it? It is only if you sign up for the case yourself. If you get assigned you get paid by the state or whatever. I doubt any lawyer would volunteer because chances to win are really slim, would be a waste of time.
How the fuck can you come with with a defense case at all? "Your honor, my client is ... um... yeah..."

[QUOTE=Shiftyze;35979842]Why does that lady have 3 sets of tits[/QUOTE] She ran out of ideas to do with all the money she's making... so she got implants...6 of them.
Just an FYI before it gets out of hand: defense lawyers do not work to get their clients away with committing a crime. They work to ensure their clients are well informed of their situation, and that their rights in the courtroom, investigation and sentencing are respected. Their job is to act as the counterpoint to the prosecution, through which they uphold the standards of evidence and due process. The client's guilt is the concern of the prosecution. Their rights are the concern of the defense. [editline]17th May 2012[/editline] That said, these guys look like tools.
