Col.Lawson: The case is unusual in that the defendants are charged with crimes committed in the name of the law. These men together with their deceased or fugitive colleagues, are the embodiment of what passed for justice during the Third Reich. The defendants served as judges during the period of the Third Reich. Therefore you your honors serving as judges on the bench will be sitting in judgment of judges in the dock And this is as it should be. For only a judge knows how much more a court is than a courtroom it is a process and a spirit it is the house of law. The defendants knew this too, they knew courtrooms well. They sat in their black robes and they distorted, they perverted, they destroyed justice and law in Germany!
