Additional practice.

Write explanations of the phrases set off in bold in the dialogue below:

Lawyer A (Optimistic): Well, considering the evidence at hand, I genuinely believe that there's a chance for Harvey Weinstein to mount a strong defense. The burden of proof lies with the prosecution, and they'll have to establish his guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

Lawyer B (Pessimistic): I understand your perspective, but the sheer volume of allegations and the weight of the #MeToo movement cannot be disregarded. There's no doubt that the court will consider the principle of in pari delicto given the number of accusers and the alleged misconduct spanning years.

Lawyer A (Optimistic): While it's true that the allegations are substantial, we mustn't overlook the importance of due process. We could potentially argue that some of the claims may not be subject to the statute of limitations, allowing us to focus on recent incidents where ex post facto evidence could be pivotal.

Lawyer B (Pessimistic): I appreciate your optimism, but the ultra vires nature of his actions in the industry could further strengthen the prosecution's case. They'll likely present evidence in lieu of proving a consistent pattern of behavior, which would be detrimental to our defense.

Lawyer A (Optimistic): I see your concerns, but the court will be cautious in contemplation of preserving the presumption of innocence until proven guilty. With a strategic approach and skilled cross-examination, we might cast reasonable doubt on the credibility of some witnesses.

Lawyer B (Pessimistic): It's crucial to anticipate that the prosecution will argue with prejudice due to the emotional distress suffered by the victims. The per se evidence of harassment could sway the jury against Weinstein, given the societal shift towards advocating for victims' rights.

Lawyer A (Optimistic): While this case is undoubtedly challenging, let's not underestimate the power of a well-constructed defense. We'll have to argue in favor of Weinstein's rights while respecting the victims' experiences, finding the delicate balance between preserving his reputation and addressing the serious allegations.

Lawyer B (Pessimistic): I respect your dedication, but we must be prepared for a legal showdown without prejudice. The court's decision will have lasting implications, potentially setting a precedent for future cases involving allegations of sexual harassment.

Lawyer A (Optimistic): Agreed, this case will be an immense test for our legal system. Let's ensure we approach it with due diligence and uphold the principles of justice.
