Can I Wear a RED MAGA HAT During Your Medical Malpractice Trial? NY Attorney Gerry Oginski Explains
During Your Medical Malpractice Trial Can I Wear a "MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN" (MAGA) Hat?
NY Medical Malpractice & Personal Injury Lawyer Gerry Oginski Explains
You know what I'm talking about, right?
That red hat that was made popular by our sitting President.
It was his campaign slogan.
I don't care whether you agree with his policies or not.
I don't care what your political beliefs are.
I honestly don't care what you think of the President.
But you know that RED MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN hat has polarized many people. Some get upset when they see someone wearing it. One fast-food restaurant worker even refused to serve someone wearing that hat.
Another person attacked someone wearing that red hat.
You also know that living here in New York and in the United States we have the right to say and wear what we want. It's called freedom of speech.
That's all good and well, but let's get to the question I raised in the title of this video...
Can I wear this red hat during your trial?
The answer is I could.
But more importantly, why would I?
No matter what I believe, wearing this hat to YOUR jury trial will do nothing but inflame many on the jury. Why would I ever want to do that? Why would I want to alter the jury's focus onto the political landscape and what this hat stands for instead of having them focus on you and the facts of this case?
The reality is that I wouldn't.
I want them focusing on what your doctor did wrong and how it caused you injury. That's what I want them to focus on. Anything that distracts from that message doesn't belong in the courtroom, regardless of ones' right to free speech.
