Spanish term or phrase: Protesto su señoría
Usted nos está pintando a Joe como un monstruo Señora, no será que está inventando todo esto a ultima hora para disminuir el peso de la grave acusación que pesa sobre Usted.

LARRY SE PONE EN PIE MOLESTO
Protesto, su señoría, el fiscal trata de quitarle relevancia a importantes declaraciones que demuestran que aquí la verdadera victima ha sido la Sra May y no Joe como se pretende hacer ver.

English translation:Objection! Your Honor
Explanation:
I'm new to this--Just curious...is it common to ask for help on bid examples? It strikes me as a bit odd.

the correct answer is "Objection, your Honour!"


Explanation:
This happens on a trial, and the defending counsel complains to the Judge against the attorney attitude.
Therefore a defending counsel in a trial MUST ALWAYS refers to the judge as YOUR HONOUR, and to complain to him as OBJECTION, this are the rules in a trial
Good luck!

Ridiculous


Explanation:
I agree with some colleagues here; I think we should boycott Gina Vergara now and in the future.

It is not clear, however, if she just wishes to get help with the sample for the bid or if, in fact, she has already been given the job. If the latter, then my sympathties go out to Gina's client.

There should be better monitoring on this site. Where are the proz moderators when you need them? Postings like that should not be allowed. I call on everyone out there who sees such a ridiculous posting and use the new feature offered by this site to "squash" it.
