Marshall Falls At Trial

During a morning break in testimony at his trial in State Supreme Court, Mr. Marshall became dizzy while using the bathroom, said Kenneth E. Warner, one of his lawyers. His body crumpled and his head smacked into the partition in a stall.

A folding chair was brought into the bathroom, where Mr. Marshall’s wife, Charlene, Mr. Warner and court officers tended to him. Paramedics later arrived, and Mr. Marshall was rolled out on a stretcher about 12:30 p.m.

Justice A. Kirke Bartley Jr. suspended testimony for the rest of the day.

I am sorry for Marshall. We must remember he's in his mid 80's and so the trial may be taking a terrible toll on his health.

I know the feeling.

I am decades younger than Mr. Marshall and I still suffer from effects including night terror attacks. I could not survive another round in the court system.

This is the kind of stress that can kill without a doubt it damages quality of life and it will shorten a person's life.

Sounds like the devil is already stalking Marshall.
