Chapter 89 Break Through
The audience were on the edge of their seats, anxious for Vincent.
It would be a huge embarrassment for Vincent if a famous lawyer like him was defeated by Elisa, an unknown lawyer.
Vincent finally spoke, “Third, Ms. Benett’s point is irrelevant to today’s charge. According to…”
Elisa smiled lightly. Although his last point was weak, it was sufficient as an argument.
Gareth’s eyes hadn’t strayed from Elisa the entire time.
Elisa didn’t pay any attention to him. She seemed focused on winning the case.
“Does the prosecution have anything to say?”
There were no documents before Elisa and Will. But Elisa spoke without a pause.
The audience listened in amazement.
Vincent knew he was defeated this time around. He may be a genius, but he still brought documents along. Although they may only contain some points he had jotted down, and he had all the law statutes in mind.
He couldn’t think of any arguments to counter Elisa’s. His arguments became far-fetched, evidently weaker than before.
Elisa had no intention of stopping. “Regarding the defendant’s project, my client’s company, Darcey Group, has the right to a takeover of said project, and the defendant has to return all profits obtained, plus a compensation of ten billion to my client.”
“My God!” Rachel stared in wonder.
No one thought that Darcey Group, who was doomed to lose, could not only turn around the situation, but even ask for compensation from Wickam Group?!
Will looked towards Gareth and smiled smugly.
Gareth pressed his lips into a thin line. His anger was evident across his face.
Vincent’s face darkened. “Objection, your honor!” He yelled.
“Please elaborate, defense counsel.”
Vincent clenched his fist. They may have lost the lawsuit, but he refused to agree to everything.
“My client is willing to hand over the project. But compensation is unnecessary.” He continued to explain.
Rachel took a deep breath. “This is amazing! I can’t believe Elisa is this skilful!”
Charli looked at Rachel’s innocent expression and smiled inwardly. She couldn’t come up with a response.
It was unsurprising if others hadn’t realized it. If Rachel was just a tad sharp-witted, she would have known the truth.
Elisa was close to Charli. But it was a known fact that Charli was only close to Iris. She would always attend to all of Iris’ cases.
However, Rachel hadn’t noticed this detail.
The audience felt that Elisa had crossed the line. It was a great fortune for Darcey Group to overturn the case. Elisa had proved that she had skills.
But to ask for such a large amount of compensation was over the top!
Will smiled. Elisa had kept her word. She even managed to ask for such a large amount of compensation.
Just when everyone had thought the worst of her, she did what was impossible.
Elisa continued to pick holes in Vincent’s points.
