And lo and behold, there is this wonderful article in yesterday's Times Union by Paul Grondahl about Legs Diamond's trial in Troy.
There is a brief mention of Daniel H. Prior, Diamond's chief defense attorney. He's been described as the "greatest trial attorney of his time." See this web page article:
Here's the picture from the Times Union. Prior is sitting at the defense table with his head resting on his hand. Hop on over to the TU for the full article.
(I just re-read that sentence and looked at the picture and realized everyone at the table has their head in their hand. Even the judge. Below is the caption from the TU)
