** In the same episode, although she didn't actually object, Angela took the fifth to prevent her from incriminating someone ''else''. She was told that the Fifth Amendment only protected her from incriminating ''herself''. She wound up taking the First, which protects freedom of assembly, including friendship, and is four better than the Fifth! The judge was not impressed.

'''Judge:''' ... you know what, I'll sustain that. (Turns to opposing counsel.) It's otherwise known as a "prejudicial" question.[[note]]Basically, a question where the answer is so obvious the question is irrelevant, e.g. "Is the sky blue?" "Is the Pope Catholic?"[[/note]]\\

** In the episode "[[Recap/StarTrekTheNextGenerationS2E9TheMeasureOfAMan Measure of a Man]]" Picard defends Data in a courtroom process, objecting to a plan that would see him labelled as Starfleet "property" and dismantled. The prosecution, for their case against Data, requests to [[ArtificialLimbs remove the defendant's hand]]. Picard is immediately on his feet with his objections before realizing that he can't actually object in a legal manner-in [[AFatherToHisMen typical Picard style]], he just doesn't like the idea of them removing his second officer's body parts-and withdraws his objection.
** In the episode "[[Recap/StarTrekTheNextGenerationS4E13TheDevilsDue The Devil's Due]]", Picard argues a court case against a woman claiming to be Ardra, a supernatural being in Velexian myth, with Data arbitrating. Ardra objects when Picard leads a witness, while Data himself objects to Ardra's {{Courtroom Antic}}s in displaying her "powers" ("The advocate will refrain from making her opponent disappear"). When the ''Enterprise'' crew gets hold of her technology and Picard starts displaying the same powers, Ardra objects again, but Data decides he's allowed some leeway in the circumstances. Once Picard has successfully duplicated the tricks Ardra used earlier, and ''only'' those tricks, Data promptly declares that Picard's leeway has run out.

* In the ''Series/RedDwarf'' episode "Justice", Kryten's defence of Rimmer on 1,169 counts of manslaughter is to present him (accurately) as a sad incompetent. Naturally, Rimmer can't bring himself to let this slide, and repeatedly objects to his own defence. After he's found innocent, he objects again.
