ambush: trial by ~

CONTEXT & COMMENTS

Def.: A defense attorney, in a trial, may claim trial by ambush when he or she has not received full pre-trial discovery and is, therefore, surprised by the late revelation of evidence.
       • I submit, Your Honor, that admitting testimony by this witness is tantamount to a trial by ambush.
