Socrates Is Back On Trial!
Yes you heard it right - Socrates, the 2000 year old Greek philosopher, has gone back to court in Manhattan's Federal Courthouse.
Defense attorney Benjamin Brafman, better known for representing IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn, was defending corruption charges levied against this larger than life Athenian, who was sentenced to death in 399 B.C.
Socrates was charged with failing to honor the god's, and causing a youth rebel uprising.
Sadly, it was reported than no-one wore a toga to Court!
