Law.com has compiled a list of the best (or worst, depending on your viewpoint) examples it could find of lawyers behaving badly during depositions. The list includes a story about one attorney tossing coffee at opposing counsel and another attorney who falsely accused his opponent of trying to use pistachios to poison a legal assistance. Really.
Perhaps you can use some of these anecdotes during class to teach students how not to behave around opposing counsel as well as the importance of maintaining one's cool when your opponent loses his since all of the offenders involved got into hot water with the bar. See the entire list of "lawyers behaving badly" here.
