Thou shall not kill your case:

Thou shall not kill your case: Younger’s 10 Commandments for cross-examination help lawyers make points, avoid gaffes, by Alex De Grand, State Bar of Wisconsin, reported on a February 5 State Bar continuing legal education seminar “Revisiting Younger’s 10 Commandments”.

They are also revisited in The How-To-Win Trial Manual, by Ralph Adam Fine. According to the publisher, it "demonstrates why many of Irving Younger’s famous Ten Commandments of Cross-Examination are not only also wrong, but why following them significantly reduces your chance of winning."
