Question about objecting during trial...

They shouldn't be saying anything in their opening statement that you would need to object to. They aren't supposed to argue the case or talk about any specific documents in opening statements.

There may not be any opening or closing statements without a jury trial. You do have to be careful what you say in opening statements, as you can see in Homelessincalifornia's thread; where the judge got on him for arguing the case a bit in his opening.

This is good advice. I went overboard on my opening statement, and I think that ticked the judge off and get things started on the wrong foot. Plaintiff didn't give an opening statement. If they don't, I wouldn't either. I would advise saying as little as possible, besides objecting of course.
