In trial practice, for a judge to agree that an attorney’s objection, such as to a question, is valid. thus, an attorney asks a witness a question, and the opposing lawyer objects, saying the question is “irrelevant, immaterial and incompetent,” “leading,” “argumentative,” or some other objection. if the judge agrees he/she will rule “sustained,” meaning the objection is approved and the question cannot be asked or answered. however, if the judge finds the question proper, he/she will “overrule” the objection.
