Joshua Dratel, attorney of Ross Ulbricht who is accused of having run Silk Road as a criminal organization, repeatedly claimed in court “that evidence from Internet interactions “can be distorted, edited, moved and manipulated.” He advised the jury to instead rely on evidence from real life. “There’s a distinction between the Internet and IRL for a reason. We are here in IRL, and we have to make judgements in IRL,” he said.”
