Verdict from the Courtroom

To say it was tense in the courtroom as we were waiting for a verdict would be an understatement.  My heart was pounding in my chest as it all started to become real for me, all we'd done, how far we'd come. 

Libby was stoic and Mrs. Libby daubed her eyes as the verdict was read.  Nobody on the prosecution showed much emotion but Zeidenberg held his head in his hands.  Libby himself was seated between Wells and Jeffress.  He did not move. 

Afterwards Mrs. Libby came up and hugged Jeffress profusely, then Wells, saying "love you, love you" with much emotion.  Then all the rest of the defense team.  She didn't hug Scooter however, or hold his hand, or even make eye contact. 

Wells said he would make a statement in the hallway in 10 minutes, and Fitzgerald will give one on the courthouse steps.

It's a good day to be an American, huh?
