Wake Up and Smell the Questions, Part Two

By: Monday March 5, 2007 1:56 pm

Fitz: reading through the question of whether the story was based on what he knew about the crime they were investigating. That's no different than if he tells a story that the law enforcement doesn't account. The defense used it in their summation. Walton: What about that Mr Wells, you made a bit point about [...]


Wake Up and Smell the Questions

By: Monday March 5, 2007 1:15 pm

We just received a note that two teams will return to court to review a note from the jury. Whew hew, the media room jumps to life at the chance of doing … something. The two legal teams appear to have the note. Some animated discussion. Jeffress appears to be a happy man, Team Fitz [...]

Two Questions: Part Three

By: Monday March 5, 2007 10:53 am

Walton's responding question (in response to the question on reasonable doubt) and his answer (in response to the Cooper question) is online now–thanks to Jeralyn for grabbing it for us. Here's his reasonable doubt response (and this may answer some qusetions about supplementary instructions a few of you were discussing earlier–that is, there isn't one): [...]

Two Questions: Part Two

By: Monday March 5, 2007 7:30 am

Walton back in. Asked a question of someone–perhaps to clsoe the door. Three people for a different case. Walton putting off the start of his next case. Looks like he's rescheduling his next court case until June. Now they're talking about June/July time frame for next trial. Okay, they've got it rescheduled. Walton: I apologize. [...]

Two Questions

By: Monday March 5, 2007 6:10 am

Good morning firepups. Jane and I both had very relaxing weekends with the poodles and the MilleniaLab, respectively. Now that I'm all rested, I'm confident we're going to get a verdict this week (though Christy's making rumblings about an Allen Charge, as are some of the journalists). Though I just made a lunch date for [...]

Our Paparazzi Moment

By: Friday March 2, 2007 6:35 am

  (Photo credit Pachacutec at FDL.com)  Jane says I could never work on a film crew. Apparently, she was notorious on film sets for not being able to wait things out. And since I'm orders of magnitude less able to sit and schmooze and relax in the media room than she, I guess that rules [...]

4:30 on Day Seven

By: Thursday March 1, 2007 1:24 pm

graphic courtesy Monk at Inflatable Dartboard As Jane has warned you, at 4:30, Walton will dismiss the jury (for the day, we think), and give the jurors an instruction. I suspect he may give them tomorrow off, which will bum me out bc I want to go home and I'm not sure I can get [...]

Unmasking Scooter

(Photo credit NYT Photo/Doug Mills via Common Dreams) Update: Some have asked about the juror clothing. They're in jeans again, sorry. One thing we've talked a lot about is the way in which Libby and his wife pose for the pictures. Every time they enter or leave the courthouse, there's a phalanx of photographers waiting [...]

Still Waiting

By: Wednesday February 28, 2007 12:32 pm

Well, I'm glad I spent yesterday talking people into coming into Prettyman Courthouse. Because now I have people to hang out with this afternoon, while I'm waiting. Pach is back (he came, I think, to glue down my FDL sign so no cable networks steal our seat again). And my blogmate Kagro X came in, [...]

The Question, Part Two

By: Wednesday February 28, 2007 7:11 am

Well, you guys have been chatty this morning. I'm on a second thread and we're just getting started. How am I supposed to conserve battery at this clip? For those just tuning in, Jane is dressed in some fancy shoes today, but the jury is dressed in jeans. We're waiting for some kind of sealed [...]
