Second verse, same as the first. So it’s day 38 in the Jodi Arias Trial. Yeah, I know I said that yesterday, but I was just kidding then. Or confused. Because really, who can keep count at this point. Meanwhile, I finally found out what the hearing this morning is actually about. I read the document and basically the media is asking for the records of the defense counsels expert witness billing. The defense says making this information public will give the prosecution insight to their defense strategy by letting them know when and for how long each expert was interviewed and who was selected for the stand. That makes more sense than the lawyers asking for a TPO. I have no problem with that being sealed until after the penalty phase of the trial. It seems in the court documents that the primary concern of the defense is disclosing detailed information about their plan for the penalty phase, should such a phase occur.
Anyway, the domestic violence expert is back on the stand today, and frankly we have finally reached my limit. I do not need to sit through hours of community college level lectures about domestic violence. That’s all I am going to say about that. I’ll tune in when Juan does his cross.
The trial is delayed until 1:45 EST today due to the hearing. We will as always be recapping and commenting here. I will be relying on comments here to know when it is safe to tune back in, so thanks to all the commenters!
