We returned to court with the same witness, Dr. Forseca who both Nurmi and Martinez questioned. Then juror questions were read. Then they both questioned her some more. Forseca was a hostile witness with Juan Martinez. She refused to answer questions and would randomly turn to the jury and say that Martinez was mischaracterizing her testimony. There were a least a dozen lengthy sidebars. Judge Stephens did nothing about Forseca’s random lectures to the jury. It was a mess. They jury questions were not interesting. There was nothing new covered today. The same emails, texts and questions were repeated over and over and over.
After lunch, all attorney’s, Jodi and Travis’ family were called into chambers. Tanisha came out looking angry and Juror #3 was dismissed. Juror #3 was a female who wrote notes constantly during the entire trial. There is suspicion she is writing a book. No reason was given for her dismissal. We are down to four alternates.
Back to the same old same old. Forseca keeps backtalking Juan Martinez and brings up the slime highway again. And finally we are done with Forseca.
The jury will return for more testimony on Monday. On Thursday, we will have a hearing about the porn or lack thereof on the laptop.
