Don't really know 'where' to post this, but a few people were asking during testimony - how many 'sidebars' - soooo, I took the time and went back, yes I did :crazy: and here's my count:

5/24 Day One: 6 (all of these occurred during JB's questioning of GA; a few of them HHJP teaching Law 101 to JB!) :floorlaugh: also QUITE a few "Objection", "Sustained" - at least 16 to 18!!

5/25 Day Two: 9

5/26 Day Three: 15 (per Wise Old Owl, so I didn't count them!)

5/27 Day Four: 7

5/28 Day Five: 4

Total first week: 41

Editted to add: I will continue to count them...

Insight into jurors per Steve Helling via Twitter (on June 2, 2011):

1)mwf, 60s, leaned toward Melich, often looks to prosecutor Burdick for reaction. Didn't seem to like George.

3) (made no comment on this one)

2) MBM, 30s, hardly ever reacts to anything. 3) SWF, 32, looks over at Casey frequently. Watched her during Cindy testimony.

4) SBF, 40s. Doesn't want to judge. Pays close attention to Baez. Often stony faced, but did shake her head when hearing lies and swears.

5) DWF, late 50s, 3 kids, long gray hair, glasses - no reaction.

6) 33yo MWM, 2 kids, slouches, often seems to be dozing, no other reaction.

7) DWF, no kids, lawyer's daughter. Pays close attention to both sides, swivels her chair to watch the witnesses. Arms folded always.

8) MWF, 50s, dad was cop. Never reacts.

9) SWM, 53, retired logger, thin, gray hair, glasses. very attentive, takes lots of notes.

10) SWM, 57, takes many notes, seldom reacts facially.

11) SWM, handsome, PE teacher, very engaged. Leans forward for defense. Fascinated.

12) MWF, 60s, 2 kids, 1 grandkid. Looked sympathetic to Cindy, often looks at Casey or at the prosecution for reaction when defense speaks.

by cfnews13casey via twitter at 11:12 AM

The jury is watching this tape very closely. In my (untrained, speculative) opinion, this shot by the prosecution has hit its target.
by stevehelling via twitter at 11:13 AM

Juror 11 watches #CaseyAnthony he isn't leaning forward anymore. Now sitting back. -fell
by cfnews13casey via twitter at 10:16 AM

Look around 16 just closed his eyes and shook his head was Caseys bible quote
by bobkealing via twitter at 10:17 AM

During nearly 5 hours of video this is the first time (I've seen) juror 4 (black woman) has looked at #CaseyAnthony it lasted just a second.
by cfnews13casey via twitter at 11:23 AM this is re: KC: the media is obscene. If people don't have anything nice to say, they should shut up. All I want is my "kid" back.

#CaseyAnthony Juror 13 woman in back row also smirked at Casey's comment of wanting baby back.
by bobkealing via twitter at 11:25 AM

Mistrial motions denied:

#1 – 5/27/11: Attempted character assassination of defendant…

#2 – 6/2/11: Mis-statement of facts…” request a mistrial because of the statements heard during the video especially about the defendants council...including that her council may withhold evidence and destroy evidence. The jury heard and it ruins credibility...other than filing motions and renewing objections that is all we can do. There are future videos that have further slanders against the defnese's council...other legal and um also misstakments of law and fact surrounding the legal representation of Miss Anthony and the visitors in these tapes. I understand part of what the State of FL is doing how ever they should be relvant they should not be prejudicial where you have statements that may confused the jury as to what the law may be and issues related to the defendants council. On those grounds we ask for a mistrial the motion as it relates to these tapes it went exclusively to the Anthony's being agents of the state. He did not state which parts are prohibitive, he did not file in a timely fashion.” Per Baez. Didn’t like Lee’s comments about Baez re jailhouse video of 7/25/08 w/KC.

#3 – 6/14/11: Video of animation with duct tape, Heart Sticker – speculation, and issue of remorse regarding getting tattoo.
