My friend Cat tells me that Judge Perry does not like cameras in the courtroom and sees them as a hindrance to justice.
I have been wondering what tactical advantage JB or CM could possibly have by getting rid of Strickland, when there was every indication that whoever they got would be stricter. Perhaps they guessed it would have to be Judge Perry.
And perhaps they were willing to go along with all the no-nonsense if it kept their client out of the cameras. This girl doesn't ever need to testify to make herself look bad. She does not present a sympathetic appearance in her many court appearances and they may not want her body language hyperanalyzed any longer. I cannot imagine that Perry will somehow reverse any rulings so I am still perplexed at why CM would think this was a good strategy. Unless it was simply to get her out of the public eye.
