    Motion In Limine To Exclude Mental Health Experts

    http://www.cfnews13.com/static/artic...ealth-0412.pdf

    Well, well, it appears that neither shrink diagnosed KC with any recognized mental health disorders and are basing their opinions solely on statements KC made to them. From a legal standpoint, I can't see how the doctors' testimony would ever be admissible. KC's statements are hearsay (unless she testifies before they do and we know that ain't happening). It also appears that the defense believes the opinions are admissible under the "state of mind" exception to the hearsay rule to explain her actions after Caylee went missing. But that's an improper use of the exception and I doubt it will fly with JP. It would also appear that the DT is trying to get some sort of character evidence admitted improperly so even if KC testified I can't see how the doctors' opinions would be admissible. Just glad they're not using PTSD because that had me screaming angry!! Now, I'm wondering if the motion will be argued in open court on Friday since it's obvious the lawyers were instructed not to mention any specifics just yet.

    The DT is going to use anything and everything to prevent ICA from being judged a murderer by the jury. I would even dare to say "you ain't seen nothin' yet" when it comes to the DT and the Audacious Anthony liaison formed by CA-GA.

    Prosecutors: Casey’s Defense Strategy Not Legal
    Posted: 11:13 pm EDT April 12, 2011


    http://www.wftv.com/news/27525942/detail.html
    Prosecutors in the case against Casey Anthony say her lawyers want to use a defense strategy that’s not legal. The defense wants to tell Casey's side of the story, through two mental health experts, who would testify about Casey's state of mind. But prosecutors say Casey would have to take the witness stand before that could happen

    The Florida Bar summed up the problem regarding Mr. Baez.
    "His overall behavior, they wrote, showed "a total lack of respect for the rights of others and a total lack of respect for the legal system, which is absolutely inconsistent with the character and fitness qualities required of those seeking to be afforded the highest position of trust and confidence recognized by our system of law."

    Prosecutors: Casey’s Defense Strategy Not Legal

    "Prosecutors in the case against Casey Anthony say her lawyers want to use a defense strategy that’s not legal. The defense wants to tell Casey's side of the story, through two mental health experts, who would testify about Casey's state of mind. But prosecutors say Casey would have to take the witness stand before that could happen. According to prosecutors, the new defense experts are basing their opinions only on what Casey has told them. So even if she were to take the witness stand, their opinions still might not be admissible. Last month, the defense listed two new mental health experts it wants to call to testify about Casey Anthony's state of mind. The judge hasn't decided whether to allow it. Prosecutors have the experts' reports, and have started to question them under oath, but late Tuesday the prosecution filed a motion asking the judge to bar all discussion of their possible testimony during the trial unless Casey takes the stand in her own defense."

    Is this what that motion is all about? She's not taking the stand IMO so the DT can forget about getting these mental health experts "opinion" admitted.

    WOW. Thank you, this is fascinating. So Casey is just a normal,thieving, lying, coldhearted, spiteful young lady, no 'mental health disorders' to be found. Sounds accurate to me.

    I like pondering what these two witnesses want to testify about...the defense is so funny...they want to come up with great reasons for KC's ugly coping, they want to blame George, they want us all to understand how truly lovely KC is. HA HA HA.

    I love thinking back on Judge Strickland saying something along the lines of KC's psych evaluation being "indescribable" (or similar words). I would love to read that one.

    I know!!! What a surprise! I've never believed that KC suffered from any personality disorders or mental health conditions. Working in the justice system for 30+ years, I learned a long time ago that some people are just bad.

    Or maybe Casey didn't like the sound of deviant sociopath. Well, I guess Jose will have to do a hasty re-write of that first minute of his opening statements.

    The State could phone theirs in.

    27 days from Jury selection. All the shrinks and mock juries in the world won't get this girl off. She was the last person with Caylee, 31 days on the razzle, dead body in her car, how many non-existant people are we up to?
    And who could count the lies?

    I couldn't figure this out. These non-experts were supposed to testify as to her "state of mind" but there is nothing wrong with her. So her state of mind was that she was completely normal when partying up after her daughter either died or was kidnapped? How does that help them?

    So they are being disingenuous and really just want to have her testimony given by allowing her shrinks to talk about it? Do I have that right??

    Has the defense filed a response to the State's motion for examination? ( I can't believe how much law procedure I know now that I didn't last year)

    I guess Baez is trying his best to get his client acquitted without her ever taking the stand...

    I also believe, ICA would not allow any mental health examination so the best he could do is offer up her statements to police and find that ace in the hole...it won't fly...JA will shut it down, before it begins...JMHO

    Justice for Caylee

    BBM. I was entertaining the theory that ICA said she would talk to them AS LONG AS they said there is nothing wrong with her. I bet she's been fuming for 2 1/2 years about being called "bizarre" (although she didn't blink when HHJS said that), a sociopath, etc.

    IMO Casey would LIE during any mental health evaluation, so in my mind it's worthless. Another thing DT has dreamed up to distract (the jury) from the truth of what happened. JMO

    Calling her "bizarre" is being too kind, and is definately a huge understatement.
    I'm sure she's kept abreast of all the other names the public has for her.
    She's possibly the most hated woman in the country. (And I use the term "woman" loosely.)

    I don't think KC cares what anyone calls her as long as she is in the spotlight.
