    Who won in court today? 5/31/2011

    Thought this would be a good thread to start for those of us who can't watch the trial through out the day, but wants to have a place for a quick 1 minute recap. For those that could listen, which side won today in court SA or DT, neither? and why? A poll would be nice, for a quick 30 second recap, but I don't know how to do one.

    SA won today, I hated Jb asking CA if she thought CAylee was still alive.

    Also this was the first time Jurors got to hear KC, what an impression she made on the 911 call, and the jail house call.

    I voted SA. Here are a couple of the big things I remember that I thought weighed in the SA's favor:

    -The 911 calls & CA's reaction hearing them again.

    -The potential admittance (to be decided first thing tomorrow) of Casey's 6 prior felonies due to JB's cross-x of CA.

    Today was a victory for Caylee !

    Finally ... the Anthony Family has come together and is facing the "reality" of what happened to their granddaughter, as well as accepting the "unpleasant" facts about their daughter.

    Yes, the SA won the day ... and it was for Justice for Caylee !!

    I voted neither. I believed the state scored big with the 911 tape until CA backtracked about the dead body smell. I do think the jailhouse tape where ICA says everyone is only worried about Caylee was a big score for the state.
    The defense scored by getting CA to backtrack on the smell and about the ladder. So I consider it a draw leaning toward the defense. JMHO

    Hands down the SA. I sat here since 6 AM (except for my shower) and listened to every word. JB could learn a lesson or 2 from LDB. She is clear, concise, and methodical.

    JB, OTOH, is all over the bloody map. Poor Cindy going "huh", "wha"? He's trying to confuse the witnesses, but all he seems to be doing is making himself look the fool (I hope that's not too harsh).

    Yes, we know we couldn't hear GA on the 911 tape. What does that have to do with anything? Does that mean because he wasn't screaming, he wasn't concerned? Oh, that's right, he already knew all about it. OFGS.

    It was overall a sad and frustrating day - but I give kudos to the State. They have the jury wrapped around their little fingers

    MOO

    Hi Im from the UK and up until a few weeks ago hadnt followed this case. I stumbled on it in the news on CNN (Its not making news in the UK) and have since followed the trial.

    I imagined myself as a juror and disregarded anything I had read but WOW Its so hard to watch Casey remaining emotionless and her mother at breaking point

    Seeing Cindy break was like watching my grandmother break - I see the look of PURE love and adoration for her grandbaby and I'm sure many of you will recognise that look from your own grandparents.

    Such a sad case and my heart really does break for Cindy, George and family

    Im not a believer in the death sentence but feel Casey should be locked up forever with no priviledges

    I think the State won today - the defence seemed very petty and made no valid points

    What's the deal on that? What did JB say that might allow the 6 priors in?
    I really did listen today but I got so mad at JB at one point I had to walk away because I was afraid of getting banned if my fingers continued to type away. I can't imagine what those jurors think of JB.
    MOO.

    Hi Buckeye!

    I hear ya, and I thought the same thing. But then I have to keep in the back of my mind that Cindy HAS to keep to her 2008 depos or risk impeachment. She has always said "it smells like there's been a dead body in the dam car" to get the police there quicker. She did make some statements that I hadn't heard before (and trust me, I've heard and read just about every interview she's had), and that was the rotting flesh. Now rotting flesh on a live person, from what I understand, is not the same as a decomposing body (but I'm sure quite smelly just the same).

    And I don't recall her backtracking on the ladder. Maybe I was playing with the cats too much but I thought she told Polisano that on June 16th or 17th:

    She said that it was weird that her pool ladder was up against the pool because she never did that,” Polisano said. “She always made sure, because of the baby, that it wouldn’t be near the pool. And that she thought kids must be breaking into her yard and swimming in her pool.”

    We know understand the back gate to be open too.

    So I'm confident the defense will call her co-workers to testify this information to justify the drowning theory.

    Best,

    Mel

    I don't totally have a handle on it. It's definitely a legal expert thing! But as far as I could follow, because JB had asked the questions of CA about the paternity of Caylee, that opens the door for Casey's felonies to come in as evidence. It's something regarding testimony & hearsay & the defendant, but that's all I got. But apparently the case that made the rule was ruled on by JP, and upheld by the Florida Supreme Court.

    I voted the State. Jose Baez came across as more of a paralegal than having had 3 years trial "experience". I couldn't believe he didn't have Amy H's file with him today, it's not like the defense didnt know she was coming up. Very inexperienced, and ineffective with what I felt like his jumping all over the place. He never seems like he has what I would call an "outline" of questions to follow in my opinion. I think Judge Perry will stick to the warning he gave to both sides that he's not playing and will make every attempt to get this trial complete in a timely manner for the jury's sake. Having said that, I think it was a blessing for the defense that the State questioned Amy H. as long as they did and as such, that the jury will never know that Baez was not prepared, because Perry did not have to let them out early, (not that he would have said anything, but who knows what they might have questioned as to why they were being let out early.)

    As far as Cindy A's testimony, I was on the edge of my seat the entire time, and would bet my bottom dollar the jury was too. My heart broke for her today. I felt that she was a VERY compelling witness, and the fact that Casey was so stoic probably did not help her in the jurors eyes. My two cents.

    BTW.... glad to have found y'all.
