    We need some fireworks to start off this thread to celebrate Judge Stephens ruling to dismiss the DP and smackdown the defense:
    This is the year to locate Mark Dribin http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...ht=Mark+Dribin NamUs MP#876 and Ilene Misheloff http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...lene+Misheloff NamUs MP#6410 and bring them home to their families!

    Parents watch your children. Free-range parenting leads to more child victims.

    I believe in closure, not forgiveness. I'm also unapologetically judgemental.

    I am so glad Travis's family can take this break knowing their brother has been vindicated of the accusations of porn.

    AZL, how does it work at the appellate level for the DT now? Now we're into more of the traditional appeal situation vs special actions. Say KN and JW want to take these 17 smackdowns and write up for each one how they think the judge was off her rocker and they should overrule her. How does it work?
    - Do they file 17 different appeals? Do they file 1 with everything? Or do they pick a few that they think they have the best shot at?
    - Does each appeal consist of only some relatively small amount of paperwork and copies of transcripts and exhibits?
    - Do they also need to cite relevant settled case law to back their argument up?
    - Ignoring stays, can the COA just refuse to hear the appeal, letting the lower court ruling stand, or do they have to issue more than that in each case?
    - If there are to be oral arguments, I presume they have to be short and to the point, like the earlier ones. (Those were all short, but not necessarily all to the point haha.)
    - What is the COA's take going in? Is their attitude along the lines of "We've got what you sent and we've read the judge's decision. You have 15 minutes to convince us that her logic was flawed."

    Thanks - you can see what I'm getting at. It seems like the same sorts of things that a trial like this encourages from the defense: obfuscation, inept/lying witnesses, arguments all over the map/contradictory, time-wasting, interrupting the other party endlessly, etc. all are exactly the wrong approach to use on appeal. I suppose that's why there are people like you who specialize in appeals - you don't have to change gears for appeals since you operate in the right gear already. It might be a struggle for you to handle a normal case in a regular court for similar reasons - it's just a different way of operating.

    Oh no no no. Far from it. I just have a severe case of know-it-all-itis.

    If you want to discuss the judge and her decision, fine. Let's not start bashing her. The rules apply to JSS as well as anyone else we are discussing on this thread. Discuss how she handles the case is okay but snarky remarks stop here. New thread. Let's move on.

    I’m elated that all the DT’s motions were denied but I’m also upset about part of the court’s rulings. Specifically, the two State motions which this judge denied with NO explanation. I want to know WHY she denied them. IIRC, these motions were in reference to the BN’s failure to give Juan a copy of the disc he worked on. BN’s testiphony was based on this disc and the magical appearance of the incinerator which was not even in existence at that time. I want to know who installed the incinerator and who was behind this. After failing several times to provide a copy of the disc, Juan filed a motion for sanctions. Why was the motion denied????

    Could you give us an example of bashing and/or let us know its definition? If someone backs up their argument with examples or has a negative opinion, is that bashing? In other words, what the heck is bashing?

    I noticed in the latest transcripts that JM often said, "Leading" and JSS answered, "Overruled" with an occasional "Sustained" thrown in. Why can't most objections be quickly handled this way, rather than the nonstop, prolonged "proaches"? These constant DT interruptions of the prosecution, this time and last, is what I fault JSS for most, not her motion responses.

    O/T, I think JSS must be a poker player or a Scorpio. j/k
