    Casey may represent herself at trial.

    Wftv reporting that Casey may represent herself ... and get taxpayer monies to do so ... what are your thoughts on this?

    Maybe that's why she started dressing up today. I can see the Prosecutors now. You honor, defense counsel and the truth are strangers...
    My hero....

    This is truly an awful day! Sweet darling Caylee you truly are in a better place. Only wish all of us could show you our love...

    How does that old saying go? Something about a man who acts as his own attorney has a fool for a client? 'Nuff said.
    However, I am pissed that my tax dollars continue to be wasted in this circus

    Why is it that I feel the need to keep my tin foil beanie on at all times these days? Am I the crazy one? Or the normal one?

    Thank you everyone for being patient with me until I received some sort of clarification. Muzikman supplied me with a link regarding this information.

    The board has been running very slow making it difficult to get back to everyone in a timely manner. Thanks again for all your patience.

    If Casey represents herself at trial, will she still be able to ask for a retrial--due to an inadequate defense, when she loses?

    Everyone has the right to pro se representation ... so yes Casey can self-represent ... all she has to do is file a motion with the court with her intent and acknowledgment that she is waiving her right to counsel ... the courts generally use the same standards as they do for determining a person is fit and competent to stand trial to determine if they are fit and competent to represent themselves at trial.

    KC's self-representation with only JB's advisement is the height (and perfect marriage) of his arrogance, and her narcissism. In any case she couldn't be found both "fit and competent to represent herself," and NGBRI. JMO

    And since she would be acting on behalf of herself as lead council, she could probably fill the second chair with Jose. Aww.

    I think she would announce this to bring the circle of attention right back to her. It's a ridicules attempt and I doubt any attorney would advise her that this is a wise move. This is a real-life murder trial that is upcoming, not an episode of Law and Order. She's childish and naive (along with her other disorders) to even make such a statement.
