    Experts Discuss Possible Jury Makeup In Anthony Case
    POSTED: Thursday, March 12, 2009
    UPDATED: 7:25 am EDT March 13, 2009

    Pipitone asked noted defense attorney Cheney Mason and former prosecutor Elizabeth Rahter what kind of person they consider would make a good juror in Anthony's trial.

    "I would want jurors that understand enough about life, that understand the frailties, the weakness of life, that have some empathy, forgiveness and that would not be young people," Mason said.

    "I want people who are able to focus and kind of see through those smoke screens and listen to what evidence is being presented and see what's reasonable and what's unreasonable," Rahter said.

    The process is part legal art, and jury consultant Susan Constantine says, part science.

    Constantine was presented with what is known about the case thus far.

    "A child disappears and the mother doesn't call the police for 30 days and makes up the name of a baby sitter she left her with and changes the story about where the baby was taken from her. Who's more apt to believe that kind of story versus those who say this is ridiculous and the woman's lying?" Pipitone asked.

    Baez: Deputies Missed Evidence In Casey Case
    Friday, March 13, 2009 6:15:20 AM
    <snipped>
    ORLANDO -- Serious accusations were made Thursday during a hearing in the Casey Anthony murder case. Anthony's attorney, Jose Baez said his expert found 17 hairs and several stains that the Orange County Sheriff’s Office never noticed in his client's car.

    "And that is Dr. Lee went in there, inspected the vehicle and he took them to school, and basically showed them many items that they had not found originally," Baez said.

    "If they want to put us through these hoops, we'll go through these notes. But ultimately it's going to hurt them by objecting or not taking the necessary steps because you'll hear me in trial and they'll ask 'did the prosecutor ever ask you for your notes' and guess what? The answer is going to be no," said Defense Counsel Linda Kenney Baden.

    It's not just the defense who is crying foul.
    The State Attorney's Office has filed a motion of their own, claiming a potential conflict of interest if Casey is selling her story to pay off her attorney. The motion will be heard in the coming days

    Casey's New Attorney In Trouble With California Bar
    Posted: 5:56 am EDT March 13, 2009
    Updated: 1:23 pm EDT March 13, 2009
    <snipped>
    ORLANDO, Fla. -- There's another new twist in the case against Casey Anthony. Channel 9 discovered that her newest, high-profile attorney is in some trouble with the California state bar association. Mark Todd Macaluso is accused of writing bad checks from one of his client's accounts.

    Eyewitness News' legal expert said that is one of the most serious allegations an attorney can face. The new attorney was in court with Casey Anthony for her most recent hearing.

    The most recent addition to Casey Anthony's defense team spoke with Anthony briefly in court before the hearing began yesterday. The man from California recently signed a motion asking to be allowed to appear in Florida court as a new attorney on the case alongside Jose Baez.

    California state bar documents reveal, in January, the bar filed disciplinary charges against Macaluso. The charges allege he misappropriated client funds and misused a client's trust account. That type of account is set up for an attorney to hold the clients money. For example, after a settlement, the attorney would use the money in the account to cut a check.
    When Eyewitness News asked Macaluso about the allegations he blamed his staff who didn't handle it appropriately.

    Casey Anthony hearing hints at defense strategy
    The defense in the Casey Anthony case claims fibers in the accused mother's car show it wasn't fully processed
    By Sarah Lundy | Sentinel Staff Writer

    Nothing shocking emerged, but the hearing hinted at the type of questions Anthony's defense team might raise in the future.

    Baez also pointed out that defense expert Dr. Henry Lee found 17 hairs and several stains while inspecting the trunk of Anthony's car. The state allowed Lee to examine the vehicle last fall — months after sheriff's investigators collected evidence from the vehicle.

    "It tells us that the car was not completely processed at the time it was allegedly processed by law enforcement," Linda Kenney Baden, one of Anthony's attorneys, said after the hearing.
    Forensic issues such as these will come up at trial, the attorneys promise.

    Strickland told the defense to ask the labs for the evidence-gathering techniques before filing any motion.
    Baden had argued that the FBI and others never gave out that kind of information to private attorneys but would follow the judge's instructions.

    "We want all our motions granted," Baez said after the hearing. "If they are not, we will continue fighting step by step."

    Local Attorney Looks Ahead To Anthony Trial
    Nejame Believes Anthony Team Will Look For Liberals
    POSTED: 7:30 am EDT March 13, 2009
    UPDATED: 8:09 am EDT March 13, 2009
    <snipped>
    Lawyers on both sides of the Casey Anthony case skirmished over motions at a hearing in court on Thursday, but the big fight will be at the murder trial itself.
    The first part of the trial could be the most critical, which is when a jury will be picked. Noted defense attorney Mark Nejame has been picking juries for 28 years.
    "You have drama and passion almost unparalleled," he said.

    Nejame said he thinks Casey's team will look for a juror who is liberal and thinks out of the box.
    "Someone who is open to other alternatives social services," he said. "Somebody who has had a lot of real-life experiences."

    Nejame said the prosecution wants the opposite -- a conservative, someone who thinks in a straight line -- like an engineer who might latch onto the forensic evidence.
    "Generally a prosecution is going to look for somebody who is more law enforcement-oriented or victim-oriented and someone appalled about the accusations," Nejame said.
    He also said that the prosecution will be very interested in women with children.

    Haleigh Cummings' dad rails against media on trip to New York; Jose Baez says Casey Anthony "holding up as best she can"
    posted by halboedeker on Mar 13, 2009 9:30:04 AM
    <snipped>
    Central Florida crime stories received national attention Friday morning: the Haleigh Cummings case was on NBC's "Today," the Casey Anthony case was on CBS' "Early Show."

    On "The Early Show," Jose Baez, attorney for Anthony, bemoaned "a lot of wild speculation" in the media coverage. He was in Orlando and didn't get a trip to New York.
    "Are you setting the stage for an evidence-tampering defense"? anchor Maggie Rodriguez asked Baez.

    "No, your know, as far as what our defense is, we've kept that very close to the vest," Baez said. "We don't want to try this case in the media."
    Rodriguez asked about Casey's frame of mind. Casey Anthony is charged with daughter Caylee's murder.
    "I think she's holding up as best she can. She's trying to stay strong," Baez said.

    Deputy Faces Deposition In Anthony Case
    Cain Called To Investigate Suspicious Bag
    POSTED: 9:06 am EDT March 13, 2009
    UPDATED: 5:53 pm EDT March 13, 2009
    <snipped>
    A defense team questioned an Orange County sheriff's deputy who may have missed a chance to find Caylee Anthony's remains.

    The deposition lasted for more than three hours at the State Attorney's Office in Orlando. It was held in private, and attorney Jose Baez said he is not done with his questions.

    Cain's account could help Anthony's defense.
    "I think he's an important witness, so everyone should stay tuned, I guess," Anthony's lead attorney, Jose Baez, said on Thursday following a court hearing.

    If Baez can prove that Caylee's remains were not in the wooded area when Cain visited in August, then he may be able to show that his client could not have placed her daughter's body there. At that time, Anthony was either in jail or being electronically monitored.

    Judge Stan Strickland appeared to lose patience with the defense team and he ended up not giving them anything they wanted at the hearing

    Baez Deposes Orange County Sheriff's Deputy

    http://www.cfnews13.com/News/Local/2...asey_case.html

    Casey Anthony's defense attorneys questioned Deputy Richard Cain for three hours.
    Cain was called in August 2008 about a suspicious bag Roy Kronk, a meter reader, said he saw in the woods where the 2-year-old's remains were later found.
    However, Kronk said Cain would not go into the woods to check it out, and was rude to him. *snipped*

    Casey Anthony case: Jose Baez grills deputy in "critical" deposition
    posted by halboedeker on Mar 13, 2009 5:22:00 PM
    <snipped>
    How important to Casey Anthony's defense was the deposition today of an Orange County sheriff's deputy?
    "His testimony is critical," defense attorney Jose Baez said today before questioning Deputy Richard Cain. Meter reader Roy Kronk in August pointed Cain to the area where Caylee Anthony's remains would be found in December. Cain earlier dismissed Kronk's discovery as just trash. Casey Anthony is charged with her daughter's murder.

    At 5 p.m., WESH-Channel 2's Bob Kealing reported that Cain was "grilled by Jose Baez and Casey's defense team for about three and a half hours."
    In various reports, Baez said he couldn't comment a lot about the deposition because it wasn't done.

    Cain did not make an obvious entrance, Kealing said. "On this day, [he] might as well have been the Invisible Man," Kealing added. Cain has managed to avoid the media, WKMG-Channel 6's Mike DeForest said.

    Stations reported that Todd Macaluso, a new attorney for Anthony, could face disciplinary action from the California Bar after being accused of writing $100,000 in bad checks. Macaluso says there was an accounting error by his office staff while he was away for a death in the family, WKMG said.

    WFTV anchor Bob Opsahl said Macaluso was "changing his story after a Channel 9 report." The station reported that he was accused of writing the bad checks, yet he didn't disclose that information when he filed for permission to practice law in Florida. "After our report, he filed new paper work today admitting it," Opsahl said.
    The judge will decide whether Macaluso can be involved in the Anthony case, WESH's Dave McDaniel reported.

    Stop leaking news to media, Orange sheriff says

    Casey Anthony case: Stop leaking news to media, Orange sheriff says
    Henry Pierson Curtis | Sentinel Staff Writer
    March 14, 2009

    The days of "sources said" in the Casey Anthony case may be numbered.

    Orange County sheriff's personnel are being told, firmly, to stop leaks to the media.

    National fascination with Caylee's death is partly to blame.

    "Don't be naive," Demings tells his staff. "We have reporters using and doing everything they can to get the story."
