    I don't know anything more about Professor Lyon than what has been posted here, but she's GOT to be easier to take than LKB. I wonder how likely it is that Professor Lyon is coming on board the defense team pro bono, for free?

    I have a feeling we are in for a change with the way this case is being tried. THere is no way that a serious lawyer will continue the way Baez has. This is gonna get interesting.

    Still wondering how all of this is being paid for as we all know Casey was nothing more than a pauper alledgedly stealing from AH and others before all this came down. She hasn't worked in I believe 2yrs. Lawyers do not just do this kind of work out of the goodness of there hearts. This kind of defense cost a lot of money. Remember OJ defense team put him close to the bankruptcy court. (not sure if this belongs here if not sorry and remove if necessary)

    I get the feeling that most of these attorney's and defense experts are in it for the notoriety, that in itself is worth big $$$ on down the road, books, speaking engagement's, etc...

    ITA, those were my thoughts when I first read the article this morning. CK did work for a bit, she was the shot girl manager. Maybe that is where she made her fortune

    This is going to be a whole new ballgame for KC and JB, I can't wait to see how this all plays out. Clash of the Titians is my opinion.

    It truly is mind-boggling, especially since the chances of you or me getting that kind of help in a legal defense are slim to nothing. What makes Casey different? Frankly, none of it matters to me because what I want for Casey is LWOP --- I never did care about having her sentenced to death. To me, LWOP is worse than death.
