    One of White's first orders of business Monday was to schedule a court date for Wednesday. He is expected to hear several motions, including a state request to seal discovery. Brodsky said he would oppose any move to keep evidence under wraps.
    "We think this case has been so much in the media, it's like closing the barn door after the cows are gone," he said. "And we think it's unfair to the defense. We wanted everything as transparent as possible

    Of course lets keep evidence under wraps....that way a jury can't see it and your client can walk! This guy is a piece of work.

    Drew Peterson's case will be back in court for a hearing before the third judge in less than a month.

    Will County Circuit Court Judge Stephen White is scheduled to hear arguments today on a prosecution motion to seal discovery findings, among other issues.

    Eh? Ok I mis-read that obviously, thank you Paintr, my apologies. I wonder what the purpose would be into keeping their evidence under wraps. In the JBR case the defense really ruined everything by getting access to all sorts of stuff...maybe they pros want it under wraps for the same reason.

    They want to prevent both sides from leaking the evidence to the public, not to prevent the defense from seeing it. That's to prevent from predjudicing the potential jury pool in order to insure a fair trial.

    ...and to prevent witnesses from getting harassed by the media.

    Prosecutors will ask Will County Judge Stephen White to seal all discovery filings. The defense is expected to object. Judge White got the Peterson case Monday. His lawyers sought a replacement after the previous judge refused to reduce Peterson's bail of $20 million.


    I wonder if the defense will ask Judge White to rule on a bond reduction?

    Sigh. Another money case, another "media made it impossible for a fair trial" case, just sigh. Just seal the evidence until trial. Sigh....

    Paintr, your signature quote by Will Rogers covers it all.

    Unless I have included a link, it is my opinion and only my opinion that I am expressing.
