3. Shouldn't his attorney have filed a motion to prevent the media from appearing BEFORE the deposition ?

TIA I'm disheartened at what the As are getting away with...
1. I bet they will be-- I have no info but I can't imagine they won't.
2. Yes I think this would be contempt-- it's my understanding these depositions are occurring before a judge-- so each attorney can object to specific questions and the judge will rule on each objection and either sustain Luka's objection (Lee doesn't have to answer) or overrule the objection (Lee does have to answer and a refusal would be contempt of court, IMO)
3. Shouldn't his attorney have filed a motion to prevent the media from appearing BEFORE the deposition ?
IMO, YES DEFINITELY.

I don't understand why this is taking the shape it is. It's all very strange.
IMO -- and like you pointed out-- they should have already had the hearing about media presence at the depo before the depo is scheduled to occur.

I think the Judge should bar the media from being present during the depo. The depo will be taped and then submitted as discovery. If there are reasons to seal or keep private certain aspects of the depo, the deponent's atty can file a motion to seal those parts of the depo or the entire tape. The judge will consider the motion and rule accordingly.

The appropriate segments (or even the whole thing) can then be released to the public like everything else. I do think it makes sense to put a barrier between instant media broadcast and the deposition process itself. The problem is, IMO, that the A's lawyers failed to file the correct motions at the correct time and now everything is happening backwards and inside out. I remember John Morgan even telling the A attorneys to file this motion for protective order over a month ago on Nancy Grace-- he like spoon-fed it to them??? STRANGE!

I just don't understand this at all!!
It's my understanding that media presence during depositions in FL = standard and routine procedure. Correct??

The only way Luka can change that standard and routine procedure is by successfully filing a motion to change the standard procedure.

This is like saying you're only going to answer questions if you feel the chair is comfortable when you sit down to give your deposition. If it's uncomfortable then you're just going to have to leave-- sorry! SO WEIRD.

I think he is going to walk through the door and right back out.
I hope he proves me wrong. I still want so badly for there to be one person in this family who's sole purpose is to find Justice for Caylee. This is a start.
Regardless of how his attorney feels, he is still in control over this. He can choose to do this even if his attorney objects.

LOL! Very good!


Can the senior A's be present for Lee's deposition? It is open to the public, after all.

I cannot find a working link to the entire Bond Hearing testimony of Cindy and Lee, but I heard them when they were released, and both of them stated under oath, that they have known about the babysitter, Zanny, for about two years. If they say something different in the depositions, it will be perjury in one way or another.

Does anyone have a link to the entire Bond Hearing testimony?
I sure hope Zenaida's attorneys have it.

Do you think Morgan decided to call Lee's bluff and quietly asked the media to stay away ?

snipped from myfoxorlando 7:20 am
But Lee Anthony's attorney, Thomas Luka, said his client will not answer questions with the media present.

"My first step is to ask plaintiff council to ask the media to leave the deposition room,” Luka said. “If plaintiff council refuses to do so, I will immediately file with him a copy of a protective order then file that with the Clerk of Courts and Judge Rodriguez,” he added.

The Orlando Sentinel is saying the reporters were moved to the lobby and the deposition is going on now. Sorry, I can't get link to work. LOL!

I can't find anything on any of the other news sites either

The Twitters above aren't showing anything either

HLN is reporting on it sporadically but nothing live so far.
