DEPOSITION RELEASED: Billy Richardson
Thanks been wanting to read this for myself.
Lot's to read in both this depo & TU's for all of us!
Your Welcome...I've been waiting for them too! :wink:
Just as I always suspected: Casey was taken to the general waiting area of the clinic, whereupon the medical personnel all "ran" back to their offices, that they "had the foresight to see this was coming and got out of the way," according to Dep. Richardson.
No medical treatment, no medical personnel even present, ergo no HIPAA violations.
If the SA wants to use this videotape(NO audio, therefore Richardson's testimony would be critical re: what Casey said,) it will be able to do so.
Defense will not be able to put together a winning motion to quash it. Heck, Casey even said to Richardson, when he advised her they were going to the medical facility "[g]ood, because there's something going on and I want to know about it." So she'd been listening to the radio and WANTED to go watch the news on the TV in the clinic.
Thanks Chezhire for your wealth of knowledge that you share with us! :wink:
Same here, but I'm not sure I recognize it from how it has been portrayed by the defense.
Isn't it funny how the defense always sees thangs in-a-backwards-kind-of-way!
Exactly! That is why I just posted this on the thread
"Was Defendant Denied Her Right to Counsel?"
Disclaimer - I haven't read the entire thread nor participated in the poll.
My problem here is we have not yet seen or heard these depositions that JB has taken. So far, we are only hearing his side of what the 2 Jail workers have said. Considering the source, I'll wait for these documents to be made public. I didn't have to wait very long.
JB embellished and twisted once again!
No doubt. We've all posted in great detail for months now here at WS that we believed there were no HIPAA violations, see here: http://www.websleuths.com/forums/showthread.php?p=3384580&highlight=hipaa#post3384580.
I think Baez is afraid he is caught on audio tape somewhere. Did anyone notice how he tried to claim the intercom was on? The intercoms in jails usually require the pushing of a button to talk. But he claimed it was "clicking" the entire time he was in there. Could it have been someone tryingto tell him to keep his hands off his client?
What I am getting a big kick out of is the fact that this depo appears to be videoconferenced (as LKB notices that Richardson is writing something but cannot see clearly what it is) and that while Linda Drane Burdick and JB appear to be present, it is LKB who is clearly conducting the interview.
There has been a lot of mention made that LKB was only brought on to refute the forensics in the case. How embarrassing it must be to JB to have to sit in a room with the SA and listen to a videoconference (which are not inexpensive) in which his out-of-town forensic specialist attorney is deposing an officer in the jail regarding a matter involving the simple release of a videotape because clearly he appears to be unable or unwilling to conduct such an interview himself.
Maybe this is not what is actually going on, but if I'm getting a big kick out of it, I can imagine what Kathi B must be thinking. "What law school did YOU attend, Mr. Baez?"
For the legal eagles :blowkiss:
What about them pushing the fact that the client was denied proper medical care (getting Sgt. to admit she was looking distressed and no one was around to help her) - do they have any chance of making a legitimate deal out of this, or is that really just smoke and mirrors, trying to get the jurors sympathetic to KC? Then again, I'm not sure it was lack of "proper medical care" as she ended up being just fine; I hope you know what I mean. More like they are trying to claim they allowed this poor gal to be under duress when it wasn't necessary.
Man I be so lost----I thought he was claimin that the messed with her right of privacy during a med. call.
I love it.
LKB "Did they (medical staff) come back into the waiting room to attend to her tearing?"
So she is trying to say that because medical staff did not immediately return to take care of possible hyperventilation, nausea and CRYING, that they were denying KC medical attention? LKB thinks that not handing someone a kleenex is denying medical attention???
I'm lost too! I think that WAS their primary issue we've heard about, but it seemed like much of the focus of the depo was on whether anyone was around and giving her medical treatment or observation for the 30-45 minutes she was there. I'm worried they're going to play that up, especially when there was wording that the medical staff "ran" away when he was bringing KC around.
I'm just not liking where she was trying to lead Richardson....
LOL Go figue
Even if HIPAA criteria had applied in this case (like a regular doctor's office and not a prison which may not even strictly qualify under HIPAA parameters), I'm not sure any of it would have applied to behavior a patient exhibits in a waiting room. The fact that no medical personnel entered the room to treat her means that nothing that could remotely resemble medical attention was given and therefore no privacy right was violated, if I understand correctly.
The fact that she was not treated for a half-hour or so for minor complaints such as nausea, also do not constitute denying her treatment, in that she was eventually seen and treated. Most patients in an ER wait at least that amount of time for much more serious issues.
And, as Chezire so succinctly pointed out, the fact that she was anxious to know what was going on and willingly went to the medical facility to be observed while she was watching TV, means she had no qualms about that either.
:clown: <- JoseB
JoseB and Casey are a match made in heaven, No doubt! Too bad she doesn't realize yet that he's a bigger (though not much better, IMO) con artist then she is!
They remind me of Cindy and George in some big ways
No----she is saying "TEARING"---there weren't any tears----watch fer da trick questions. But she is gittin on record that he "swore" KC was cryin.
