    DePaul law clinics give students an education in real time
    $1 million endowment will aid their dogged pursuit of justice


    http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/education/ct-x-depaul-law-clinics-20100714,0,7534412.story

    snipped:

    Donor Jack Martin, a DePaul law grad, said the clinics give students hands-on experience while also providing legal representation to people in need. With his $1 million gift, Martin says he hopes the legal clinics will continue to "actually do some good for people."

    Law school officials have not decided exactly how the money will be spent. Lyon said the donation ultimately will enable the school to serve more clients and teach more students, whether through opening a new clinic, investing in the existing clinics or hiring more professors.

    UPDATED: Casey Anthony: Judge rules state can use 911 calls during trial
    The 911 calls from Casey Anthony's mother, Cindy Anthony, were the topic of a more than three-hour hearing now under way before Chief Circuit Judge Belvin Perry.

    5:23 p.m. EDT, July 15, 2010
    <snipped>
    For the first time in more than a year, the entire Anthony family is in court for a hearing in the first-degree murder case against Casey Anthony. Lawyers are battling over the 911 calls Casey Anthony's mother made in July 2008 reporting her granddaughter, Caylee Marie Anthony, missing. Casey Anthony is joined by defense attorneys Cheney Mason and Jose Baez. Also in court are parents George Anthony and Cindy Anthony, who testified, and brother Lee Anthony, who is testifying. The defense team filed a last-minute memo Wednesday arguing against using Cindy Anthony's 911 calls at trial.

    Cindy Anthony testifies
    Baez called Cindy Anthony to testify this afternoon. She described picking up Casey Anthony's car from the impound in July 2008, and George Anthony telling her it smelled like something died, or the car had a dead body inside. Anthony said it was her husband, George Anthony, who told her it was his initial thought that a dead body had been in the car. Cindy Anthony said she had no experience in smelling decomposing bodies in vehicles.

    Assistant State Attorney Linda Drane Burdick then questioned Anthony, a nurse, about previous statements she made to law-enforcement about smelling rotting flesh and having been to a morgue. Drane Burdick asked Anthony if she connected the dead body smell with the discovery that Caylee was missing for 31 days. "If that's what connected in my mind, yes &#8230; I said what I said. I can't analyze it," Anthony said. When questioned a second time by Baez, Anthony also said she still thinks Caylee is alive.


    Lee Anthony testifies
    Just before 4 p.m., nearly two hours after the hearing began, Lee Anthony was called by Drane Burdick to testify. Lee Anthony also was questioned about what happened the day they realized Caylee was missing, and what the interaction was like with his sister.

    Judge addresses defense issues with Texas EquuSearch
    After a lengthy sidebar at the beginning of today's hearing, Chief Judge Belvin Perry resolved the EquuSearch deal. Casey Anthony's defense team will get to review the documents again, and a special magistrate will be appointed to supervise. Everything will be spelled out in a subsequent order.

    UPDATED: Judge Denies Motion, Allows Cindy's 911 Calls
    Posted: 7:52 am EDT July 15, 2010
    Updated: 5:45 pm EDT July 15, 2010
    <snipped>
    Two years ago today, Cindy Anthony frantically called 911 to report her granddaughter Caylee had disappeared. Now that call is taking center stage in a hearing in the case against Cindy&#8217;s daughter, Casey Anthony. In the 911 call, Cindy says Casey&#8217;s car smelled like it had a dead body in it. Casey's lawyers do not want the 911 call used in the murder trial.

    The main issue at hand Thursday afternoon was whether three 911 calls made by Casey's mother would be permissible as evidence in the murder case. The defense was fighting to have the calls disallowed as hearsay, and the prosecution called both Casey's mother and brother to testify. The defense lost that fight as Judge Belvin Perry ruled that all three calls are considered excited utterances, creating an exception to the hearsay rule, and will be allowed as evidence, therefore denying the defense motion.

    Judge Perry, though, did give the defense one victory, granting their request to keep the list of evidence, which they reviewed over two days this week, sealed.

    Judge Belvin Perry advised the court that the first issue to be heard is one involving Texas EquuSearch. Judge Stan Strickland had previously ruled on a defense motion seeking the names of all persons involved in the EquuSearch efforts in the search for Caylee (read previous order).

    Baez then asked Judge Perry if he could speak with him before they started. After about 15 minutes of speaking with their microphones off, Judge Perry announced that Baez would be dropping his motion, but said that Baez and EquuSearch attorney Mark NeJame need to work together so the defense can see the EquuSearch records again. &#8220;They can inspect those documents again, they can take notes. I will appoint a special magistrate ... to supervise,&#8221; Judge Perry said.

    Just before 5:00pm, Judge Perry announced a 10-minute recess. He said he'd then return with a ruling.

    At 5:05pm, Judge Perry returned to the courtroom. "The court has before it a question of whether three 911 calls ... the defense raises several theories. The first theory is these calls are hearsay," Perry said, citing cases related to such a theory. "In this particular case, we have three calls. The state has indicated that calls one and calls two are not being offered for the truth of the matter as asserted within ... testimony presented at this particular hearing indicates ... it is quite evident ... that that statement was made before there was time ... the statement was also made at the time she was under the stress of learning that her granddaughter was missing and no one knew where she was ... it's quite clear that the third call fits the description of an excited utterance,"

    Perry went on to state that the other two calls, as well, also were made under a stressful situation and ruled that all three 911 calls are permissible as evidence in the case against Casey Anthony and the motion was denied.

    Casey Anthony: Will 911 calls be allowed in court?
    Last Updated: Thursday, July 15, 2010 7:32 AM
    <snipped>
    The judge in the case against Casey Anthony could make a ruling on a major issue Thursday: The frantic 911 calls Casey&#8217;s mother made in 2008.

    Cindy Anthony, along with Casey&#8217;s brother, Lee Anthony, and Casey, herself, are expected in an Orange County courtroom for Thursday&#8217;s hearing, scheduled to begin at 2 p.m.

    Casey&#8217;s defense team filed a last-minute memorandum with the court late Wednesday night, arguing the 911 calls Cindy made after learning Casey&#8217;s 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, had been missing for weeks, should not be admissible during trial.

    Judge Belvin Perry is also expected to consider earlier rulings in the case involving Texas Equusearch, the group that helped look for Caylee&#8217;s body.

    UPDATED: Judge: Cindy Anthony 911 call admissible in murder trial
    Anthony's team files opposition to 911 calls

    A 911 recording in which Casey Anthony's mother tells a dispatcher that her daughter's car smells like a dead body can be used during the Florida woman's first-degree murder trial.

    Judge Belvin Perry, Jr. ruled during a pretrial hearing Thursday that the 911 recording can be introduced during the trial next May.

    Casey Anthony's mother, Cindy, testified that when she called 911 in July 2008 she wanted to get the dispatcher's attention so that officers would come out to her house.

    UPDATED: Judge Denies Anthony Defense's Motion; 911 Calls Allowed At Trial
    Defense Says Grandmother's 911 Calls Should Not Be Admissible

    POSTED: Wednesday, July 14, 2010
    UPDATED: 5:42 pm EDT July 15, 2010
    <snipped>
    The judge ruled that 911 calls made by Cindy Anthony to report Caylee Anthony missing can be used in court in the murder case against Casey Anthony.

    Judge Belvin Perry said the third 911 call made by Cindy Anthony fits the definition of an "excited utterance."

    Perry found that the first two calls, which he described as frantic efforts of a grandmother to find the location of her grandchild, using the ploy to get police involved to extract a statement from her daughter, could be used. He said the calls are not being offered to prove truth of matter of asserted.

    The state said the calls are being used to show the effect the calls made on Casey Anthony and to place Casey Anthony's comments in context.

    UPDATED: Judge Rules Anthony 911 Calls Admissible
    Cindy, Lee Anthony Testify In Court

    POSTED: 12:33 pm EDT July 15, 2010
    UPDATED: 5:33 pm EDT July 15, 2010
    <snipped>
    Judge Belvin Perry ruled that 911 calls made in the Casey Anthony case will be admissible as evidence during the accused mother's murder trial.

    Cindy said that she felt law enforcement did not believe Caylee was alive at the time she was reported missing. She told the defense that she still believes Caylee is alive. "I still think Caylee is alive," Cindy said.

    Lee Anthony took the stand to talk about when his mother made the 911 calls. "I was just trying to reason with Casey to answer my mom or do what she was asking and go to get Caylee,&#8221; Lee said. &#8220;It didn&#8217;t make sense not to.&#8221; Lee said he was "dumbfounded" and "shocked" when his sister admitted to him that she had not seen her daughter in 31 days.

    Also today in court, Judge Belvin Perry will hear an objection by Casey Anthony&#8217;s defense to team to keep sealed any details about the evidence items they reviewed earlier this week.

    When Lee walked up to the witness stand and saw Casey for the first time in a long time, the two had an emotional exchange.

    Lee could be seen mouthing &#8220;I love you&#8221; to his sister, Casey.

    &#8220;I&#8217;m assuming you weren&#8217;t speaking to me just now,&#8221; prosecutor Linda Drane Burdick responded.

    &#8220;Absolutely not,&#8221; Lee said.

    After the remark Casey burst into tears.

    Casey Anthony: Cindy subdued; Lee succinct; Casey in tears
    posted by halboedeker on July, 15 2010 6:26 PM
    <snipped>
    Cindy Anthony was subdued, and Lee Anthony was giggly but succinct at a hearing today in Casey Anthony&#8217;s case. Some observers expected fireworks, but that drama never materialized, although there were some strange moments. Judge Belvin Perry ruled that Cindy&#8217;s 911 calls will be heard at the murder trial next year, giving the prosecution a victory.

    In an analysis for WOFL-Ch. 35, Orlando attorney Diana Tennis theorized that Perry saw Cindy Anthony&#8217;s comments as &#8220;in-the-heat-of-the-moment statements&#8221; and took into account Cindy&#8217;s repeated statements that she had been hysterical. &#8220;That&#8217;s why he decided it wasn&#8217;t hearsay,&#8221; Tennis said.

    WKMG-Ch. 6&#8217;s Tony Pipitone said Perry&#8217;s ruling &#8220;gives the state some wide latitude in how to tell a narrative, a story&#8221; about why Casey should be convicted. Pipitone cited Cindy&#8217;s testimony about how frantic she had been as key to Perry&#8217;s decision.

    WOFL analyst Tennis said that prosecutor Linda Drane Burdick repeatedly had Cindy Anthony acknowledge that she recognizes the smell of dead bodies &#8212; undercutting the defense argument to keep her calls out. That made Cindy &#8220;look not as honest as she would like to have liked to look today,&#8221; Tennis said. &#8220;I&#8217;m hoping that the defense takes this as a little bit of practice for Cindy for when they get to trial and perhaps she&#8217;s not going to be so easily impeached at that point.&#8221;

    Judge Perry also today granted the defense&#8217;s request to seal the list of evidence its experts examined this week, WFTV reported.
