I don't feel sorry for her. She's was of those feminist man haters that I just hate. The woman is always the victim, the man is always the villian. It's not about feminism or equality, it's about hate. She came into a situation and decided she had everyone figured out and that Jodi just had to be a victim and disregarded any evidence to the contrary. She tried to pull the wool over a jury's eyes to get a murderer off, and lied not just about her credentials, but lied for Jodi to cover up for her. And now she is going along with the can't testify because of death threats idiocy set up by the DT. I have no sympathy for this woman. None.
Yes, all of this, BUT I don't think any of this is JSS's fault. This is how it's done. She's just following protocol. It's why cases take years to hit the court room. The more guilty a defendant, the longer it takes. I don't think she really has a choice.
September 16 is only 2 weeks away, so that is not bad. JSS will rule on any motions and set a trial date by then, Juan may or may not be finished with his current trial, but would be better able to tell when he will be finished for scheduling purposes, Nurmi/Wimott will have time to figure out their calendars and clear whatever amount of time they all decide this phase shall take. It will take a few weeks, but I couldn't guess how many, depends on how they decide to proceed.
I do hope the quote about transcripts was wrong on pages. No way all those weeks is only 1,500 pages. It may be 15,000 pages or more for the entire trial. 1,500 would only be a couple of days or so.
