    This is the latest round of motions that were filed since JS has stepped down and IMO they are just a absurd as all the others.

    •In another motion, Anthony's defense claims state prosecutors decided to seek the death penalty in an attempt to prevent her from retaining attorneys of her choice.

    The defense team claims prosecutors found out during a March 12, 2009 hearing how much money Anthony had to fund her defense, and that amount "was insufficient to fund a death penalty case."

    The defense claims prosecutors knew that by seeking the death penalty, Anthony would have to hire more lawyers because her already retained attorney, Jose Baez, was not qualified to defend a death case in Florida.

    "The Prosecution knew that this would financially break the defense," defense attorney Andrea Lyon wrote.

    The defense team asks the court to set a hearing date as well as a private hearing with a judge, where the court "may hear additional evidence from the defense" in support of their motion.

    •In a separate motion, Anthony's defense claimed the prosecution unjustly sought the death penalty partly because of sexism.

    "Researchers have found that when women defy traditional gender stereotypes, and commit ‘men-type' crimes, there are punished more severely than comparable male offenders," Lyons argued. "The defense…has found four cases in the last five years where Orange County prosecutors have declined to seek the death penalty against fathers who murdered their children."

    Anthony's lawyers also asked the court not release any information about witnesses the defense may call during the trial's penalty phase, if she is convicted of murder. They claimed identifying witnesses favorable to Anthony might prevent them from testifying.

    If anyone knows where the actual motions are could you please post them.

    If you notice most of these motions are discussing the penalty phase. Strange isn't it I thought JB stated that KC was innocent and he would prove it.

    I posted this in the other thread and am bring it over .

    See that is the kind of absurd thing I hope this judge puts a stop to.As it stands the death penalty is legal in Florida a the criminal court system is not a place to fight those such things. If they feel the death penalty unconstitutional then they need to take it up with the appropriate courts. As for now though the prosecution has every right to seek the DP and they have chose to.

    Closed this thread rather quickly this morning. Coming back around to provide a brief explanation.

    There is a listing of motions in a "no discussions" thread here: [ame="http://www.websleuths.com/forums/showthread.php?t=94377"]List of Motions **List Only No Discussion** - Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community[/ame]

    Feel free to pick a motion and launch a thread on it if you wish to discuss THAT motion in particular. Please use the heading that Angel used in her post as the title of the thread you launch to help keep things easy to follow.

    Thanks for your patience!
