    The clues are all there.

    Being verified means that when you are speaking about 'legal aspects of the case', members know that it is not just being purported as correct, but actually is correct. Therefore, they might be more interested......

    Well the OC doesn't show much regard for the basic intelligence of the posters on this forum.

    Agree with this. Technology and the app in question is not the problem here and never was.

    Having spoken to other lawyers who have been on this site, my experience is not unique. The open hostility towards members who don't concur with the majority is the reason there is a paucity of verified legal opinion on here.

    Well, I'd be interested to hear a moderator's perspective on this. Not sure how they can gauge whether you hold a majority position or not when verifying you. Do you always take the converse to majority position on all cases? Or are you saying they have done that to lawyers on this specific case?

    The law, dare i say it, can be very dry and depressing. I don't think the reason most people come to this forum is necessarily for the "legal" aspect. Though i'm sure some do and it has its place occasionally. Especially when needing more info about certain aspects or certain things explained.

    Thing is, the law may be the law, but the law is not necessarily the whole truth. Anyone who has been a victim of crime can attest to this. The legal system often lets people down. I can talk about my own two experiences of how it has. Murder trials are never about the victim, they're about the accused. Every lawyer i know and have worked with thinks our justice system is great and they like their job and respect "the law", but they're seeing it from a very different perspective than the rest of us.

    Being able to talk about things that aren't admissible in court (for example) is important, but is totally frowned upon by those in the legal fraternity.

    Sometimes it is about the ~feels~.

    Hit the nail on the head. Taking the view of examining only the evidence as presented in Court appears to be heavily frowned upon on this forum, to the point where you are vilified.

    He/she has provided very logical responses from a legal point of view to help understand how the correct decision based on the evidence was not guilty. There is no place for emotions when examining the evidence at hand in order to come to a rational conclusion. Display of emotion appears to have some correlation to lack of understanding of the acquittal.

    BBM. Sorry, no I don't, and I saw no facetiousness in what you posted, but let's leave it at that.

    I agree, jessica. It is also about not being talked down to, because we are all intelligent human beings who like to analyse and research our subject(s). We do not come from a position of no knowledge. And because we disagree with any particular laws, does not mean that we can't understand the law and still disagree with it.

    My pet peeve is the laws that protect pedos. I am sure lawyers will give us every reason in the book why those laws are 'correct'. But they are not. And these creeps should not be protected with privacy and set free over and over again to rape and molest more children. We have a right to protect our children, and part of that protection is having a public national sex offender registry. But that is a subject for another forum .....

    Maybe because that's what the court is for ...?
    And we are not have those same constraints.

    “I asked not to release the audio tape yet I was overruled by the judge,” Ms Tagpuno Wright’s statement said. “I did not want to remember her like that.

    “I feel my family has been disrespected by the judge’s ruling to release the audio tape to the media.”

    Mr Tostee’s lawyer, Nick Dore, defended the release of the recording after the trial, telling Channel Ten’s The Project it ensured his client received a fair trial.

    “Obviously luckily it was recorded. Otherwise if it wasn’t … no one would have believed what transpired that night,” Mr Dore said ............

    It also emerged after the trial that Mr Tostee has dropped a $150,000 lawsuit against the Nine Network’s A Current Affair program..............

    Mr Tostee was suing the program and producer Stephanie Angus over what he alleged were defamatory comments broadcast on August 12, 2014 before he was charged with Ms Wright’s murder.

    A Current Affair executive producer Grant Williams told AAP the case was no longer in court and that Mr Tostee agreed to make “a financial contribution” to the program’s costs.
