    Tadpole12,
    Yes I'll bet they are thinking we'll get AH to tell us why we are wrong using the True Bills that AH never filed, including all the summary details and sealed productions?

    If they then win the case they are sitting on a goldmine of information?

    If they lose the case because AH cannot testify due to GJ rules, etc might be they go after the GJ True Bills in a civil case citing them being sealed as a denial of justice, procedural malpractise, etc?

    From the article posted above:

    "The public interest in maintaining DNA evidence regarding this open homicide case is strong," Toro wrote in a motion to quash the subpoena. "The release of any DNA analysis not previously released by Boulder (which is to say all of the DNA evidence in Boulder's possession) could cause speculation about the identity of the killer that could hamper this investigation, even generating more pressure on Boulder to release even more confidential information.

    "It would also reveal information about Boulder's approach to DNA testing and the methods it uses."
    In my opinion, the DNA evidence must show some very incriminating R family member DNA where it should not be. What other reason would they be so desperate to hide the DNA results? There's a smoking gun in the DNA evidence imho, one that will be very hard for them to explain away. It would make no sense whatsoever for them to want to hide information about unmatched/mixed DNA, so it has to be something on a known party, and it has to be DNA of a type and in a location that does not look good, and does not fit with the department's previous bogus exonerations. All just my humble opinion.

    On another note, re the Alex Hunter subpoena. I would love to see them get Alex Hunter under oath. There's a lot of very interesting questions they could ask Hunter under penalty of felony perjury that I think would make him squirm like a stuck pig. Again, all just my humble opinion.

    Let’s get him freely talking.
    After all; someone innocent does not need to measure their words.
    May G-d Open The Mouths Of Everyone Involved In This Murder, Exactly Like Baalams’ Donkey.
    This child has no one to speak for her. She has been rendered mute and powerless.
    May the truth be spoken.
    May she receive her Justice.
    As is her right as an American Citizen.
    Period.
    No matter how much it inconveniences those who have Something To Hide.

    The Ramseys have finally met their match. They thought they could file this huge lawsuit and get another settlement but CBS & Co went into this with eyes wide open and plenty of legal guidance before they ever even started filming.

    The R’s will end up dropping this suit because otherwise *everything* will end up being revealed.

    I wonder if CBS can continue the suit in some way if the R’s drop it?! Get the truth, CBS!!

    Jonbenét Ramsey's Brother Burke Urges Investigators To Release Hidden Files

    JonBenét Ramsey’s Brother Urges Investigators To Release Files That Prove His Innocence
    Who killed JonBenét Ramsey? That’s the question that’s plagued authorities and family members for nearly 22 years. Now, the former beauty queen’s brother, Burke Ramsey, is determined to prove his innocence once and for all — by pressuring investigators for key documents.

    According to Radar Online, the 31-year-old served CBS with a whopping $750 million defamation lawsuit for the 2016 docuseries The Case of: JonBenét Ramsey, and his team is pushing for the release of more than 60,000 pages of confidential police and FBI records, DNA evidence, and medical examinations gathered during the investigation.

    The Ramsey family attorney, L. Lin Wood, insists: “Burke is innocent.”

    Burke’s lawyers say key evidence about the contents of JonBenét’s stomach was deliberately left out of the docuseries in order to frame him. The scenario alleged that a then-nine-year-old Burke was furious at JonBenét for stealing pineapple from his bowl, so he smashed her over the head with a flashlight and killed her.

    But Burke’s lawsuit claims the pineapple found in JonBenét’s body was in the intestinal tract below her stomach — meaning it had been eaten two to three hours before she died. Additionally, grapes and cherries were found in her system, which the series failed to disclose.

    Experts — who testified in the case — said JonBenét would have died within three minutes of a blow to the head, so she wouldn’t have digested the pineapple. In other words, the docuseries’ theory is impossible.

    On Christmas day in 1996, JonBenét was discovered sexually molested and strangled to death in the basement of the family’s Boulder, CO home. Although many people have been associated with her murder, the case is still open.
    The Boulder District Attorney’s office supported the theory that JonBenét was killed by an intruder, with a broken window in the basement and the gruesome way she was killed (suffocated by a garrote) listed as potential “evidence.”

    However, the alleged intruder/murderer has not been found; in 2006, elementary school teacher John Mark Karr falsely confessed to the pageant star’s murder, but DNA samples provided by him did not match the DNA samples found on the child’s body.

    In Summer 2016, In Touch revealed that Michael Vail tipped off police about his high school friend Gary Oliva — a pedophile with a strong connection to the case — calling him days after the 1996 murder confessing that he “hurt a little girl.” To this day, though, who truly killed JonBenét remains unsolved.

    Thanks for the update. I've always strongly believed that a nine-year old didn't commit and/or simply wasn't physically capable of this crime, but this doesn't at all prove his innocence one way or the other, if it is indeed true. Simply because she had more fruit in her system or because she had eaten it immediately when the family returned home, doesn't at all prove that he didn't murder her 3 hours later that morning. It proves nothing.

    The cover / lead story of the current National Enquirer is this lawsuit. Worth the read but not verifiable. Both the BPD and DA are trying to prevent CBS's request for access to case files claiming it's an ongoing investigation... more likely they are ashamed

    sgrump,
    This story will have been ran past LW since it is Pro Ramsey all the way right down to the last paragraph where poor deceased Glenn Meyer is fingered as Jonbenet's killer.

    NI are obviously just cherry-picking from the litigation case papers:

    National Enquirer, Excerpt
    BBM: Its italicised in the Enquirer piece, but bolded here for emaphasis as quoting is italicised.

    Guess what they left out? Burke Ramsey's touch-dna on JonBenet's bloodstained Pink Nightgown which was found at the crime-scene, whereas the bowl of pineapple was not!

    All the pineapple tells us is that the Ramsey's version of events conflicts with the content of her stomach.

    National Enquirer, Excerpt
    BBM: as note the system is a general term not as specific as Lower Intestinal Tract, etc, meaning it could have been plucked out of the air.

    Of course Burke is going to cite his experts, thats what they get paid for: to tell everyone exactly what they were paid to opine on !

    Its just another National Enquirer splash, they call it journalism, I know what President Trump calls this stuff.

    The Ramsey lawyers are doing nothing but posturing and spinning the facts to suit their case. The pineapple has always been a huge problem for the Ramseys. It’s actually laughable that he says CBS theory was she stole the pineapple and then was hit in the head with the flashlight and died instantly after, making it impossible for Burke to have killed her because the piece of pineapple had some digestion into the duodenum before she died. CBS never stated that she died immediately after the head blow. In fact, they theorize she died some 45min to 2 hours after she received the head blow. The pineapple material is actually right where it should be. The key piece of evidence from the autopsy report is the fact that there was nothing behind, with, or ahead of the pineapple in the digestive tract, except for fecal material that was in the large intestine-presumably the cracked crab dinner she ate at the Whites around 6pm that evening. This means that JBR had fresh pineapple soon after they arrived home around 9:30pm. Considering where the pineapple had traveled in her digestive tract, that puts the time of death between 11pm and midnight.

    Former Ramsey case DA cites Hawaii trip in bid to avoid defamation case subpoena

    Former Ramsey case DA cites Hawaii trip in bid to avoid defamation case subpoena
    Alex Hunter, 81, has been retired since January 2001

    October 23, 2018

    "Former Boulder County District Attorney Alex Hunter is fighting a subpoena in a $750 million defamation suit arising from the JonBenet Ramsey case by arguing, in part, that it is an "annoyance" that would interfere with his annual relocation to Hawaii.

    Hunter's arguments also assert that compliance with the subpoena could compromise an "open investigation and potential prosecution" of the person or persons responsible for JonBenet's death.

    Hunter is one of several parties targeted with subpoenas by both sides in the high stakes defamation claim made by Burke Ramsey — he was 9 when 6-year-old JonBenet was killed — against the CBS Corp. and additional parties who produced the September 2016 docuseries "The Case of: JonBenet Ramsey," which suggested Burke Ramsey was responsible for his sister's death."

    Former Ramsey case DA cites Hawaii trip in bid to avoid defamation case subpoena

    con't

    "In a reply to the subpoena filed there Friday, Hunter's attorney states "Mr. Hunter is 81 years old, has been retired from the District Attorney's Office for approximately 18 years, and he is a non-party to the underlying action."

    It also states that "Mr. Hunter normally spends November to May in Hawai'i and has plans to leave Colorado on November 5, 2018. Any deposition that does not have a strong basis upon which to take place is an undue burden to him, is oppressive, and is an absolute annoyance."

    The filing adds that it's "hard to imagine" CBS lawyers don't already have every shred of information they need to defend themselves "without distressing a retired, elderly gentleman about statements that it already possesses."

    Attorney Dea Wheeler, on Hunter's behalf, argues that CBS lawyers' interest in Hunter centers on "two public statements" made by Hunter more than 18 years ago. One came in a news release in May 1999, while he was still in office, in which it was noted that then-Boulder Police Chief Mark Beckner had said in a press conference that police were not looking at Burke Ramsey as a suspect, and that "To this day Burke Ramsey is not a suspect."

    Secondly, Hunter signed an affidavit in October 2000, shortly before leaving office, which stated in part, "From December 26th, 1996 to the date of this affidavit, no evidence has ever been developed in the investigation to justify elevating Burke Ramsey's status from that of witness to suspect."

    Hunter's recent filing argues that any information he might be able to offer now relating either to his 1999 statement or 2000 affidavit "is privileged and confidential because the Boulder Police Department investigation remains open."
