    You devoted an astonishing amount of time and effort consolidating and posting those tweets, creating an historical record of a major trial. It is appreciated.

    When the court was addressing restitution for Susan's funeral and memorial costs and Durst agreeing to waive his presence at any hearings, Durst pulled his mask down and said something to Chesnoff, also gestering with his hand in a sort of patting down movement. When I was watching it live I thought he was saying 'put NO limit on it', and for one crazy moment I actually thought he was moved by Sareb's difficulties since Susan's murder.

    I went back to watch it to make sure that's what I'd heard. What he actually said was "put a LOW limit on it".

    He is not only miserly. He is cruel and remorseless through his bones.

    Miserly, cruel, and remorseless, yet he may still have at least one more long-deserved date with Lady Justice:

    Dick DeGuerin no longer represents #RobertDurst

    This is not unusual for the trial attorneys to be finished once there's a conviction and an appeal is in the works. The trial attorneys rarely stay on for the appeal process. Durst isn't facing charges (yet) anywhere else. #RobertDurst

    Durst’s other lawyer Chesnoff was the one handling pre-appeal matters during the trial. For example, all those mistrial motions he made - those have to be made as they come up at trial so an appeal can be filed later saying they were wrongly decided. If they don’t object at the time, they have no basis to appeal later.

    There were a bunch of times Chesnoff said, while being overruled, that he just wanted to “make a record” or “mark the issue.” Those were references to future appeal considerations.

    now if we were to hear that Chesnoff is no longer representing Durst, THAT would interesting! But highly doubt that’s going to happen…. unless Chesnoff wins the scratch-off lottery or something

    Durst must be hanging on to life, but haven't read any reports that he's off the ventilator.

    "A state police investigator filed a criminal complaint Tuesday in a town court in Lewisboro, New York charging Durst with second-degree murder in the death of Kathie Durst, who vanished in 1982. ...

    “The Westchester County District Attorney’s Office can confirm that a complaint charging Robert Durst with the murder of Kathleen Durst was filed in Lewisboro Town Court on October 19, 2021. We have no further comment at this time,” Rocah's office said in a statement Friday. ...

    The criminal complaint filed Tuesday against Robert Durst was done parallel to the grand jury proceedings, which could continue for several more weeks. Such filings are often seen as a first step in the criminal process because, in New York, all felony cases require a grand jury indictment to proceed to trial unless a defendant waives that requirement."

    "The New York Times first reported the Westchester charge on Friday morning.

    Westchester prosecutors had begun presenting the case to a grand jury this week. They took the unusual step of filing a criminal complaint while that was going on, likely out of fear that Durst, in failing health and reportedly hospitalized with COVID-19 over the weekend, could die before any charges were brought against him.

    Lawyers for Durst could not immediately be reached for comment. There has been no public update on Durst's medical condition since one of his lawyers, Dick DeGuerin, revealed he had COVID-19.

    Robert Abrams, a lawyer for Kathie Durst's relatives, said only that the family was happy with the criminal charge. He said there would be no further comment because the case is still before the grand jury. Some or all of her four siblings have either testified already or are expected to testify."

    It was his latest mugshot. Perhaps the ventilator was temporarily removed for the photo.

    Welcome to WS @Graceland .

    Note to everybody - I was just thinking we need to start a new thread for Kathie, but I see we already have one. See you all over there, if he ever makes it to trial!
