    Huh. Doesnt JB have something else he is working on? Perhaps he was trumped for the book he has to be writing about all of this. I mean, I am assuming he is penning a tell-all.

    why does the phrase "be careful what you ask for" come to mind?

    My head exploded when I read about this. Seriously? And I did read in Jeff's book that the Judge said he could write from his notes and recollection. Why all the sour grapes when that woman walked away from it all? The bird-flippin Mr. Mason is way out of line, imo

    FWIW...I hold all of the DT in contempt.

    Cheney Mason filed the motion

    http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/...,1945078.story

    In the latest motion, Mason acknowledged that he hasn't read Ashton's book, but references a motion filed by the Orlando Sentinel earlier this week, in which the news organization seeks to unseal those two key depositions.

    I want Ashton to SO profit on his book! What he does with it is his business, but I would hope he's use it wisely & share it.

    "our recollections & notes of the reports are NOT sealed or restricted in any way" therefore, SA was able to discuss with George & Cindy about the DTs theories prior to OS.

    "run afoul with them" (I guess his notes/recollections)

    "running for State's Attorney?"

    from his interview with News 13

    Thank you for the correction to my attribution. Apparently Mr Mason has more time on his hands...just kidding. It is kind of hard not to see this as sour grapes on his part-unfortunate given their win and Mr. Mason's prior solid career. At least IMO.

    He (Mason) and Lizbeth should have read the book first :floorlaugh:

    This is the BEST gift ever to me!

    Yep, I can hear the entire defense team and OCA whining in my head. "WE were supposed to make money, not HIM! It's not FAIR!"

    I bet Ashton is laughing his head off about this right now...talk about the sorest winners I have EVER known...

    I hope Judge Perry revisits things that the defense should have been put into contempt for, sheesh! I can actually hear Judge Perry saying, "Mr. Mason, do you really want to go there? How many times did I not put the defense in contempt?" (Well, I wish he'd say that, but he probably won't).

    Mr. Ashton strikes me as a multi-tasker; perhaps after he and his attorneys kick the DT's hiney, he can then run right across the street and host yet another standing room only, received to resounding applause, Imperfect Justice book signing. Its a win-win situation.

    This would also give Chaney Mason a chance to finally get around to reading Mr. Ashton's book, and get a personalized autographed copy to boot!

    p.s. I just bet OCA, the veteran event planner, would have thought of this first, that is if she was not so busy reflecting.

    Anthony's defense says Ashton violated the court's order "strictly for profit."

    I know that there was a motion for the DT not to profit from the case, but all parties ? don't know (going to sleuth)

    I haven't heard of that motion, but Jeff Ashton retired from being a prosecutor. He can write a book if he wants to and make money off of it, though I don't think he did this strictly for money. This is just defense BS whining at it's finest. They got stuck with a dud while Ashton is on top of the world, and they can't stand it.

    Could be that Mr. Mason's hit a brick wall in terms of writing his own book. Maybe he just needs more "juicy" material. Afterall, watching over KC can't be all that interesting now. jmo
