    You know I have to wonder about that term "demotion" . As a lawyer in the firm gets older and probably takes more time off etc. I think the moving from Equity Partner to the next category (can't remember exactly the term) is normal and I never heard it called a demotion. He then continues to get revenue from the clients has or brings in to other attorneys. etc. I have always regarded that as a natural progression to full retirement. Often you see the senior lawyers are listed "of counsel"...sometimes still have offices etc. but not in on a daily basis and probably not taking new clients. I would like to hear from anyone that knows about this.

    Jurors review evidence in Day 3 of deliberations in Tex McIver murder trial (with clip)
    Jurors have been deliberating for about a total of 16 hours at this point.

    "FULTON COUNTY, Ga. — The jury in the Tex McIver murder case took a hard look at some of the evidence during Day 3 of deliberation....

    There's still no decision yet, but jurors wanted to see a few very specific things that were presented at trial again.

    On Wednesday, they asked the judge three questions, including whether McIver could be found guilty of certain charges and not others. They also asked to get back inside the SUV where McIver's wife Diane was shot with the gun and review emails between the two.

    The jurors did get to see those last two pieces of evidence Thursday, viewing printouts of some of the emails sent between Tex and Diane presented at trial – many of them about money. After, they went back down to the sally port and again to look at the SUV. They took the actual gun used in the shooting and took turns holding it in their lap while another juror sat in the front seat, where the driver would have been, and looked back.

    Finally, they re-watched the first interview Tex McIver and his attorneys gave to Atlanta Police, in which detectives said Tex's behavior was strange, and inconsistent with a grieving widower...."

    Jury Questions Are the Norm in Tex McIver Murder Trial

    "The blockbuster question late Wednesday hinting at a possible acquittal of Atlanta attorney Claud “Tex” Mciver on charges stemming from the fatal shooting of his wife has not been their only question.

    Jurors asked 298 questions of witnesses during 20 days of testimony in McIver’s ongoing murder trial. Fulton County Superior Court Chief Judge Robert McBurney has screened all of those questions, some of which he has not allowed.

    They have also not shied away from questions during deliberations, which began Tuesday...

    Allowing jurors to ask questions following direct and cross-examination of witnesses is unusual, but it is not unprecedented.

    Asked why he was letting jurors pose questions, McBurney replied “Why not?”

    McBurney said he decided to adopt the practice after learning that Judge Reggie Walton of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia allowed jurors to pose questions to witnesses during the 2007 trial of attorney Lewis “Scooter” Libby, chief of staff to former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney...

    McIver attorney Bruce Harvey has objected to the juror questions since the beginning, saying the practice has Sixth Amendment implications regarding a defendant’s right to a fair, impartial trial.

    “There are questions you may not have asked, particularly by design to fit in with your defense strategy and representation of your client,” he said. “And then a juror may ask that very question, and the judge may say, ‘Sure,’ which completely undoes that particular strategy you have for that witness.”

    Harvey added that the practice also allows the court to interject itself into questioning.

    “The Georgia Supreme Court has approved the practice,” he said. “But nobody has raised that critical constitutional implication.”..."

    BBM So Mr. Harvey wants the jury not to question anything because it will mess up his stories....I mean his strategy... harrumph. :slap:

    Tex has to know you go to Grady for a gun shot wound or severe burn. We -all- know we should go there for those injuries. Grady also serves the poor, which is not appealing to those who see themselves as “better than”. But when it comes down to surviving or not, I cannot imagine driving away from the closest hospital that could save your life.

    YOu know you make a good point......we have something similar where I live...an excellent trauma center is in a really bad area and it could be just that reason that Tex made that decision.

    i firmly believe Corey is behind this billboard event that apparently is going to happen soon...he owns billboards and I am sure he arranged this. Corey wants Tex gone now.

    Will the defense start today bringing up those billboards that are planned to go up and was plastered on SM?

    If so, it will be telling how the judge responds.

    good morning...probably not due to the fact there is not one thing that judge or court can do. no doubt they are going on Corey billboards. I say if this trial goes on until Monday I expect some jury issues by Monday. If they go up before the verdict what possible reason could there be other than hoping a juror would see one before they decide?

    #TexMcIver - The jury resumes deliberations this morning around 9am. They've deliberated for an approximate total of 15 1/2 hours so far. Will there be a verdict today?

    #TexMcIver - Juries tend to come back with verdicts on Friday afternoon to avoid returning after the weekend. We could see a verdict/partial verdict/hung jury today.
