    One thing he could do is sequester the jury. Yep, I agree they could be Corey BBs.

    ...and Good Morning!

    no question they are Corey boards....the cost on those is very very expensive and of course for him only the loss of revenue for some days ...not sure if they are digital or not.

    I'm not a lawyer, I just watch and read a lot of true crime and lawyer/poliec procedurals, but IMOO, at a minimum, the Prosecution should have said either in Opening or Closing, he knew he was near Grady, where does everybody in Atlanta know you should take serious trauma injuries, gunshots/car wrecks?? GRADY

    Again, I believe it's highly suspicious that someone familiar with Atlanta knows they are near Grady and they just shot somebody and then gives instructions to go to Emory.

    Emory is well known for Cardiology and Cancer treatments, but I don't know anybody who would go to their ER for anything other than minor accidents, such as breaks/sprains, stitches or like I said, they are known for Caridology, so maybe heart problems.

    Agree, the article does not give reason/motive for the demotion, but it later goes into the Firm leading him to retirement, and in 2017 he was going to cease being a partner of any kind, so no Partner salary. He would only receive his portion of what he made off of his clients.

    Law firms are not the cash cows and lucrative positions they once were. Many recent law school graduates over the last several years since the 2008 crash have been struggling to find work at firms. Sounds to me like, and this is only MOO, that the firm was trying to get off the hook for large salaries and expenses.

    And I agree, this would be both humiliating and worrisome for McIver. If his personal finance are already in disorder (and they were because he was borrowing from Diane by putting up the ranch for collateral) then knowing that your firm is pushing you into retirement before you are ready financially and then in 2017, you will have no longer have a regular salary, then you are becoming desperate financially. And if you want your "beloeved ranch", which is how many articles have described it, to be handed down in your family, then you don't have many options. IMOO opinion, Diane McIver seemed to be definitely treating the money to McIver as loans in every sense of the word and legal terms, and not just giving money to McIver. So it seems like McIver was losing both financial control of the ranch and property ownership of the ranch.

    So while the defense made it look like all of this was "fine" because they "loved" each other, in reality, McIver was losing control of the one thing he owned and used to have complete control over....the ranch.

    i don't feel that the state explained it very clearly about the salary reduction. Above is a better rationale for Tex being desperate...and same with Grady....I just think somehow the state missed the boat on many things and given it was such a long drawn out (one week off) trial a closing that hit the high points hard to refresh memories is what was required and I did not hear that from the state.

    Dying declaration Diane that it was an accident could have been used more in the trial...it is pretty powerful.

    Honestly this is a strange verdict watch for me...on one hand I don't think the state proved their case and don't care for some of the judge's rulings and would be ok with ng on all except 5...prefer ms and 5 and if they found him guilty of murder not too upset either.

    Entering hour 19 or jury deliberations in the Tex McIver Murder Trial... still no verdict. No juror questions yet today either. People on both sides are still sitting in the courtroom.

    Latest update from court: Jurors asked for 15 minute break to get food. They’ll bring it back and work through lunch. Yesterday they told the judge they would deliberate today until 4pm #verdictwatch #texmciver

    Random thoughts during deliberations. Got to wondering about her first husband...wonder who he is...where he is? I know they said the divorce was really bitter...so it seems Diane had two marriages with rough endings.

    Still on verdict watch. The courtroom is slowly filling with people again. All anticipating a verdict soon. If a verdict today, will have to be before 4pm since that is when the jury requested to leave today. #TexMcIver

    #TexMcIver - The jury light is on. This normally means question or verdict.

    Taking an afternoon break when they are wanting to leave at 4 does not indicate to me they are close...either they are done and will announce upon their return and just preparing for the media or nothing today . I don't like the idea of them going over the weekend and coming back on Monday and don't see them deliberating on Sat. either.
