    Judge Orders Garrido Lawyer Off Case

    Court documents don't say why Maines was removed, but the decision was made the day after the court received unspecified "confidential evidence". Phimister ordered the records sealed.

    What type of information would this be?

    I read that Maines is not a public defender but a court-appointed, panel attorney. I don't understand the difference.

    I have no idea what the difference is, but I have a sneaking suspicion this occured due to ng's request, perhaps motivated by pg.

    Nancy Garrido's Lawyer Removed from Case

    http://www.news10.net/news/article.aspx?storyid=70104&provider=top&catid=188

    There's a short video on the topic (I must have missed it before - what is Nancy doing here? It looks like fake wretching around) A commentator, defense attorney, says the relationship between Nancy and her attorney broke down and as I suspected he says some chance Phillip Garrido had something to do with it. Nancy's attorney had laid out her defense as being a victim of Phillip's...

    minute order of the meeting (doesn't tell me much, but here it is)

    Wow, I would think that the only chance for defense that ng had, was the control by pg. This will be interesting, especially considering the confidential information!!

    Sunnie, I agree... I guess we will eventually know the full story. I wonder if the confidential information is a psychological report?

    I did not know those 2 had contact, I would imagine that keeping them separated they would get far more information out of them then if they allow those two to mingle in anyway.
    I had assumed they would keep them apart (not just by a Cell). If they wrote to each other I would imagine that security would read it first. just thinking......

    Not usually the conspiracy theorist, but you pay off a guard, give him a message, he calls a buddy on a different floor, pod or prison and your message gets through. Happens fairly often.

    My only thought on this is that criminals seem to have a LOT of rights. I would think they could write to each other, even if they can't talk to each other. I do wonder if something happened between the two lawyers (ng and pg's) and pg found out something he didn't like.

    :waitasec: Don't they need money to pay someone?
    I actually wonder how he got out of jail so early in the first time, years ago? I wonder about how he
    escaped LE for 18 years? I wonder if he is not ALLOWED to fall through the Cracks because HE perhaps
    knows of other lurid thing in higher places. just thinking :waitasec:
    And yes if they are communicating definitely PG is running the show.

    New lawyer appointed for Nancy Garrido

    sstanton@sacbee.com
    Published: Thursday, Nov. 12, 2009 - 1:49 pm

    A judge in Placerville this morning appointed a veteran defense attorney to represent accused kidnapper Nancy Garrido on an interim basis, apparently rejecting her first attorney's request that he be reinstated.

    The move, outlined in court documents that indicate the order was issued this morning, makes Stephen A. Tapson of Placerville her court-appointed lawyer at least until a Nov. 30 hearing on the matter is held.

    Reached at his office this afternoon, Tapson confirmed that he had been appointed but declined to comment further, other than to say "I don't know but we'll see" when asked if he wanted to stay on as Garrido's defense lawyer.

    Garrido's previous court-appointed attorney, Gilbert Maines, was removed by Judge Douglas Phimister last week in a closed hearing after the judge received "confidential information," court records state. Maines has not responded to a request for comment.

    The nature of the confidential information and the reason for Maines' removal is not explained in the documents, which note that records of the hearing were sealed.

    But court documents filed today indicate that the judge had received an envelope from Maines on Tuesday marked "Confidential Eyes Only Hon. Judge D. Phimister from G. E. Maines."

    The documents also indicated the judge had read a memo and declaration from Maines and apparently denied his request to continue as Garrido's lawyer.

    Instead, Phimister appointed Tapson and indicated he had informed the El Dorado County Jail of the change so Tapson could contact Garrido there.

    Garrido, 54, is accused along with her husband, Phillip, 58, of kidnapping 11-year-old Jaycee Lee Dugard in 1991 when she was 11 and holding her captive for 18 years.

    Both defendants have pleaded not guilty to rape, kidnap and other charges that could send them to prison for life.

    Not sure of the most appropriate thread for this. They speak briefly with Garrido's attorney, though.

    http://www.kcra.com/news/21633706/detail.html

    PLACERVILLE, Calif. --
    The trial against Phillip and Nancy Garrido could be moved to Sacramento, Stockton or Modesto, as finding impartial jurors could be difficult in Placerville, according to a former deputy district attorney.

    Trying not to nitpick here, but it is not a jury's job to be sympathetic (THANK GOD), it is their job to be impartial and fair. That being said, this case has gotten so much publicity, I think the venue change wouldn't matter one way or the other, and I'd actually be surprised to see it moved.
