    Speaking Objection Law & Legal Definition

    Speaking objection is an objection that contains more information than needed by the judge to sustain or overrule it. It is often in the form of an argument. Many judges prohibit lawyers from using speaking objections, and sometimes even from stating the grounds for objections, as it can influence the jury.

    An interruption of the opposing counsel with a speech rather than a simple, succinct objection stating a rule or point of evidence is also referred to as speaking objection.

    "sparing his clients life" could also mean the DT's job is to minimize or eliminate their clients time in prison

    This judge seems a little bit biased.

    IMO There have been inconsistencies (some slight, some troubling) from both sides. This does not necessarily disparage the witnesses as it happens all of the time.

    When there is a plane crash or sometimes a car crash - several *eye witnesses* see things differently.

    I believe it will boil down to the forensics as the state has already admitted (under oath) that they cannot prove who started the physical part of the encounter. We haven't seen much of this yet.... but from what I've read the defense has expert witnesses on several key points. IMO

    Hi all,

    Gingerly stepping into this sensitive conversation to say how impressed I am with this witness.

    The DT seems to have greatly underestimated her intelligence/ability, thought they could just mess with her, but the defense lawyer is the one acting obnoxious and getting flustered.

    Hang in there Rachel. Justice for Trayvon.

    I love this judge. She is showing how a court room is to be run, by her.

    IMO, she is young and immature, and so she is responding in the way she knows how to, which is to try to protect herself from revealing any lies she may have told before. Then you have the nickname, wanting to avoid the parents at first, giving her age as 16 instead of 18, etc. These are very understandable given her age. And now she is being questioned by someone who already knows the answers, and she has to, again IMO, try to keep everything straight, and he is intentionally trying to get her flustered, which is normal on cross examination. The judge realizes this, I think, and is trying to get the defense lawyer to ask more direct questions, but this is cross. No one is at fault here, it is what it is, IMO.

    I know this isn't a DP case, but what a difference from the JA judge. IMO, this judge seems biased for the prosecution. This defense attorney, however, seems unrattled by her decisions.

    Sorry - I meant "spare his life" as in spare his freedom - he could be sentenced to life. (or that is my understanding) imo

    Agree.


    Dear Arizona:

    Please pay attention. This is how a trial is supposed to be conducted.

    I literally could not handle it! I have pretty severe anxiety and have a nervous stomach, pick my fingers when I'm nervous, and when I am right and I know it but someone doesn't see it... I get a little passionate. Hysterical, potty break taking, finger skin picking witnesses probably aren't credible! :floorlaugh:

    Why would the victim's family member be present during a deposition?

    Did anyone see AC360 last night? They played the video of GZ when he did the walk through of the event. He told the interviewer (detective?), that he yelled and yelled for help. Was this before the 911 tape containing the screams was released? If so, perhaps it is GZ yelling on that recording?

    Because Crump wanted them to be there, IMO

    There is a really good reason why he wanted them to be there too.
