Do you think the defense experts had any idea that Jodi would testify when they agreed to work on the case? Because if she hadn't testified, wouldn't it have been somewhat easier for them to raise doubts about pre-planning without needing to bring out and corroborate every single part of her story? But then after Jodi testified weren't they trapped into claiming that in their opinion it was all true? Or would the experts have been in the same bad situation either way?
I don't think the defense experts would necessarily be privy to the defense strategy, and I'm not even sure the defense had decided whether or not Jodi would testify. That is a decision that can be made as the trial progresses.
In any event, the experts testified about what Jodi told them - so I'm sure they would not assume that Jodi's testimony would contradict what she had told the experts. That's not the experts' fault - it's Jodi's fault.
