I'm not surprised at all,as this is what I thought this whole thing was about from the beginning.

Then what would be in it for Nifong? What's his excuse for keeping this going? He wouldn't be involved in a civil suit.
The AV doesn't seem too interested in appearing to testify in the legal case. She'd certainly have to appear in a civil case as well. Any defense attorney is going to make mincemeat out of her testimony.
What's she gonna do if the boys turn around and sue her?
Sorry, I was just being sarcastic. Jesse Jackson has already said he'd pay for her education, so she's already making money off of this whole thing.
A spectator in the courtroom caused a scene in Reid Seligmanns hearing today. Yelling hateful things at him. After the hearing, the spectator was heard telling Seligman "You're a dead man walking"
Reported by Greta Van Susteren. Waiting for link......
Can you say "Change of venue?"
That would be good.
I was just going to ask about this..thank you. I had no idea that the right to a speedy trial varied from state to state. I saw that Seligman requested a speedy trial and was promptly turned down.
This is just unbelievable. A speedy trial would really hurt the prosecution.
What was in it for Nifong was reelection.The money in a civil case was what was on her mind from the beginning.
>What was in it for Nifong was reelection.The money in a civil case was what was on her mind from the beginning.Oh, I see what you mean now. I think at first her motive was revenge, just to get back at them for some reason but I also think that you are right and she quickly saw $$$$ signs.
I watched a quick news update tonight on FOX and while they spoke about the court appearance today not a mention of someone shouting out anything in court. If that was said I would hope that the person was arrested and charges will be brought against them. I don't think you can get away with those kinds of threats, esp. when said in court in front of a judge.
>After almost daily appearances on national television, the family of the woman accusing three Duke lacrosse players of rape is being urged to take a lower profile.
The family has turned to local lawyer Mark Simeon, who said he plans on cutting off the family's frequent statements to the media and appearances on national television. "It's created problems," Simeon said. "They have been inadvertently hurting their daughter."<
Nah, ya think? Dang, just when things were starting to get fun someone stuffs a sock in their big greedy mouths.
Greta discussed this on her show tonight. She was in the courtroom and was disturbed by the shouting & threatening type comments. Her guest Woody Vann said that Judge Stephens will keep a tight lid on this type behavior.
We shall see.
Members of the New Black Panthers, who were in the audience, had shouted derogatory comments such as "justice will be served, rapist" toward Seligmann while the suspect was heading into court.
I was watching Greta's live report when she came out of the Court room. She was talking about the man who was sitting behind Seligman in court who told him "You're a dead man walking"...... pretty scary.
According to the defense paperwork no toxicology tests were run on the AV.
None were included with the paperwork handed over to the defense today.
She also told several conflicting stories to investigators about the rape.
"Regarding the 1,300 pages of evidence, sources told FOX News that the accuser allegedly did not tell the officer who met her at a supermarket after responding to a 911 call that she had been raped. Later, the woman told a doctor at a mental health facility that she had been sexually assaulted. She later denied that claim to a police officer when she arrived at the Duke hospital for care.
At least two sources also said there may be a discrepancy in the number of men the accuser says were involved."
According to the article she also originally told them that her dance partner was with her in the bathroom when the rape occurred.
She also admitted to having sex with 3 other men close to the time of the rape after DNA found inside of her didn't match any of the accused. One was her boyfriend two others were men who drove her to her dancing jobs.
And how about this bombshell:
"According to the sources, the papers handed over by Nifong also reveal that the forensic nurse who did a gynecological exam on the accuser did not find abrasions, tears or bleeding in the vaginal area, which is often present in forcible rapes. They say she did find swelling in the vaginal area along with tenderness in the accuser's breasts and lower right quadrant."
So she was swollen? After having sex with at least 3 other men in recent days that she admitted too and probably was ovulating which would explain tender breasts and tenderness in the ovarian area. This is their physical proof of rape? Good Lord! When is a judge going to step in and have a talk with this DA?
Is there ANYONE who can say with a straight face that they believe there is enough evidence here to point to a rape? Anyone????? This has become a joke. I'd like to know how Nifong plans on presenting this 3 ring circus in court. Is he going to have to keep pinching himself or biting his cheek to keep from bursting out laughing?
Good Lord, from what I have read the woman worked for an escort service called "Bunnyholes". She did private dances for men. From the document she had sex with at least four other men besides the "three" she mention. By the way, two of those men were her drivers. Unbelievable. How could Nifong take anything this woman said for gospel truth???????
All of this is on the CTV message board about the Duke scandal.
>How could Nifong take anything this woman said for gospel truth???????
He doesn't. He knows exactly what she is all about but it suits his purposes right now.
Nifong may have overplayed his hand.
I almost fell over last night when I heard that she slept with three guys that night. Why I'm surprised I can't tell you, but geezus what is Nifong thinking???????
He was thinking that this was going to be a high profile case that would get him name recognition and reelection. Just my opinion.
Well, he won election, but I'm thinking he's going to end up with name recognition that just may ruin the remainder of his career.
Three would be nothing. She also slept with four others that she did "private dancing" for. They are calling her an "escort/prostitute" on Fox in the news casts. Talk about sleeping your way through college. :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:
Seven???? No wonder Nifong is asking for a gag order.
