No. Society pays the price for that.
Wait, wait, wait! I am totally confused now (and I have been reading all day, keeping up!)
Is there a pristine undamaged copy of the HD safe in the evidence room?
This is crazy. Shady PI was probably paid by the art and eyeglass donations and purposely compromised the hard drive. moo I hope the DT just accepts the fact that they have nothing.
There is but it's from 2008. It was helpful in determining that Travis' computer had Spybot which would prevent virus sites from being accessed but not so helpful in determining what was the cause of the deletions and verifying what the defense has found.
It's sealed, as far as I can tell.
Agree. If they're smart they won't press the issue and will just drop the matter. But knowing Nurmi, he'll push it until the judge rules against him, which she will.
Well, once they see Juan in motion they will realize Nurmi is just a cheap knock off. They'll know the real thing, Juan, when they see it.
WANTED: Defense attorneys, mitigation specialists, expert witnesses, and private investigators for capital murder trial in Maricopa County, Arizona. Great money making opportunity! Must be shady and incompetent, with patience of Job and willingness to ruin career and reputation. Shameless, loathsome and/or shrill individuals preferred. Thick skin a definite plus.
Effective professionals with integrity and decency need not apply.
Isn't that convenient. Watch Nurmi say it was still JM's fault for not demanding Nurmi hire a better expert. :sigh:
He's still going to blame Juan for not "protecting the evidence." Sigh....
Blah blah blah, please send the killer to prison. Who cares about the killer. RIP Travis.
Ah well, we know "a" hard drive was picked up by PI. No other hard drive has been mentioned, so it's just one. We know the DT had Travis' harddrive. It stands to reason that the hard drive the PI picked up was Travis', right?
He certainly will. :gaah:
Yes, because Nurmi is saying it is.
I also might be misremembering. I think it's not that Nurmi was asking for the lap top, it's that he wanted more time to begin trial because the computer expert was still examining Travis' laptop. I think that's what I'm thinking of.
I think you're right, MeeBee.
In any event, I do believe Nurmi has been taken in by a scheming sociopath. Perhaps now he knows how Travis felt.
Thank you, Mee Bee
I totally get spybot removing the viruses (I, too have spybot on my laptop). I get that part.
I guess I just don't get all this secret squirrel nonsense about turning over a "wrong" hard drive. I don't know what it's supposed to achieve?
Didn't she mention a hard drive in her last motion to kick Nurmi to the curb? IIRC she did, and it was TA computer she spoke of. But in the event I have my handwritten-by-the-killer-herself documents confused, please ignore me.
Reminds me of that time I accidentally handed in a copy of War and Peace in my freshman English class. Boy was I embarrassed!
The only thing it was supposed to achieve was to cover for that fact the expert did not make a mirror image like they should have. What it ended up doing is highlighting that fact and making the defense look bad.
