    I wholeheartedly agree ocean blueeyes, I have been watching court cases since 1994 (argh, my age is showing), I will never forget my first, lol, Steven Baker Lucas killed his mother a Tyler Texas Socialite it was mesmerizing to watch the prosecutor in this trial, he was great, I was hooked.

    Never seen anything like this judge/courtroom drama/delays, etc, the word extreme comes to mind. This is really not a special case, this is not about sex, this is not about religion, this is merely just abbout a butchering fatal attraction bunny boiling jealous woman killer that could not handle rejection. How and why this all got out of hand is beyond comprehension.

    HolyMother of God...that Lucas trial was the VERY FIRST ONE I ever watched on Court TV. It was the trial that hooked me in to it (it was the retrial though right?). I know that case inside and out--including his pregnant daughter and her perfect lipstick (sad). I referred to him (to my husband at the time who I tortured with that trial) as the Pillsbury Dough Boy. I painted my entire family room watching that trial back when CTV showed things gavel to gavel with great commentary like Dan Abrams, etc. Wow...memory lane...

    PS I think it was one of the first or THE first trial to use that computerized animation of how they believed that "fall" occurred...and he was convicted, among other things, of not taking account a granny gown in to his fabricated story of how that went down! And a candle stick was involved!

    One or more of the journalists yesterday tweeted that CMJA mother left the courthouse after being punted from the courtroom. Is that now false and she was there? Nurmi had asked the judge for her to leave.

    I am confused!

    Makes more sense now. Jodi would not be speaking yet and no reason for her testimony to be blocked.

    We also know Jodi's alleged BFs and supporters have been showing up. Perhaps that's what they meant by needing to get back and they actually were there. But still made an assumption about Jodi maybe speaking.

    just got an email from Beth Karas who will be attending the 3pm hearing today about the media and reporting on it. I'll keep an eye on that and report back what I see (as I have the day off and I know how to use it wisely ;) ).

    Not to beat a dead horse as I keep whipping, but how can they be assured a public seat daily? They can't unless they are w/ the family or have a media pass. Just sayin.

    If opening statements are any indication, Nurmi is ratcheting up the child abuse angle this time. When I noticed tweets about the mom leaving court yesterday, I wondered if the "mystery" witness might not have something to do with testimony to that effect.

    Wow KCL, whoddathunkit, Lucas was both our first, lol. It was a retrial, IIRC trial was moved from Tyler Texas to Dallas, I too, know and remember the case very well, I too believe the computer animation was a first in a trial, seems primitive by todays standards, but nonetheless a very powerful visual demonstration back then.

    Arrghh...So much of what we have to go with is only speculation via Twitter... :facepalm: No wonder people are confused.

    Yes the engineering, like she was catapulted over that balcony not letting go of that VCR but hanging on to it for dear life (or in that scenario, death). Sorry OT people but that trial stuck to my mind like glue.

    I'm thinking along the same lines. Little bro or sis to corroborate her BS abuse claims. Ugh. So fed up with this whole fiasco!! I swore after Casey Anthony I would never allow myself to get so caught up again but here I am. Sigh.

    Thanks again to all posters and tweeters. And a round of applause for AZLawyer, KCL and the verified professionals who are sharing their wisdom.

    Some assumptions I think have been caused by "trial by twitter" and sealed court records:

    1. The assumption that Cheryl Karp asked to testify under a pseudonym, and that the request was granted. I have seen nothing to substantiate this assumption.

    2. The assumption that JM didn't object to the closed courtroom. Since the whole discussion happened at the bench, I don't think we know what his position was.

    3. The assumption that the witness insisted on a closed courtroom due to fear. I don't think we know this either, although obviously that's been a defense theme at other times.

    4. The assumption that Nurmi asked for JA's family to leave. I think this was a misinterpretation of a tweet saying that the family had to leave and "ironically, the motion came from Nurmi." I think the "irony" was that Nurmi asked for the public to leave without really thinking through that the "public" would include JA's family, which has no special right to be there.

    On other topics...

    No. And I think a lot of her ethics, intelligence, and usually her evidentiary rulings, but as you know I've had other criticisms.

    Or an undercover cop as the 12 news reporter mentioned, but that seems highly improbable.

    Only certain people are defined as "victims" in the statute.

    I don't think anyone thinks they can avoid appeal--the hope is to avoid a successful appeal. :)

    Only if the media's stay motion is granted. I understand JSS will hear the motion at 3 pm today. If she denies it, the media attorneys will run over to the AZ Court of Appeals and ask for the same thing.

    What kind of a person mocks the testimony of a victim impact statement from the sister of a murder victim?

    I cannot even wrap my head around it.

    I'm new to Twitter, just signed up to follow the trial. However, if I had to guess, I'd guess this mysterious tweeter is just taking real live tweeters tweets and rewording them, twisting them to suit her angles to make it seem like they are in the court room. If I get a new live tweet, I could easily reword what I just read and tweet the info myself, within 30 seconds, making it seem like I'm in there. Just another whack job, trying to make people, even her fellow whack jobs, believe she's in court
