    Elle, which email are you talking about? Is this the one where Sky said she though Travis was treating Jodi badly?

    IMO this whole trial was only a game to JA after reading her plea and threat of what she would do.
    She decided to kill Travis and leave his body naked as pay back for his threat to expose her. If I had to guess her secret was one that was sexual in nature.

    All just MOO

    Someone help me out with KCL's post in the court observer's thread. What was the closed hearing about and why was the family happy?

    From what I read, Nurmi told the Hughes the letters were in Travis' own words and in his handwriting. Nurmi was "oh-so-sorry" to have to be the one to break it to them, blah, blah, blah.

    The Hughes were duped by the defense. When they found out, they came out very angrily.

    It wouldn't be the first dirty, underhanded trick the defense tried. Can you imagine if two of Travis' very good friends had testified "against" him out of some misguided attempt to rectify what they thought was their unfair treatment of Jodi? What a coup for the defense that would be!

    At least that's what it seems Nurmi was going for. And that fits with Jodi's MO of making herself into the victim. I'm sure it was an agenda she pushed.

    Just MHOO, of course.

    Closed hearing was about whether Juan could bring in a witness AFTER Nurmi's surrebuttal witness. Assume happy faces means the answer was YES :)

    Just dropping by for a minute. The dog is annoyed with me for ignoring him, so I don't know how long I can stay (he trashes the house when he's bored or wants attention).

    So, does the trial start at 9:00 a.m. tomorrow? And we're going to hear this new, uh, psychologist?

    How will Dr. H do on the stand, if called?
    In another case, a civil case, a few yrs. ago, she testified for R.J Reynolds.

    This clip is atty for the smoker (COPD, apparently)-plaintiff's cross exam of her (did not see direct exam).
    He raises questions --
    ---so, no matter what you say about cig's & addiction,
    it's still just an opinion.
    --- goes thru her 23pp CV/resume & her website,
    page by page, nothing about cigs, tobacco, addiction.
    ---asks about poss. consulting or testimony re other Big-Cig Trials in future.

    I watched just 40 min.

    She gets a wee bit defensive w. a few questions.
    If she takes stand in AZ, she may do a little better w. more experience since then..
    (By the offhand ref to New Orleans/Katrina, I take it this was recorded post 2005)
    But no where near as belligerent as Dr. Dick S. or Alyce LaV.

    IMO the justice system isn't perfect. I'll agree to that.

    But the basic principle of the burden of proof is the prosecutions role ..protects everyone. It's not about the truth of the matter... It's about what they can prove beyond a reasonable doubt in a courtroom.

    The sole job of the defense is to manufacture reasonable doubt by any means necessary within the bounds of the law. Once a defendant waived their 5th amendment and takes the stand.. What comes out of their mouth IS evidence.

    Evidence whether direct or circumstantial is assigned weight by the jury. They are the fact finders.

    I don't want to dismantle the justice system. I like it. It usually works.

    I know. This is one the biggest things that bugs me about this case is what did she do/say to Travis to anger him, just she can turn around and plan his murder?

    It's even worse the second time around! The biggest mistake the DT ever made was allowing the killer to take the stand. I don't think Stanislavski or Strasberg could help her - she is that bad. How the jury could contain themselves and not discuss her pathetic performance is a miracle. She cooked her own goose! (After I shot him, I didn't know I shot him, he kept lunging at me for a second and then he fell on me.) Guess she didn't notice the hole in his head and the blood oozing out! Puleeze!

    Sunny-

    Thank you for reposting Michael James' post.

    He is entitled to his opinion regarding the Hugheses, and other people who post respectfully are entitled to theirs.

    To MJ:

    I understand that the Hugheses may have friends and family members who read here. But the same might be said of Judge Stephens, or ALV, Nurmi, Willmott or the mitigation specialist. And yet we make fat jokes, play fashion police, criticize Her Honor's ineptness, I mean C'MON!

    Why is is fair game on those people but the Hugheses should be tiptoed about? They have made public statements to CBS and other outlets that have opened them up to conversation. I am one of those folks who can say I trust them about as far as I can throw them. As for SH's smirk, would anyone excuse the smirk on a defense witness? NO! It would be a character flaw! But because it's Sky, it's just "nerves"? I don't think so.

    Again, all opinions are welcome, but the pendulum swings both ways. The friends and families of ALL folks who have inserted themselves into this case have possibly read here. That's life. I have no wish to hurt anyone, but if the Hugheses are pained by honest, thoughtful opinions about their characters, then perhaps they should refrain from reading anything but fan mail until the case is decided.

    Nothing said here has been out of line.

    With respect,
    -Frayed

    IMO, it had to be something really bad to him. He was utterly betrayed and I don't think it had anything to do with thier sex life or sex tapes, he could have survived that betrayal...this was something worse.

    I feel you, I do. But the truth is this would have been a very different trial were the DP element gone. It's just a stretch for me to believe the whole system needs overhauling over one lying bimbo. Yes, she's insufferable, but let's not let her become something bigger than she actually is.
