good start by the defense in closing. what did GP lose? Not just an afternoon of skiing. She was in love, first opportunity for two family's to spend together, to see if they could blend this into one family. Missed out on bonding with her now step children.
Lost it because he hit her. he hurt her. And then he asked for 3 million dollars for the pleasure. (very well prepared this closing in sharp contrast to Plaintiff's closing MOO)
You are lady justice, why blindfolded, is she blind, nope she's smart, she's not distracted by chaos of media sympathy for TS, etc. The scales of justice means a preponderance of the evidence. The daughters, his life is laid open, HE HIT HER! HE HURT HER!. easier to have written a check and been done with it. Well what does that teach her kids? That would be wrong.
My wife said don't waive the dollar so I'm not waiving the dollar. dead even tie means neither wins anything, but this is not even close. Burden of proof is theirs and that is evident because they get the last word. That's what we do when someone has a burden of proof. GP did not leave the scene of the accident without providing contact info. press conference 4 years ago king kong came out of the jungle brushed off and went away.
Spoilation, if TS destroyed evidence you can assume it is bad for them. TS owned a go pro. Shae got off the phone with the understanding that he had video. no one has the go pro, but if you find that he had a video you can conclude it was helpful to GP and wouldn't' be nice to have around.
We heard a week of testimony about his brain and how he thinks, he likes attention, he likes the spotlight. does it make you uncomfortable? makes me uncomfortable. Gibby says he has great relationship with his daughters. Gibby didn't even know the third daughter existed. because she wants nothing to do with him.
It's not about the dollar. It's about ruining a very delicate time in a relationship when they are trying to blend a family.
(Owens has a good flow here, he is knocking it out of the park MOO)
Since plaintiff did Owens is also walking through how he would like to see the verdict forms completed (this is so bizarre to me)
