Judge going to come out around 12:15 to talk about his decisions
Judge Samour notes he is limited in timing. "this is not my doing. this is the party's doing"
Judge is referring to a case ruling out of Washington (captions he is reading here are not from this case)
@debitwo: Sorry charlie, signal strength is in the green here though
Judge Samour citing case law that attorneys cannot unfairly denigrate experts
Our legal expert thinks this is a preamble to siding with the prosecution
@NT8: I think we're going to go to the replay I mentioned earlier, so we have a chance to eat too
Judge's quotations done for now. He'll address the objections next
- Judge's Order
Judge Samour says first batch of objections includes "he deceives everyone" and judge says that is problematic because the evidence doesn't reflect that. Also because it appears to be general attack on character. That slide will be taken out
- Judge's Order
Judge Samour will allow other slides from that first objection, because they are specific examples of the deceptions the DA is arguing about
"He did things to make people believe he was doing one thing when in fact he was doing something else. that's the definition of deceit, isn't it?"
Next objection involved slides about Drs Hanlon and Gur, but judge says he might have missed the page
Judge says he'll allow statements about defense expert witnesses who made changes to standard procedures
Judge's next subject is about defenant's "impression management" and he says that objection doesn't bother him
