Orman says his position hasn't changed, but Judge believes that Nelson's notes are sufficient to allow the paragraph to stay
OK, lets everyone take a deep breath. I allowed one comment on an opinion and others disagreed, so I had to allow those. I just want to remind you all to not let anger or frustration get the better of you. Insults at this point will result in bans, because I don't have the time to weed you out one at a time
Judge now discussing the mention of Dr. Fenton in the instruction, and his proposed change
Orman says he believes the proposed version is inaccurate
Orman says this paragraph is a "backhanded way of inserting an argument that is not supported by the evidence"
Nelson again reading from her notes in support of her position
- Judge's Order
Judge decides to sustain the objection from Mr. Orman about the last sentence to the paragraph. Agrees it is inappropriate for him to opine about the issue regarding the mental health hold statute
Judge says it is undisputed that Dr Fenton considered she didn't know the defendant had a planned target, and that will be allowed
"That is as far as the defense can go based on the extent of the evidence" judge says
Judge says there is no such evidence that Dr. Fenton had enough to lock up the defendant. Defense team can argue about that, but that is all he will allow
Judge indicated he was going to step down to finish these, come back to discuss the slides
