Wonder if he thinks all this new information is junk science as well and will do a 360o spin on his own words.
Attorneys, unless they are really smart, cannot just go out and try a case like this, where was his probationary period on all of this? This dude has no experience, he has a big yap tho'.
the Ants will scream Mistrial, if they ain't in the pokey as well by then

I have read several places that Casey was given Baez's name by someone she was in jail with the first time. It is my understanding that he was kinda hanging around the jail looking for clients. Caught him a big one, huh?

Now it is clear why he is holding on so tightly to Casey; it is his shot at the big time. Going to trial will make an even bigger name for himself. Just like Casey, he has written his own version of his past. THey are a match made in hell.

Unpaid debts, writing bad checks, lies to cover sordid and illegal activity...the only thing that keeps Baez from being Casey's identical twin is he didn't off his only child. He just apparently failed to support her for years. It's no wonder these two are so tight!

She has to have someone to represent her. I wonder what would happen if a person in her situation would do if no one wanted to represent them? Doesn't seem strange if they will make a lot of money & fame. But what about court appointed that have to take cases they really don't want?

I did not realize that there were any eticcs and character qualifications to pass and be admitted to the Fl Bar. I thought only a test had to be passed. Since it seems that everyone I know has been screwed over by attorneys I assumed no one gave a damn about atttorney ethics. 4205

Not only is there a prior relationship between Baez' daughter and Casey, Casey is also reported to have worked for Baez at one time.

The fact that this man appeared in court after weeks of possession of the Target and BA security tapes, and after weeks of "going over the case with his client" for 8 hours a day for six weeks and admitted to the judge that "he didn't have a chance to view the tapes" when the content was printed in every newspaper and shown on every TV station is reprehensible and disrespectful.

Judge Strickland had Bozo's # from the word go.

With ethics like these, Baez should run for Congress!
