JM just rested. He did OK, but spent a lot of time trying to rehabilitate DR DM's half assed work. Dr Geffert held up well.
Dr Drew now on, bad mouthing Dr Geffert, but made an interesting remark as to the Jury actually liking him.
Wow, Dr Drew's panel badmouthing Mr Martinez, surprised to hear this from them. Mentioned that JM was coming off as a bully and was more of a destraction in arguing about stuff like page numbers.
I do not care for most of these panels. They are just trying to hedge their bets, since early on they claimed it was a slam dunk.
La you have to be kidding us, this was the worst expert yet. He really had nothing to add but getting paid to discredit DR, Demarte. He is boring. While I believe that he is an expert, he didn't even talk to Jodi. I am sure there will be another expert that agree's with her diagnois. Psychology is just guess work with nothing but opinions to back it up.

One more thing on Dr. Gefferd, when you use "Just for Men" on your hair, do the mustache. It is distracting.

It was about the half ass testing by Dr DM .. according to Dr Geffner, she apparently failed in her testing model, incomplete.
If you are currently listening to the juries questions to him, it is apparently they are giving him some degree of credence.

I know Lex, defies logic as to not interviewing her, but apparently this is one is about the testing procedures. Dr
DM apparently did not even know about some critical aspects
of standard testing. Hope, you are listening to this this
part of his testimony.

Lex, I would not recommend you wager even one day's salary on a
First Degree conviction.

He is not even getting paid directly...funds going to a non profit institute he is associated with.

Goodmorning Lover, time to wake up:)

Dozzed off for awhile, but my TV was still on
and awoke at 10:30 PM and the trial was still
going, went on to about midnight.

If this Judge had just ran the court some 30 minutes extra every day, or did not close for business just one extra Friday, this unheard of
marathon session would have not been necessary.

Mr Martinez's last wit was a Dr Jill Hayes, to
rebut Dr Geffner and also rehabilitate DR DeMarte.
Dr Jill Hayes, when pinned down by Ms Wilmont,
admitted to an irregularity in DM's resume.
Oh, and as to one of those outdated tests she
used, the new edition, the one she did not pur-
chase, sold for about a paltry $200 bucks

Martinez will prob keep Dr Jill Haye's number on his Rolodex. She was a pro, same as to Dr Geffner.

OK, Hun, today will be telling.

Much respect to Ms Wilmont and Mr Martinez, for their tireless efforts in this marathon session. Both went right down to the wire (12 Midnight).
Both stayed sharp and focused. All know that Mr
Martinez extraordinarily does his homework, but so has Ms Wilmont.

America is Great, both are a testament to our
educational system, opportunities, judicial system and much more.

Hi LG, good morning :)
I woke up around 7, went back to sleep... my left arm getting fatigued now- typing and basic activity, since my r arm is still sore :( not fun... may be another 5 days for real relief... my FF brother has offered to take care of the backyard weeds in a couple weeks, so nice, it's a big area for me, about 3500-4000 sq ft.* entire lot is 6000sq ft.
LG, I will never load up a huge extra large yard bag again; last year, I was fine doing everything from pruning to digging up big rocks. I'm going through running withdrawals :)
I will check back around 2 or 3 ... would rather be in here w/you, but I can't push it w/my left arm :(
re: your posts, agree on all, great writing, succinct, logical, as always :)

Judge giving jury instructions, including the options of 2nd Degree and Manslaughter.

Seriously doubt if this jury will concur as to
First degree...easy compromise for a 2nd degree and also look for a good possibility of a Manslaughter conviction.

This judge is even giving Aggravated Assault instructions

JA, oddly so, looks refreshed and is avidly following these instructions.

Mr Martinez just started his arguement, he's a very good contemporaneous speaker.

you are so very sweet, made my day :)
xoxo as long as they only talk to God :) it's His universe :)
my Mom did therapeutic touch on me, and I know how to do it, but I ask God for healing, not the universe, not ying yang... I tell her to ask God :)... my Dad did some pressure point, acupuncture and things like that. I have one of his electrical stimulator equipment treatments, can use it in a few days on the muscles...
I had a really gentle physical therapist, and Sac. Dr. Alan Hirahara shoulder doc * River Cats Team baseball doc and Sac State, years ago, I had a frozen shoulder L side... adhesive capsulitis, and he never forced any meds or a horrific cortisone shot on me... he's amazing, even paid for me to have extended PT, I found out later, because he said I was a rare patient to do the work :)
LG, you're so nice, ok now done :)
