The judge has to delay it in order to see how much bribe money he can get from the S.O.B.

This is a bombshell and a major victory for the Enterprise. For one thing the jury is going to forget things and lose the continuity of the prosecution's case. On the defense side, all they need to remember is a point of error or doubt presented during the presentation. The Thanksgiving holiday break only adds to the mix.

The bottom line is that further delays will open the door to a mistrial without prejudice.

Judge Edmunds is pretty straight laced. She has tried to move this trial along starting by cutting off the time for jury selection. This is why this additional delay is surprising. It's a one shot deal. If Evelyn can't get off the ropes and back on the job, this iteration of the case is over.

This attorney is like a shooting star, a super nova. He's so intense he forgets to sleep. He forgets that he has never been this old before too. He burned himself up with a sprint when the finish line is months away. How smart is that? These moguls are supposed to be so intelligent. When it comes to basics like sleeping and tying one's shoes, they sometimes can't do what most of us can.

Wake me when it's over.
