Normal Casey Anthony Court Hearing, Mon.,1/3/11/Hearing On EquuSearch Scheduled for Wed.,1/5 at 1:30

Post by lisette on Sun Jan 02, 2011 3:59 pm

Although numerous motions were filed by the defense on Thurs. and Fri., it is not clear which ones will be discussed tomorrow. I'm sure that the prosecution has to have time allotted to respond. And maybe JP will just toss them, if they are past the deadline to be heard. I think I read that any non-forensic motions had to be filed by Dec. 23 and heard by Dec. 31. That would include the history of lying and stealing, sexual history, tattoo, "Diary of Days", and Cindy's mySpace...These things would not be forensic evidence, so will JP let them slide on the deadline? We'll see. I think the hearing was originally scheduled to hear the state's motion on sanctions on Bozo, so no telling what will happen in the hearing tomorrow. Should be interesting.

Cheney claims that the motions that were filed on Dec. 30 could not be heard earlier b/c JP was on vacation last week. JP reminded him that he had offered to have a hearing at 5:00 on Dec. 23 or 24, but never heard from the defense.

JP is ruling...Says that he has reviewed what defense filed about expert witness and finds that it was willful neglect to obey court orders...Finds that sanctions are necessary...Expert witnesses must file written reports within 7 days. Opinions that are not included in reports cannot be testified to at trial. Cost of bringing this motion will be charged to Bozo personally.

I really think that Cheney thinks he is Matlock...He is reading from a blog in which they were talking about what they were saying at the counsel table last time...That shows that they do read these crime blogs...JP is reminding him that the mics have on/off switches. JP wants to know if they didn't know that the mic could be turned off. He suggests that they turn it off if they don't want what they are saying heard...LOL

Wrap, I think a Frye hearing is to determine the scientific reliability of certain evidence (in this case, the Body Farm research)..The name comes from Frye vs. somebody, a case that is used as a precedent...I think this is right...Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

video of Casey walking into court: (pushing bangs back over and over, straightening the collar, making sure the long hair is hanging over the shoulder to the front! Whateva!)
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Casey Appears In Court For Evidence Hearing
Casey Anthony is in court with her attorneys Monday to try to convince a judge to toss out key pieces of evidence in her trial. Last week, the defense filed several motions asking Judge Belvin Perry to exclude certain evidence, such as the traces of chloroform found in the trunk of Casey's car.
Casey walked into the court room at 1:26pm, wearing a long sleeve, blue top and gray slacks. Her hair was tied back in a pony tail. Casey's mother, Cindy Anthony, was in attendance.
The hearing began promptly at 1:30pm. The first motion heard was on sanctions filed by the state of Florida against Casey's attorneys for ignoring the judge's orders to provide specific information about defense witnesses' testimony.
Documents that needed to be filed by 12:00pm on December 14, were not filed until the next day.
"Why did he miss the deadline?" Judge Belvin Perry asked attorney Cheney Mason, referring to Casey's attorney Jose Baez.
At that point, Baez stood up to explain himself.
"Did you ask for a request, an extension of time?" Judge Perry asked Baez.
Baez replied that he did not.
"I don't think sanctions are appropriate in this case," Mason told Judge Perry.
However, the imposed sanctions against the defense and Jose Baez were held in contempt of court for missing deadlines on expert witnesses. Judge Perry said a fine amount is pending.
Judge Perry also said he must comply in seven days to get reports on expert witnesses. Anything not put in report or in deposition may not be used during trial.
The defense asked the judge to suppress some courtroom video and images by the media. Mason said he did not appreciate some of the the photos and video taken by the media and posted on websites. He claimed some images showed documents that weren't intended to be public.
Judge Perry decided not to suppress media videos and photos, but told Mason to move the defense table if necessary if he was worried about having the client-attorney rights violated.
The defense also wants to keep Casey's boyfriends, her alleged lies, what investigators found in her car, and about the shovel she borrowed from her neighbor the week Caylee disappeared, from the jury.
Casey told the neighbor she wanted to dig up bamboo roots in the yard that she was tripping over.
Her father George Anthony told detectives to have the cadaver dogs check two other spots in the yard where dirt had been recently turned.
Detectives asked Casey Anthony's boyfriends questions about their sexual relations, such as, was she clingy? Did she talk about Caylee? How many other boyfriends did she have?
The questions were asked when detectives were trying to figure out what happened to Caylee, where she was, and who her father is. The defense says the information is private and prejudicial and it will prevent her from getting a fair trial.
The defense doesn't want her father's statements about all of her lies to come into the trial and her history of stealing from her grandmother and mother.
The defense doesn't want the jury to hear Texas EquuSearch founder Tim Miller's statement that Casey was "about to mark on a map where the body was" but then changed her mind.
Court went into recess at 3:06 pm.
A status hearing set for January 10. At this point, Casey is not required to appear, but if there are new motions filed, and the judge agrees to hear them, she must be in court.

ANTHONY WANTS SEX QUESTIONS PROHIBITED AT TRIAL
Attorneys for Casey Anthony want a judge to prohibit testimony about her sex life with a witness during her murder trial.
Anthony's attorneys will make their request during a hearing Monday in Orlando. They have filed a motion asking that sex-related questions from an interview detectives had with Anthony Rosciano not be allowed during trial.
Detectives asked Rosciano whether Anthony was "clingy" when she had sex, whether they used protection, whether Anthony had any sexually transmitted diseases and where they had sex. Defense attorneys say the questions are irrelevant.
"The defense has an obligation to try to keep as much of the prosecution's case out of evidence and away from the jury as possible," said WFTV Legal Analyst Bill Sheaffer.
The prosecution also wants sanctions filed against Casey's attorneys for ignoring the judge's orders to provide specific information about defense witnesses' testimony.
Anthony is charged with first-degree murder for the death of her 2-year-old daughter Caylee. She has pleaded not guilty and says a baby sitter kidnapped Caylee.
Her trial is scheduled to begin in May.

DEFENSE WANTS CASEY'S MYSPACE POSTINGS TOSSED OUT
Casey Anthony’s defense team filed motions late Thursday to keep the jury from hearing key evidence that was collected before Caylee's body was found. WFTV reporters reviewed hundreds of pages Thursday night.
In the documents, Casey’s attorney's, J. Cheney Mason and Jose Baez, requested to have nearly two dozen items tossed out.
One of those items is the tattoo Casey got two weeks after Caylee disappeared, which reads "bella vita" which is Italian for "beautiful life."
The defense also doesn't think the shovel Casey borrowed from a neighbor, traces of chloroform found in the trunk of Casey's car, and a stain found there are relevant.
Baez is also asking the judge to exclude any and all cadaver dog search results, during the time the dogs were looking for Caylee's remains.
Casey's lawyers also want to get the judge to limit or exclude evidence taken from Casey and her mother Cindy's Myspace pages.
Cindy posted a message on the social networking site titled, "My Caylee is Missing," twelve days before she alerted the Orange County Sheriff's Office.
She went on to say "jealousy" took her granddaughter away, and her daughter, Casey, betrayed her and stole her money.
The defense is also trying to keep jurors from hearing about a message that Casey wrote, stating "Everyone lies, everyone dies and life is never easy."
WFTV legal analyst Bill Sheaffer said the defense isn't doing anything surprising.
Sheaffer said the defense is doing what it is supposed to be doing and trying to weaken the case as a whole.
Casey Anthony's lawyers also don't want a jury to see her reaction to Caylee Anthony's remains being found, according to a motion WFTV obtained Thursday. Her reaction was caught on camera from inside the Orange County jail.
Caylee's remains were discovered in December of 2008. Casey was watching coverage about the discovery and became visibility upset, according to officers.
Her lawyers filed a motion late Wednesday to suppress the video. They say her reaction is not relevant and that cameras were rolling as part of a set up.
Prosecutors say the defense has ignored the judge's order to provide specific information about defense witnesses' testimony.

CASEY DEFENSE FILES MOTION TO KEEP STICKER EVIDENCE OUT
Evidence that could link Casey Anthony to her daughter's murder could be thrown out of court. Casey's defense team filed a new motion Wednesday to try to keep jurors from hearing evidence regarding a heart-shaped sticker.

The sticker was found with Caylee Anthony's remains and similar stickers were found at the Anthonys' home on Suburban Drive.
Casey's defense says the evidence of residue from the sticker on the duct tape was destroyed in FBI testing and hasn't been recovered. Since they say the evidence doesn't exist, allowing it in court would prejudice the jury against Casey.
In the murder of Caylee Anthony, the small heart-shaped sticker is one of the most memorable pieces of evidence.
The evidence was found with Caylee's remains and later, an FBI investigator found residue in the same shape of the heart on duct tape that was wrapped around her mouth.
"Yes, that's going to be an emotional issue with the jury," WFTV legal analyst Bill Sheaffer said.
Sheaffer said it is key since it could connect Casey to the murder because similar stickers and sticker backings were later found in the Anthony home.
The defense even calls it "phantom heart sticker evidence." An FBI fingerprint examiner found the residue on that duct tape, using a technique called super glue fuming.
But testing destroyed that evidence. The defense quoted the investigator as not being able to confirm the residue was from a sticker, saying, "What I saw could be a sticker. It could be anything."
The defense team argues it shouldn't be allowed since the evidence no longer exists and its experts can't examine it.
However, Sheaffer believes it will likely be allowed.
"My opinion, this is a matter of weight and credibility, not so much a matter of admissibility," he said.
If admitted, he expects the defense will tell the jury the evidence shouldn't be given any credibility since it can't be reproduced. But if it's not allowed, it won't make or break the case because there it's just one piece in a whole chain of circumstantial evidence.

Frye Hearing:
State Supreme Courts require a minimum threshold of reliability and acceptance in the scientific community for all medical and similar evidence to be admitted at trial. In Florida and some other states, the courts adhere to what is known as the Frye standard, whereas in most states and in Federal Courts, it is the so-called Daubert standard. The jurisdiction of the present case is Hillsborough County (Tampa), Florida. Forensic pathologists seldom, if ever, are requested to participate in such hearings, unlike their toxicological and basic science colleagues who are more involved in research methodology and technical procedures. The burden is on the proponent of the evidence to prove the general acceptance of both the underlying scientific principle of the test and procedures used to apply that principle to the facts of the case at hand. The trial judge has the sole discretion to determine this question and general acceptance must be established by a preponderance of the evidence. The authors describe in detail a hearing in a case in which they were all involved. One author (WQS) had researched and documented the original scientific methodology in the literature. The situation involved a car and tractor trailer crash with the two occupants of the car dying of multiple trauma, whereas the truck driver was not injured. Autopsy of the auto driver revealed multiple injuries with exsanguination, and only vitreous humor and liver tissue, but not blood, were tested for ethyl alcohol. The estate of the driver of the automobile brought suit against the owner of the trucking company for wrongful death. The plaintiff requested a Frye hearing to question the reliability of testing other body specimens to translate to probable blood alcohol level. The testimony, submitted documents, and eventual decision by the judge are discussed

So George is still a no-show - I doubt he will ever come again to a hearing. I wonder if he is working?
I also wonder if he will show up for the trial.

Art, thanks for the "Frye Hearing" explanation. I have my own explanation of the "Frye Hearing". Electric Chair

I think George HAS to be in court to testify but other than that, I wonder if he will be. Also, I wonder if Lee will be there everyday. I say NO.

Judge Perry calls defense lack of response "willful"
I hope he fines Baez $500.00 a day - as Baez maintained to the Judge that he is only getting about $3.00 a day to defend Casey! Wow, to say that in front of your client like its a penance to have to defend her now! Not so much fun now, is it Jose!


ORLANDO, Fla. -- Judge Belvin Perry sanctioned Casey Anthony's defense team at a status hearing in the case on Monday.

Prosecutors argued in a motion that Anthony's defense team has not met deadlines or requirements set forth in a court order regarding defense expert witnesses.

IMAGES: Hearing Held Monday

"The defense has for whatever reason decided that they will do discovery their way and that this court's orders mean nothing to them," said prosecutor Jeff Ashton.

Perry said the defense must comply with the order and agreed that the defense's violation of the deadlines was "willful."

Ashton suggested that a charge of civil contempt and fines of up to $500 per day were appropriate.

Instead, Perry said the defense will be fined in an amount equal to the state's cost for bringing the motion for sanctions.

The state will have to determine such an amount and submit paperwork to the court before Perry issues a final order on the amount of the fine.

Perry went on to discuss more than 20 defense motions that mostly relate to evidence in the case.

The motions ask that the court not allow specific items be presented as evidence when Anthony's murder trial begins in May.

The evidence in question includes Anthony's reaction when her daughter's remains were found, MySpace pages, a heart-shaped sticker found with the remains of Caylee Anthony and several other items.

Perry only ruled on the evidence motions to which the state said it would not file a response.

Casey Jib Jab Video
Prosecutors said they had no intention of using a Jib Jab monster mash video that features Casey Anthony during the trial.

"We're not going to be utilizing that," prosecutor Linda Drane-Burdick said.

The state said it plans to file responses to the defense's stance on several motion before Perry issues a ruling. Several other motions will require a separate hearing to determine if the science behind the evidence is reliable enough to be presented at the trial.

Drane-Burdick argued that many of the defense motions regarding evidence should have been filed by Nov. 30.

Perry said that he will hear the motions, but again reminded the defense that they are on a short leash. He suggested that Ashton's idea of civil contempt would be his next step.

"Deadlines mean deadlines, folks," Perry said.

Perry also said on Monday he would soon be discussing details of jury selection with those involved in the case.

Last year, the court ruled that an out-of-town jury would be brought in for the trial. While the trial will take place in Orange County, jury selection would still take place wherever the jury is selected from.

Perry said hotel rooms would either be booked for attorneys under assumed names, or he would issue a gag order in the case and require attorneys to use assumed names when making reservations.

Bozo is in way over his head. There is no doubt in my mind now that he is totally incompetent. And I thought Mason had a pretty good reputation, but he doesn't seem to be doing too well, either. Poor KC. Sarcasm
