    Agreed LC5, it did happen. I just hope it was sanctioned by defense.

    Given the potential jury’s overwhelming assumption of his guilt, it wouldn’t matter if he came in dressed like Don Draper, sat with the patience of Job and held the charm of James Bond.

    That there’s funny OM, thanks for the chuckle. And I totally agree with what you say here.

    Thanks knowlyn. I don’t have that with me now but can share it here later today. Guess that info would be interesting as well.

    I’d like to post some juror stats for those of you who don’t follow Twitter and who are not keeping track. We all know the jurors are heavily in favor of guilt, connection and dp as reported on defense’s motion. But here are a few numbers maybe not mentioned. 98 jurors interviewed in 7 days [...]

    You are one tough nut, OG. I get your point and your opinions are from the attorney side. Many of these comments are more parental or non-legal view points. Everyone is correct, of course, just vary in opinions. Who can really say how DT is feeling? Maybe he has a little A.D.D., or maybe some [...]

    Agreed jane. I think he’s doing pretty well for his age and considering he must be bored. Although today I think he was playing with some post-it notes. It’s also interesting to hear that he seems to have a spring in his step, “jumping” up from his seat and immediately ripping his jacket off once [...]

    Thanks for this link Provelt. It mentions juror 116 who didn’t realize “not guilty” was a choice. When I first read tweets about this juror, I knew right then she was serious, which is scary. I believe this juror really thought DT’s guilt had been determined or proven already. She said to O’Toole, “because YOU told us we were choosing between life and death.” [...]

    Indeed jane24, and I should have worded my reply a little differently. :-)
    O’Toole is certainly not the puppet master, and probably not even Ortiz, although, imo, Ortiz pulls O’Toole’s strings. Now, who the actual master is we may never know.

    Thanks for the post WB, tweeted and recommended. Yes O’Toole continues to be an embarrassment to our justice system. Wouldn’t he appear to be the better judge if he actually ruled in a neutral manner every time? His name would certainly go down in history if he did, and in a good way. And jane24@1 [...]

    Juror 116 says DT is guilty because “he was there … he was on the street … he was in the boat,” so I assume he’s guilty she says. “Not guilty is not a choice … because YOU (judge) told us we were choosing between life and death.” No matter how you feel about this [...]

    I noticed during the interviews, several reporters tweeted that DT (at least two different times) poured Miriam Conrad a glass of water. I would like to think this young man has that courtesy built in, but do you suppose this was “staged” by defense, in order to help make him look less like a demon [...]

    It hadn’t occurred to me that within all the tweeted interview comments, there was not one juror who said, “I don’t think he did it.” (Thanks MB31) I imagine if there were such a person, he would probably be afraid to speak it out loud.

    Breaking News: (maybe to some people) Tweets say court officials have determined that the January 26 start date is unrealistic, jury selection taking too long. Openings will NOT be on Monday.

    Thank you all for the comments! This is some great information. I’d like to particularly thank MS @7 & 25 and OG@22 for your legal comments. I really do appreciate your knowledge! I’d like to share a few stats from the first 4 days of juror interviews. I get this info from reporters’ tweets and note [...]

    Thank you all for your comments. Of course you are all correct. It must be frustrating for the defense trying to read some of these potential jurors.

  • Judge George A. O’Toole said to defense attorney Miriam Conrad:   I’ll make you a believer .  We know, of course, he was referring to the start of the trial, but I wonder … Was he was really referring to having things his own way, rushed and hurried?  This appears now to apply O’Toole’s determination to seat [...]

    I’m not sure which reporter, but one of them tweeted that it was Bruck’s suggestion/recommenadtion to rotate the reporters in two at a time in between breaks to keep the trial public. Although I can’t find these exact words tweeted, I did find where Alysha Palumbo tweeted right after the hour-long sidebar on Friday that the sidebar was [...]

    This was my first impression, WB, that O’Toole wanted to protect himself. When it was said that O’Toole was extremely concerned how the jurors are portayed by the media, I believe it is himself he is more concerned about.
