The suppression hearing involving Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s three college friends continues in the Federal Courthouse in Boston today.
Tuesday’s session brought forth some interesting information.
Wednesday’s session was intersting and at times farcical.
Judge Woodlock flashed a little personality on Wednesday when he displayed displeasure with defense counsel for “rhetorical flourishes” and then said this hearing should be like “a yankee meal – serve it cold and slice it thin. ”
Patricia Wen tweet: “Def. Atty says a sign of Dias’ poor English is that, when he went to police bathroom & asked by agent if going “1 or 2″ Dias was clueless.”
Laurel J. Sweet tweet: “Kadyrbayev and Tazhayakov kept a lizard as a pet and offered to let FBI agents play with it. They declined.”
Thursday the hearing continues. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s friend, Dias Kadyrbayev, is scheduled to testify. It should be must see twitter. In particular, I am interested in learning what his current feelings are towards Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
Unfortunately, before Dias Kadyrbayev could testify, the hearing was suspended as a consequence of an expert witness being unavailable.
AP is reporting that Judge Woodlock has denied Robel Phillipos and Azamat Tazhayakov bid to suppress their statements. Dias Kadyrbayev will have an opportunity to offer more evidence in few weeks.
Here is a good factual review of the hearing through the time it was suspended
