Jose Baez’ request to meet privately with Judge Strickland DENIED

April 1, 2009

Judge Strickland has refused to meet privately with Jose Baez to discuss the defense request to keep their strategy secret.  Bumbling Baez filed his request in the WRONG case file, so there was a lot of confusion at first.  Once it finally made it to Judge Strickland’s office it was turned down flat.

In Strickland’s order denying the motion, he said Baez’ request to discuss sensitive matters off camera was just not possible as a part of a particular Florida Criminal Rule.

That rule says an “in camera” inspection” and “ex parte proceeding” are not the same and the ex parte proceeding is only proper where permitted by law.  No legal authority has been provided to allow such a hearing under the circumstances of Baez’ motion.

read about it below:



Shouldn’t he have known this before he filed his request?  Where’s Linda Kenny-Biden?  Isn’t she a seasoned attorney and wouldn’t SHE  have known this?  Maybe she wouldn’t if this is just a Florida rule.  I wonder if his law student’s are gonna start wanting their money back from the college?

    I think the motion has something to do with Kiomarie Cruz. From what I read she was giving a depo when he filed the motion. And by listening to Baez walking into the court house he is getting all he can to get to the truth, I thought he knew the truth that Casey is not guily

    If Baez….. oops BUMBLING BAEZ (I like that) ~ mystery.,
    really believes that his client is 100% innocent then he should be shouting from the rooftops how criminal it is to keep a woman locked up for 8 months who has done absolutely nothing wrong!!! He wouldn’t be requesting secret little hideaway meetings that the defense is uninvited to.
    This whole case is based on just using COMMON SENSE. The actions and evidence point to one person *Casey Anthony.

    Hi, Everyone.
    Yeah, you would think Baez or someone on his defense team should have known this before, unless it’s an attempt at some kind of a public relations ploy. If it is, it’s a dumb move.

    But I’m glad Judge Strickland denied the motion or motions.
    Hurrah! 😀

    Yeah, I can’t wait to hear the defense’s theory, Las Vegas. It oughta be a doozey!

    Diana–You’re right. Common sense also says if he actually did have proof that Casey was innocent, he would have paraded that info in front of the media and LE months ago, the right person would be arrested, and Casey would be free to get back to her party pals. He’s digging for something to build a case on and I don’t see how he’s going to be able to pull it off.

    detwill I’m sooo glad that Strickland seems to NOT be a star-struck kind of judge. I’ve seen some pretty scary judges (I’m thinking OJ’s Ito and the judge in the Anna Nicole trial) that were more interested in their 15 min of fame than in getting to the truth.

    Los Angeles Surely he didn’t do this on purpose. He’s already been labeled an idiot. And I agree, KUDOS to Judge Strickland!!!

    I bet a first year law student would do better than Dumbo has in this case..there is no excuse for him to make these kinds of mistakes..this is the law and is up to him or one of his clerks to research how to write and file the motion…to know the law!!
    I wouldn’t let this man represent me in a jaywalking case!!
    What a fool..a comedy of can only imagine what his peers are saying? He gives attorneys and the law profession a bad name.
    KC should be thinking long and hard about this man..if she thinks she even has a chance it sure as hell won’t be with this misinformed ASS.

    Yes. KUDOS to Judge Strickland. I’ve been looking for an email address or some kind of contact info for him as I’d like to send him my encouragement and thanks for treating this case with the respect that it deserves. But I can’t find any so far. Still looking.

    I think the judge has had it “up to the eyeballs” with Bozo’s bull.

    I thought everything had to be disclosed…..from the prosecution AND the defense. Why would Bozo feel he could keep his info private while the prosecutors have to release theirs?

    I don’t believe Bozo really knows what his defense will be….I think he is still waiting on some miracle witness to fall from the sky.

    I think you’re right Patti. Bozo’s trying to make it seem like he has some secret deal-breaking information when in fact he has NOTHING by way of defending his murder suspect. Nada. Zero. He ends up only showing us how just how bloody incompetent he is. Keep smiling for those cameras big boy. Should invest in some brown undies for the days ahead, moron.

    Mand–I think Casey thinks he’s a great lawyer. He’s convinced her of that. Plus SHE chose him, not her mother. That meant something to her.

    Bees Knees-I’ll see if I can find an address or email address for his office.

    lunitic–He does think he’s entitled–He’s been drinkin’ the Casey Koolaid and is infected with the Casey Ebola Virus–one of the symptoms is a sense of entitlement.

    So Baez’ secret strategy is–to pretend he has a secret strategy!!

    Hahahaha, the bumbler strikes again. Does he have any idea what this looks like when he does these things? And he has the nerve to smirk all the time in court! He does always seem to start filing useless motions when new evidence & documents come out though. I know he has the dvd of the duct tape which was just released. He must be scrambling again looking for something to hold on to.

    mystery – check your email

    Mand..are you suggesting that KC is capable of thinking?..I didn’t know that part of her anatomy contained brain cells!{my bad :mrgreen: } Don’t forget that she only has contact with Bozo & his team {even though I believe she is using his lap top to contact the Ants.} Our bumbling idiot will only feed her what he wants her to know..I think that is why Judge Stan insisted she be present at every hearing.

    The Orlando Sentinal said that Bozo will try a slightly different tactic…hope he makes a twit of himself again 🙄

    Thanks for the updates Mystery.
