Jose Baez gets snarky with reporter before today’s depositions

April 2, 2009

baez-gets-snarkySgt. Billy Richardson, a supervisor at the jail where Casey has been held without bond since October 14, was first to be questioned by Baez today.  Baez has made serious accusations that Sgt. Richardson and other jail officers violated her privacy, but he has not provided any evidence to show how that could have happened.  Sgt. Richardson didn’t want to answer questions when he showed up for his deposition. He said that Baez has based his accusations that jail officers had violated her privacy rights concerning  her medical records on false information.  The jail has stated that corrections officer’s do not have access to inmates’ medical records.

Baez is also trying to stop the jail video of Casey on December 11 when she found out a child’s body had been found from being released.  Officers stated that she hyperventilated and asked for medication.

Kathi Belich, reporter for WFTV News,  asked why he was blocking the video as it was done at a public facility.

“How can you argue with that?” she asked.

Baez said, “Well, I think we clearly laid it out legally in our motion with all of the different possible violations both constitutional as well as privacy issues.”.

“Possible violations? What do you mean possible violations?” Belich asked.

Baez told her to read the writ.  She said she had and he replied that she obviously had NOT because there was plenty of law there. She argued again that there was nothing there, and that’s when  things turned a little nasty.

“I didn’t see any legal basis for the argument,” Belich said.

“I’m sorry what law school did you go to?  You just made a legal argument, what law school did you go to?” Baez asked rather snarkily.  He then walked away.

Baez  has put off the hearing he asked for to convince the judge not to release the jail security video of Casey’s reaction on December 11, for some unknown reason. It has not yet been re-scheduled.

My, my, aren’t we pissy today?   And what law school did you attend, Mr. Baez?  Oh yeah, I remember now: “Dumbass  Academy for Bozos” You graduated with flying colors….

    He is a a##. He may need Kathi later to spin that theory that’s rolling around in his empty little head.

    He doesn’t understand the concept of not burning your bridges..

    Laura and itsa: Baez is also going to make enemies of the lawyers too. He’s a little idiot..

    He has no other choice than to act this way. Baez has nothing, NOTHING. Good evidence is stacked against Casey. In order not to be kicked off this case by his client, he has to take this stance. What else is he going to do? But I sincerely hope he doesn’t actually believe Casey’s probable stories about somebody else killing or kidnapping Casey. She’s probably saying that one of her friends did it.

    What a BIG FAT BABY BAEZ is. When he gets confronted….he runs away. Typical of a BIG FAT BABY

    Kathi Belich is one very smart lady. I enjoy hearing her comments on TV.

    As usual, Mr. Baez has shown his true colors. He really is a jerk (IMHO).

    Carol of Va.–You know it won’t surprise me if he does. They’ll start pulling out when they getta clue they’ve set sail on a boat with NO sails?

    Los Angeles–You are so right. He’s finally figured out that he’s gonna have to come up with something–so he’s going to depose every single witness on the prosecution’s list. He’s thinking he can surely get something from one or two of them that would back up his theory—oh wait, he doesn’t have a theory.

    Like Harriet said, she is one smart lady.

    I think the virus is progressing. New symptoms, not filing motions right, blaming it on someone in the office, arrogant attitude, mocking one’s opponent. He’s got it bad! LMBO!!! Worse than he thinks!!! I wonder if the Judge will site him with contempt at the trial???

    I agree mystery, I would have asked him the same question back. What law school did you go to? He obviously missed a few classes. lol How & when to file motions. And how to show respect in court. I knew he was a slimeball the day I laid eyes on him.

    And by the way, why is Conway (anthony’s lawyer) commenting in the media on this case? He made comments about kiomaria’s depo. Didn’t he state from day one that he only represents G & C & will not comment on Casey’s case. I guess he’s gotta get out there in the limelight too.

    He has a way of getting under your skin..he is a stupid man and I do believe does not know how to proceed in a professional manner..or any other way for that matter…he is lost so if he isn’t filing motions he is now taking depos…it’s like he’s learning as he goes along..his snide remarks are to make everyone think he is smart and not worried…when it’s himself he is trying to convince of that..we all know better. He has to know that his peers think he’s an ASS and he has no clue how to proceed…maybe that’s what he wants to tell the judge in private!!!

    Molly–I saw that about Conway. He’s trying to discredit Kiomarie because her testimony could potentially be particularly damaging to Casey. I imagine he’ll have something to say about all her friends. I think they would like to pin this on one of her friends.

    It’s on the job training, Mand!

    April 2, 2009 8:39 pm

    Baez will pin it on anyone he possibly can! I don’t care what they try to say about any of her friends, they’re young & partying (I don’t care what they’re doing)but none of them have a 2 yr old child to be responsible for who oh, by the way was supposedly “missing”. ! That will never stick, he’s fishing in the wrong pond. lol hahahahaha

    Methinks he got his “on the job training” during Casey’s 6 hour daily visits…his gums may be flapping but the words are coming from a different part of his anatomy!

    Rumour around some blogs is that Bozo & Maggot are going to say she was covering for Cindy…NOOOOOOooooooo way…Casey wouldn’t spend one day in jail if she thought she could throw Cindy under the bus…she is far too selfish.

  19. April 2, 2009 11:52 pm

    hey Ostella…..I’m go out on a limb on your last comment and take a wild guess hmmmmmm Maybe she is really Biaz…..and as far as blaming someone else I think they will go after Ricardo.. Crazy will probable say she was afraid of him and what he could do……Wasn’t he the xcop?

    Here’s a better question: What law school did BAEZ go to?!

    Answer: a BOTTOM-TIER law school (St. Thomas, ranked 182nd in a field of 185 US law schools).

    The LSAT scores of the student body at this school prove they are of BELOW-average intelligence – no reputable firm hires graduates of such schools.

    They end up working as solo practitioners in strip malls (just like Baez).

    Good Morning Mystery and All: I do not know why I continue to be surprised by anything that happens in this case. Jose Baez is going to burn every bridge and when he needs the media they will walk away just like he did.

    As far as Kio Marie, I remember the post from the friend. I don’t care what she did or who she sold her story to. Why is it such an issue when everyone on “Team Casey” is making way more than 20,000.00?

    I do find it funny that any friend of Casey’s who has something negative to say is immediately “dis credited” by the Anthony Family. Wasn’t Cindy the one who wanted all the friends to get together and make a timeline and discuss Casey’s actions? As far as Conway, what does he have to do with this?

    If Casey Anthony walks, Jose Baez will be to be blame. Not for his great legal maneuvers, but for his inept ways. I will say it again: If I was facing murder charges of my own child and I knew I was 100% innocent, I would not want this man in my corner. Of course, she is not innocent and no top notch lawyer is going to step up to defend her pro bono…

    YOU GO STRICKLAND!! God he has got to just shake his head daily at Baez.

    Brad Conway has become Cindy Anthonys puppet. Whatever comments he is making in the media (that are not about his clients) is coming straight from Cindy. What business is it of his what Caseys childhood friends are saying? Was he there?
    I actually liked him in the beginning but now that he feels the need to comment on something he knows nothing about puts him in a whole new light.

    Johnny..I had read that before but forgot the name of the school..thanks for reminding us of what an intellect Dumbo really is!!
    I wonder where he placed..grade his class?? Having to take the bar 3 times over a period of 8 years should tell us all he’s not the brightest bulb in the pack. Dumbo is out of his league in this case and he is showing it more and more. He should be working on his defense and as yet hasn’t a clue what it will be..instead he is taking depos of those that could come back to bite him in the butt..he is locking himself in a corner.He is all about motions and now depos..I don’t know what LKB is doing but it looks like he runs the show..he will not admit he needs help in putting this together..LKB looks like a fool..does she need money that associate with the likes of Dumbo?? He still goes around saying KC is innocent..and things like no one know KC…always so personal…she would have been so much better off with a public defender!!

    Gee, I would have loved to have been Kathi when that happened. I’d have smeared my best sneer across my face and asked him, “ARE YOU ALRIGHT?” Isn’t that what he did last week to Ashton? And it wasn’t the words, it was the delivery of them. Those three little words show a person’s character instantly. The taunting. The immature, cocky snark across his face, just BEGGING to have it slapped off.

    He’s nothing more than an immature, obnoxious ambulance chaser who does little but whine about the police, the media, LE, OCSD and the state’s witnesses. Welcome to the big time, Bozo! You’ve bitten off more than you can chew and now you have to swallow it. That, and your pride. Did you pick up your new brown underwear yet?

    Ya docdrop days are great when they’re juicy and smutfilled, but when they’re all fluff (like the last couple ones), they can be a bummer of a letdown…I have a good feeling about this next one though…Baez’ damage control routine this week makes me think somethin big is about to come out.

    About the other “choices” you posed: I think death should be listed as an option… 🙂

    Molly You are so right. Casey had more responsibilities than the rest of her friends. Say what you want about them all, but they weren’t parents.

    Jill I had heard that one and I agree with you. Casey would cover for no one. She’s only gonna cover for herself.

    Lynn– Ricardo is a distinct possibility but it won’t fly.

    Johnny-Thanks for reminding us of Baez’ esteemed alma mater. No wonder he jumped on the Casey Anthony bandwagon. He knows it’s his only chance to rise above the strip mall! LOL. Too bad it ain’t workin’ for him.

    halfpint I don’t really care that Kiomarie made money from the Enquirer–$20,000 is a lot of money to a young woman. She certainly didn’t owe Casey any loyalty. I just wish she had been more truthful about everything she said in her interview with LE. I think the fact that she said they buried their pets in a place not too far from where the Caylee was found and that that is where she thought Casey would bury her child if she killed her, is powerful–considering she said it months before Caylee’s remains were discovered.

    And, yeah–Conway needs to stop stomping on the witnesses. He’s speaking out of turn.

    Diana I feel the same way you do about Conway. He not only drank the Casey Koolaid, he drank the Cindy Cocoa–and he forgot to add the milk–He sounds as bitter as she does.

    Mand, I’m thinkin’ Linda Kenny Biden isn’t really going to come into play until the trial. Bozo won’t be able to be lead attorney there. I think he’s definitely running the show. Wonder if she’ll stick it out to the end or jump ship? This can’t be helping her own reputation. She’s probably thinking she can come in and save the day at trial and come out smelling like a rose.

  33. MAND permalink
    April 3, 2009 3:58 pm would think she would want to help lay the ground work since she will be lead at trial…of course I think that will be in name only..he will tell her what he wants her to do..and I do wonder if her ego is going to take a back seat to Dumbo..she has a lot more to lose than he does…and she does in a way reflect her husbands career as does his..hers..they are more or less a team..Dr. Boden may tell her to dump the jerk.

    Should be interesting to see. I know she’s supposed to be a really good attorney. I can’t imagine that she will be able to just sit back and let Bozo bungle it all. She’s got a whole lot more to lose than Baez, as you said.

    Personally……I feel Jose Baez is certainly doing his best to defend
    his client.. and above all he has put together an “outstanding team” of lawyers to defend her. On board now is Andrea Lyon one of the best
    lawyers this country has to offer with an outstanding background in the
    legal field. Baez has on his team…. the best there is to offer in defending this death penalty case.

    You can put Baez down all you want, but so far he is on top of the case and knows his case inside and out. He has been nothing but loyal
    to his client..which is his main concern as it should be. Some of the childish and unprofessional remarks about Baez are very uncalled for.

    The name calling, unkind unprofessional words being said about Jose Baez says a lot about YOU yourself. Baez is doing the best he can, and
    frankly despite your comments he IS doing a good job. IMO

  36. itsamysterytome permalink*
    May 30, 2009 6:20 pm


    I’m sorry, but I disagree with you. Baez is an inexperienced attorney that has no business trying a case of this caliber. If he were doing his job and really had his client’s best interests at heart, he would have stepped DOWN a long time ago and let someone with better credentials defend Casey Anthony.

    Mac: It’s going to take a lot than a bunch of finger pointing at this group to show that Baez is indeed the best man for this job. Doing everything he can for his client? How about doing everything he can to waste tax payer dollars, and doing everything he can to show his inexperience. He files a motion if someone looks at him crooked.

    In all actuality he is doing his client a great dis service by not stepping down. He cannot try a case of this calibur with his experience and yet he is not willing to give up his fifteen minutes of fame. So no he is not doing anything for anyone but Jose Baez.

    Do you really think that he cares what the outcome is? Well I take that back, yes he cares because his movie deal is contingent on the outcome. Yet what you don’t see is: Casey Anthony deserves the death penalty and due to his inept abilities the next phase after her trial will be a mis trial based on her lawyers inability to defend her properly.

    So while you are entitled to your opinion as each of us is,you probably need to study up a little further because this group knows this case in and out
