Judge Strickland delays decision in the Casey Anthony case

May 28, 2009

Circuit Court Judge Stan Strickland delayed a decision on whether or not to release the jail video showing Casey Anthony’s reaction to finding out that a body of a small child was found in the woods near her home.  Prosecutors argued that they had not had sufficient time to review and respond to the 17 page motion Baez filed late yesterday afternoon. (hmmm.  Wonder if Jose did that for that very reason–the prosecution would delay it.  That would give his new “Girl Friday” more time as well…..) Strickland also wanted to give the attorneys for the media outlets 7 days to argue for the release of the video under the state’s public records law. Baez argument said that it was cruel, it violated her right to counsel, and that it invaded her right to keep her medical records private.

Strickland also heard arguments from several people who object to Baez request for a huge amount of information (including phone records) from key witnesses in the case.  These people feel he is stepping on their rights by asking for such a wide range of information from them. The judge is requiring Baez to go back and amend his request to limit the amount of information he wants.

    Baez can argue that the jail video taping Casey was cruel but not nearly as cruel as what she did to Caylee. He’s an idiot.

    Paula, that video must be very damning for him to go to this much trouble to have it kept from the public.

    Bozo, S**thead,,,Casey is not the victim….The victim is Caylee, who was murdered by Casey and cant speak about what happen..Bozo you are a moron…THE VICTIM IS CAYLEE…Casey can go to HELL..Casey the liar, gave up all her rights, the minute she killed Caylee and took away all of little Caylee’s rights……….Biaz Bozo, you are a total moron. Casey the liar can stay in jail, until the jail rots, and then move her sorry murdering lying ass to another jail……..

    chuck–tell us how you really feel! LOL. Of course Baez’ job is to defend Casey and she has the right to counsel. I just wish he would do it in a more COMPETENT and TIMELY fashion and stop wasting taxpayers money with these last minute motions!

    Hello Itsamystery, Why would Jose call Jesse a suspect? Didn’t he cooperate, offer to take lie detector so the police wouldn’t waste time on him because of all the lies by Casey? I find it sickening that they continue to make Casey out to be the victim, thank God Casey can no longer hurt baby Caylee!

    Good question, Laura and the only reason I can think of is that he’s looking to name Jesse to help create doubt in the jury’s minds that Casey did it. The problem that will present for Baez is that Jesse apparently has an air-tight alibi and as you said has cooperated fully with LE.

    This is a little off track but I just heard on the news that a child porn ring in Florida has been busted. It involves nearly 50 people and children from 1 to 12 yrs old. I have often wondered if Casey did such things with Caylee to make extra money. I think there’s so much about this girl that we may never know.

    I’ve wondered if the reason Caylee’s life was taken was because she was starting to be able to communicate better and Casey was afraid of what she would tell George and Cindy.

    Mystery, I bet you’re right about them dropping the 17-page motion on them at the last minute. Just their style. Exactly. Good thinking. If this is how the whole case is going to go Casey will be a senior citizen before the trial ends.

    laura, it is completely sickening that they are trying to pin this on Jesse Grund. Despicable. What kind of people would stoop so low? Oh! And there are still people who accuse US of being “sick” and “having something wrong with us.” Right.

    Bees–wonder what tactics the new attorney will use? Hopefully she has better writing and communication skills. We’ll all be in the nursing home at this rate!

    KC didn’t have a problem showing her A$$ on videos at Fusion and pi$$ing in a public parking lot. this video is cruel punishment?
    Does Dumbo really think the public will but that…they are all smart enough to know exactly why they don’t want the public to see the tape…conscience of guilt.

    I’m thinking you are absolutely right, Mand. That tape must be a doozy!

    Thanks Laura..

    Hey everyone have you heard this….Lyons turns on the tears in the penalty phase?
    She did so in her last case and the judge sent the jury out and told Lyons to turn the tears off…the guy is on death row!!!
    It seems this is one of her tactics and the judge had reviewed 16 of her last cases and she turned the tears on at precisely the same time in each trial!!! NOW AIN’T THAT SPECIAL???????

    Yep, I read she is quite the actress.

    a quote from an article on another blog:

    “… In court, Lyon, who is 6 feet tall, would put on quite a show. “Juries would weep, people would faint,” she says, not altogether kidding. To make her point, she was prepared to cry, get angry, bully.

    She says she once cross-examined a police officer so ferociously that he came off the witness stand and tried to choke her.

    “That,” she says, “was a good moment.” …”

    seriously, why in the freakin burning underground are the Anthony’s constantly talking to the media? Why? Why? There should be a law against that. Who do they think they are? Are they on trial? Oh yeah, they might soon be

    I’m with Mand..gotta love that police officer! 😆

    Call me oldfashioned but all the females need to wear their hair “up” they would look more professional and less “fugly” on our eyes.

    Ostella I love all your descriptions :mrgreen:

    Hi–I answered everyone above Bees within the comment boxes.

    Bees–She apparently loves high drama in the courtroom. Wonder how that will go over with Strickland? He’s definitely not a Judge Ito or that judge that was involved with the Anna Nicole thing. He doesn’t strike me as the type that loves publicity or grandstanding.

    I don’t know. She’s as good as it gets from what I understand.

    Renee–there’s just no explanation other than they are trying to promote their new found careers and taint the jury pool.

    Is it some kind of club they’re in? Maybe they are just too, too busy to go to the hairdresser.
