Baez’ motion to bar testimony of the Padillas’, Dick, and McLaughlin is DENIED

August 28, 2009

Baez and Miss CaseyJudge Strickland denied the motion to repress the testimony of  Leonard Padilla, Tony Padilla, Tracy McLaughlin and Robert Dick.   The prosecutors are free to use their testimony, and that testsimony could be very damning to Casey Anthony. Chalk one up for the prosecution.

The group bailed Casey out of jail and spent a great deal of time with her and her family. Baez wanted to bar what he called, “privileged testimony.” Judge Strickland disagreed with his argument that the group was part of the defense counsel’s team and therefore covered by the attorney-client privilege.

Baez WILL  have access, however, to the records of TES searchers, but it will be limited to interviewing the 32 people that were searching within 200 yards of where Caylee’s remains were eventually located.  They will be able to go through the rest of TES records to try and identify more people that might have been in close proximity to Caylee’s remains, and I suppose if they turn anyone else up, they will be able to interview them as well.

It is thought that the defense will try and use that information to prove their theory that Caylee was put in the woods near her grandparent’s home AFTER Casey was in jail.  TES founder, Tim Miller said the area was underwater and therefore a search of that particular spot was cancelled. Roy Kronk is expected to testify that he saw the bag containing Caylee’s body back in August, and botanists will be testifying that the plant growth around her remains had been there at least 4 months.  This would seemingly cancel the defense’s claim that her body was “planted” much later and could not have been put there by Casey Anthony.

Let’s hope our girl Casey blabbed her mouth off–and we all know Cindy has a tendency to run hers!

    What I don’t understand Jose said he wanted Tony’s cell phone pings to make sure he didn’t put the body there, what happened to the nanny? It wasn’t like Casey didn’t give a name she was swearing she left her with ZG how can they now blame others??? I don’t think Tim Miller is going to help the defense. Also in the motions from the judge he ordered Casey to pay for these expenses, where is she getting the money to pay for this? Let me guess from the photos of the baby that she loved so much she murdered. Sick and enough to make you want to scream!

    Laura–I guess we’re all supposed to have short-term memories–just like George and Cindy. Luckily, the prosecution will be able to ask those same questions in court!

    As far as Tim Miller–all the defense has to do is mosey on over to Mark Nejame’s office and peruse the files at their leisure. Then, they will have to decide how much expense they want to incur bringing the volunteers in. Plus, Nejame stipulated the funds had to come from “legit” sources. That could pose a problem!

    Bozo must be devestated. He practiced his courtroom haiku/dance “argument” for days on end down in the basement…only to be brutally rebuffed by Judge Strickland come showtime. How will he EVER explain this to troupe manager Joe Jackson? He does not allow failure…..

    woohoo! Can’t wait to hear what Lenny & team have to say. Especially Tracy!

    Laura – they’ll blame it on anyone they can. Anyone that happened to go by that area while casey was in jail must have been helping the nanny! Can you imagine if someone’s cell phone innocently pinged off of a nearby tower?! Oh Lordy…

    Molly, I agree with what you said. It is just to bad your not locked into your statements. I find it ridiculous that they can throw all of Casey’s innocent friends. They should all feel bad for what they are doing. It is obvious to me the only one who matters is Casey. Caylee did not deserve this family!

    I’m with you Laura! How can they say both? “The Nanny took her away by force, knocking her to the ground,” and/or “Tony took her?!!” How could she possibly confuse the two??? It’s preposterous! What is wrong with them that they actually seem to think WE (the public) buy their BS, never mind the F-freaking-B-I? Tee Hee!!!! It’s madness.

    Hi Mystery! Oh my, Bozo must be having a hissy fit with that denied motion. I bet Team Padilla has a treasure trove of damning information on KC. What I want to know is if Macaloser is saying that KC did not place Caylee’s body there, (yeah right) then I wonder why Judge Strickland denied releasing the video of when Caylee’s remains were found because the contents were “HIGHLY INFLAMMATORY.” IMO, I highly believe that KC can be seen mouthing out the words, “OH SH*T!” In this case, her words speaking just as loud as her actions. I agree with you that the defense thinks we have very short memories. That is probably why they are going out of their way jumping through hoops and trying to make us believe the sky is falling and trying to divert our attention away from the man behind the curtain. Obviously Macaloser thinks that lies can prevail over the truth. The truth always has substance in and of itself whereas lies always have a way of biting you in the ***. Do you know if the they have released the documents yet?

    As far as I know, the docs have not been released to the public yet.

    While Casey was out on bail, she desperately wanted to “tell” something to Annie when Annie spent the night. According to Annie, she (Annie) would cut Casey off, because she didn’t want to be the one who knew stuff.

    I don’t know if Annie was wise here, knowing what she would be put through as a critical witness, or if Annie was wimping out big time. This testimony could be for Caylee’s sake.

    Whatever the case, Casey wanted to tell, maybe just more lies, try to make herself look clever, make her family look bad, or something. If Casey had guilt, then it would be to alleviate that, but I’m not sure if guilt was an ingredient in Casey’s personality.

    Casey was known to be chatty and sometime flirty with Tracy and Rob. If she wanted to tell, she had others to listen.

    But I don’t think she did any direct confessing. She didn’t break down or get confidential about the deed, except to give another version of what happened. Any info. for Tracy would perhaps reflect confidential stuff about her family.

    I think what Tracy will be able to attest to is Casey’s attitude, her demeanor, her mindset at that time. She will be able to testify as to the the family’s mindsest at the time as well.

    Ha ha……..I think it’s funny that BIG MOUTH Casey couldn’t shut her trap. Now it will all come back and bite her in the behind. Good. But, now since the judge has ruled in the prosecutions favor, does this mean he will rule in the defenses favor with the check fraud delay they are seeking? Hope not.

    I wish I felt otherwise but I don’t. I think Strickland will allow the defense their request and put the check fraud off.

    Strickland seems to be taking a long time to rule on the ck fraud case. I really think he wants to go forward & is looking for a smooth way to present it to the defense. I hope he goes forward with it. That would put a little rock in the Baez boat.
