Motion objecting to information being inspected by Casey Anthony’s defense team filed

July 13, 2010

The defense in the Casey Anthony case has filed a motion today to  “object to any preliminary release to the news media, or other public, of the records relating to intended inspection of tangible evidence.”

read the motion here

“This is a case of the state of Florida versus Casey Anthony, this is not a case of news media and John Q Public.”

Anthony’s attorneys and a group of “experts” that includes Henry Lee, and Selma and Richard Eikelenboom, forensic scientists from Holland, are reviewing evidence held by OCSO today and tomorrow.

Although Baez would not talk about what they were looking at, he revealed they would be looking at Casey’s Pontiac Sunfire again.

In their objection to the release of documents that would reveal what evidence the team and its experts are examining, the attorneys wrote:

“This is a case of the state of Florida versus Casey Anthony, this is not a case of news media and John Q. Public.”
“To allow the news media to continue to have what has turned out to be, in many instances, ‘first look’ at evidence, publicize otherwise uninformed speculation and conclusions about evidence, utilizing ‘talking head’ lawyers who have neither the experience, knowledge, or predicates for their public comments, promises to continue to infuse this case with public bias, prejudice, misunderstanding, and error.”

Both the prosecution and the defense had a 4 PM deadline today from Judge Perry to file any objections to the release of information that would reveal what evidence is being inspected.

Wellll, ya know…….I think I might be more inclined to agree with this motion if the defense was CONSISTENT with their concerns.  Mr. Baez and Co. have no problem leaking information about this case when they think it will be of benefit to THEM.  I would be willing to bet my next piece of fresh peach pie with a big scoop of cinnamon ice cream (which I’m going to eat right after I finish this post), that if they find anything of value to them hidden amongst  the evidence they are sifting through, it will be all over the news before they leave the site.

    Hey Mystery! I have to agree with you on those guys. They leak like colanders! Mason was just in a bad mood with the media when he wrote that………..Unless they are about to get slammed about their media coverage again, or they are about to pull a BIG LEAK! Oh well……I don’t know if you saw this, but it’s funny!

    “This is a case of the state of Florida versus Casey Anthony, this is not a case of news media and John Q. Public.”

    Seems to me like Mason proves that the public should get a look at what the defense is examining with this statement. Who is the “State of Florida” if not John Q. Public and the media which conveys the information JQP has a right to know?

    “…utilizing ‘talking head’ lawyers who have neither the experience, knowledge, or predicates for their public comments…”

    Isn’t Mason describing Baez with these comments? Didn’t Baez pick up a gig as a “talking head” lawyer on some news programs after this case broke into the national news? Didn’t he comment about other cases? Didn’t he comment on those cases even though we all know he has very little experience in the practice (even less in the SUCCESSFUL practice) of law?

    Oh, wait, Mason is describing himself. I seem to remember not only multiple interviews but court appearances in which Mason stated multiple times that he was not informed about aspects of this case because of various communication and “case newbie” reasons, yet he still gave out comments about specifics, some of which were in complete disagreement with previous defense statements, interviews, and motions.

    But to the main point of Mason’s motion that KC cannot receive a fair trial if the public learns about the evidence the defense is examining, or the jail logs, or any other information about the case – no amount of public or media scrutiny can harm this case because the jury will be picked from outside the “media spin zone” which the defense fought for and won. Therefore, no motion from the defense attempting to limit public knowledge of public records seems likely to be granted.

    Spacely,

    Excellent points as usual. Although, it looks like, at least for now, the list will be kept under wraps.
