If I've summarized that accurately, then that is a huge blow to the defense.
    More hammering. The psychiatrist is coming off like weasel. Martinez keeps trying to trip him up and does. If he didn't cross a T or dot an I - it takes another 20 minutes to unravel why he didn't and it's tedious.

    We do think that Jodi knows she's going to prison, don't we?

    It's difficult to tell what she's thinking. Her face seems slack and expressionless. To me, she looks totally medicated with something.

    I just read that juror #5 has been excused and the trial is moving on. This means she can start giving interviews. I hope she does, can't wait.

    Is there trial coverage today? Anyone watching?

    I'm multi-tasking but have HLN on in the background. They just went back to Alice the DV expert after the lunch break. Nothing earth shattering to say the least. I have to keep moving because if I sit down to watch it lulls me to sleep.

    I guess the morning was in judge's chambers with the mistrial request. Denied, with the juror dismissal. HLN said she left the court sobbing, and that she can talk to the press if she wants. But her name etc won't be released, so they'll have to find her or she'll find them.

    I'm not following the trial that closely. What was the deal with the juror?

    Oh thank you Trixie for the update. I'd be surprised if she wasn't all over the news by tonight.

    Last week, the defense made a stink about the prosecutor posing for a few pictures with his "fans" outside the courthouse...HLN had reported about it and a comment was made that it wouldn't be a good thing if a juror saw it. So all the jurors were brought in to be questioned individually by the judge. Apparently something said by juror#5 (no one knows what she said, record is sealed) prompted the defense to file another motion for a mistrial. Mistrial denied, but juror was dismissed. They had 18 jurors, only 12 will deliberate (none hearing the case know if they will be chosen or not) so they still have 5 spares.

    eta: sprynkles I agree--I'm sure all the HLN night shows have their producers scrambling as we speak to find the juror!

    Can't wait for Martinez to cross examine LaViolette. She made Jodi look like stalker no. 1. The worse Travis has looked is that he didn't want a relationship with Jodi.

    ^ Gawd, don't even get me started. Shortened court hours/days, long lunches, holidays, illnesses, migraines, hunger pangs, mistrial hearings, prosecutorial misconduct hearings, juror questioning, and my favorite, court dismissed because a spectator puked in the aisle. Not to mention the longest, boringest, bullshit defense case on the planet, and the slowest-speaking defense attorneys known to mankind.

    I love the no court at all on Fridays. This is NOT the Casey Anthony all day long 6 days a week trial.

    Oh holy cow, did you guys see the police interviews with Jodi's mom and dad? They basically said, yeah she is nuts. Her mom even asked Jodi if she did it?

    Yes, I'm watching HLN now...really interesting, and surprising. I had no idea they interviewed her parents. I hope they release the entire interviews on youtube. HLN of course has that way of giving you 2 minutes of tape, a minute of stupid commentary, then oh we've gotta go to commercial. Grrr

    Dr. Drew will have a field day with these tonight.
