Casey Anthony – Hey Chowder Head! IXNAY HETAY AWLAY OOKSBAY!

05/26/2010

I must say I always enjoy ritanita’s articles on the mountain of motions that have been filed in the Casey Anthony murder case.  Her latest is no exception.  The two motions to be heard on June 1 have, as usual, some flaws as ritanita points out!

Sealing Jail Visitation Log by Cheney Mason.  To quote, “I find it curious that a seasoned attorney such as Cheney Mason would forget to notice the target of the motion, Orange County, the entity which administers the county correctional facilities.”

Reconsider Prior Rulings by Judge Strickland.  This all revolves around the TES documents for the gazillionth time!  Quote, “NeJame stated that Casey Anthony’s defense team scheduled the hearing without coordinating with him, and he had a pre-planned family holiday that day.

NeJame stated his office is coordinating a new hearing date with Casey Anthony’s defense, and that he was filing the conflict notice simply to assure his portion of the hearing be canceled and rescheduled.”

So, this got me thinking.

Way back in 2008 when it was pretty much Jose Baez on his own, we got a glimpse of his smugness and arrogance and his need to grab as much media face-time as he could.  But, the more media time he received the more folks began wondering how competent he was.

Think back to the extreme patience shown by Judge Stan Strickland.  It seemed Mr. Baez filed motions just for the sake of arguing motions in court because it was a lawyerly thing to do –

‘…well, the State has it so I want it too…’

‘…we need access to the crime scene before it is disturbed…’

‘…because of Ms. Anthony’s status, her situation and her unpopularity we find ourselves in a muck…’

Again and again, Judge Strickland explained many of the motions contained no substance or were thin on legal precedent, or out-and-out incorrect and pretty much sent Baez back to the drawing board.

Now enter Andrea Lyon and Cheney Mason.  They haven’t really been fairing much better!

Ms. Lyon has provided a flurry of motions on the death penalty – her forte – many of which ignore or show a lack of understanding of Florida law or are based on her value system rather than actual law.

Cheney Mason stunned people when he notarized a document with an expired notary stamp.  When he asked Judge Strickland in open court, ‘you trust me, don’t you?’ Now, he wants jail visitation logs sealed, but obviously doesn’t notice the proper party!

Just how incompetent are these attorneys?  Seriously, I would be embarrassed especially with the public scrutiny this case receives.  The bogus motions, the missed deadlines, being unprepared at hearings and, ok I just have to say it, some of the ‘mistruths’ they have provided in sound bites is startling!

It has been quite amusing to sit back and wait for the next gaffe from the defense team.  One begins to think of them sitting around the office as:

I’ve worked out in my head who’s who – I’ll let you use your own imagination!

So, this really started out as a tongue-in-cheek article, but as I reviewed old articles and videos it started to lose the humor aspect and began to really make me mad!

Casey Anthony has been sitting in jail since October 14, 2008 – on the taxpayer’s dime.

The volumes of inappropriate motions, nonsensical motions, and the fact the defense has done little or nothing in terms of deposing witnesses, conducting their investigations and preparing their defense does nothing but postpone the inevitable.

March 18, 2010 Anthony was declared indigent so in addition to feeding, housing and clothing her, Florida residents now get to pay for a huge amount of her defense.

Now, after a year-and-a-half, we see the defense finally climbing out of the ‘muck’ they were in and beginning some forward motion.

Lets not forget, it was Casey’s lying and wild goose chases that began this charade!

Yep, those things really make me mad!

What makes me most angry?

Caylee Marie Anthony disappeared June 2008

Caylee’s body was discovered, discarded like so much trash, in the woods December 2008

Caylee is still waiting for justice May 2010

Casey Anthony trial doesn’t begin until May 2011.

    Nice compilation of silliness within our justice system,donchais. What gets me scratching my head bald is when I read comments that frivolous motions, deception, and foot-dragging are common, to-be-expected tactics, Casey’s rights to “the best defense.”

    We have Cindy’s remarks compiled, Casey’s lies compiled…it’s good to have the “mis-truths” of the defense compiled, the above Burdick comment being one.

    As you say, donchais, BINGO!

    One interesting part of your article…

    ‘…we need access to the crime scene before it is disturbed…’

    In his caustic comments upon recusing himself, Strickland had this to say about the motion the defense had filed to investigate the crime scene along with LE:

    “…to a motion to stop law enfocement from securing and investigating the crime scene of a homicide…”

    I’m beginning to believe that the defense is purpously pushing the buttons with their inappropriate filings and failure to cooperate with other attorneys. Strickland, nice guy that he was knew this, but was trying to educate Baez.

    With Cheney pulling the same things now, Judge Perry will have zero tolerance for these shenanigans.

    I am sitting on pins and needles waiting to see what Perry has to say about the latest with NeJame when he rules. While he has less freedom to write as Strickland did in his Order of Recusal, he will not mince words. There will be something quite proper and appropriate to pull the defense to heel as he did when telling all parties to file their responses and motions prior to NOON!

    Not sure what you are saying…Linda Drane Burdick is one of the State prosecutors!!!!

    Wow, Great post…..That says it all in a nutshell (almost). I sometimes feel “almost” embarassed for the defense, especially when they have to file such lame motions because they have NOTHING to defend this woman with, except for maybe finding a typo or a witness with a questionable backround.

    I am so looking forward to hearing the reason (in court) as to waiting 31 days to report your child missing. Baez assured us “It will all make sense come trial”.

    You’re right, Burdock is the prosecutor. I meant Baez’ and Co. comments, who has given us a plethora of chuckles.

    Great post Donchais!
    You don’t suppose the defense have the law books written in Pig Latin do you? No wonder we have so much trouble interpreting their motions….something gets lost in the translation.
    This case is very frustrating, and at times the defense seems to be making more of a mockery of the judicial system than providing their client a defense or perhaps even good legal advice.

    Casey NEVER reported her daughter missing, and never would have. Cindy did.

    I saw the three stooges photo and just started laughing. Perfecto, donchais!
