Casey Anthony – “We’re late!”


We’re late!

We’re late!

For a very important date.

No time to say “Hello.” “Goodbye.”

We’re late, we’re late, we’re late!

Usually the holidays are a slow time in news and entertainment.  Add to that a huge Nor’easter blizzard that dropped tons of snow and brought the east coast to a halt and you may have thought there is little to amuse you and boredom may begin to set in.

Well, the Casey Anthony clowns apparently snuggled up in front of the fireplace, decked out in their jammies (yes, the ones with the footies), with steaming cups of cocoa (yes, with those mini marshmallows), their 120 count box of Crayolas (I have it on good authority they asked Santa for the Crayolas with glitter, but Santa had been reading his list of ‘naughty and nice’ and failed to deliver) and began an all-nighter producing an avalanche of motions!  This on top of the six previously filed motions.  For more on the previous motions, see the article by the ever-industrious ritanita at T&T!

I will address a few of my favorite motions and they can all be found in their entirety at WFTV.  Suffice it to say, I sincerely doubt the Honorable Judge Belvin Perry had visions of sugar plums dancing in his head and more likely was muttering bah humbug!

Motion To Restrict In Court Photography/Videoing – Baez

Ok, this one we should have seen coming after Baez whined at the last hearing (out of turn, because Ann Finnell was the attorney on record) that he wanted the cameraman admonished for filming Casey passing notes in court.

I'm on TV, right?

“At a recent hearing, the still photographer, utilizing super (my emphasis) telephoto equipment, focused on the Defendant during a discussion with counsel and on the document the Defendant was reading.  Said photograph was thereafter posted on the internet.  See Exhibit A.

First of all, we have no idea which hearing date is being referenced.  I looked at the grainy photo and while it does appear to be Casey reading a document, it is a bizarre angle and I sure can’t vouch for its validity!

“At another recent hearing, defense counsel observed what, in good faith, was believed to be a further attempt by the still camera photographer, using super (my emphasis) telephoto equipment, to discover a note being written by the Defendant to her counsel.”

Baez goes on to say, “The Defendant request the Court prohibit the use of any telephoto (Baez emphasis) equipment on any (my emphasis) form of media in the courtroom.”

Interesting wording on that last quote!  Baez muddles his argument by effectively asking that NO telephoto equipment be used in court!

No, seriously your Honor!

Well, my first bit of advice to Baez et al, perhaps it would behoove counsel to pay more attention to court proceedings and more time preparing a defense.  Second, do you honestly think Casey’s scribbles are all that interesting to the public?  And lastly, get over your damn self, Jose!  Courtroom protocol is not your forte!

Motion In Limine To Preclude The Use, In Any Fashion Whatsoever, Of A Certain “Jib Jab” Cartoon Mason

“The aforementioned animated cartoon was picked up immediately by the press through their own misguided and otherwise purient  [sic] interests, and played repeatedly, even, apparently, nationwide.”

“The aforesaid cartoon can only reasonably said to have been created and then released…in an effort to embarrass the defense and counsel…”

“Even in some chemically induced imagination, a clear balancing test under Section 403, would prohibit such absurd “evidence.”

“…in an effort to embarrass the defense and counsel…”

So, this says to me that Mason is obviously more concerned how the attorneys come across and this hasn’t a damn thing to do with Casey Anthony! Silly man!

Mr. Mason, the correct spelling is PRURIENT! The New American Webster Handy College Dictionary, 4th Edition (Newly Revised) is available to purchase for about $7!  Oh wait, has Jose paid you?  Also, ‘prurient’ is usually related to: “1. (Psychology) unusually or morbidly interested in sexual thoughts or practices  2. exciting or encouraging lustfulness; erotic.” Was your freudian slip showing when you authored this motion?

Wonder if the Judge trusts me?

I have to wonder who is operating ‘in some chemically induced imagination’.

With or without a ‘chemically induced imagination’, watch the JibJab video, and determine for yourself if you honestly believe the SAO would seriously introduce this parody as ‘evidence’!

Linda Drane Burdick jumped into the fray by filing:

State of Florida’s Motion In Limine

Pretty much, she is asking the court to muzzle Baez and Mason from stating witnesses are ‘liars’, that OCSO, SAO or any other government agency ‘leaked’ information to the media or any third-party, etc.  In other words, SHUDDUP!

And of course, we have the exceptional motion by Jeff Ashton which may be heard on Monday!

State Motion For Sanctions For Failure To Comply

It appears to me that Baez and Mason have opened Pandora’s box by pushing the prosecution’s buttons long enough and Burdick and Ashton have taken the kid gloves off!

It also appears to me that the defense has come to the realization that a trial is 4 months away and they are in a quandary and scurrying around saying…

We’re late!

We’re late!

For a very important date.

No time to say “Hello.” “Goodbye.”

We’re late, we’re late, we’re late!

A very Happy New Year to all!

    Geeze Louise, Donchais! You, in your blizzard-induced isolation have certainly hit some major problems with the defense motions!

    Heck, that Jib Jab video was produced and directed by none other than the former “savior” of the defense, Joy Wray! I enjoyed that “prurient” video (as did many other case-watchers) a long time ago! I just happened to be on Joy’s computer along with her tree-hanging photographs of everything but what she said they were.

    As for the photography, I assume that the defense considers their territory “sacred ground” to be subject to totally different rules from everyone else, including Judge Perry. Fact is, the defense needs to learn to keep their voices down when they “whisper”. They also need to teach Casey how to pass notes a little better.

    I am giving kudos to Linda Drane Burdick for filing a well-written, well-thought-out motion in limine. What we read there must emanate from all the “media tours” and courtroom antics of the defense. They have put up with it all since Baez first said that “Casey had her reasons” and it would all make sense at trial.

    I’m still waiting.

    Now, I’m off to thoroughly read all the latest documents for myself!

    Happy New Year!

    When is Baez going to grow up and quit whining? Didn’t he also cry about fun being made of his facebook picture? Three cheers for Linda Drane Burdick, hopefully sanctions are on the way for Bozo and his merry band of clowns. Happy New Year to all! And may the New Year bring justice for Caylee.

    Happy New Year to you also Barb2! Monday’s hearing ought to be a riot and I do so hope sanctions will be slapped on the clowns.

    The Justice Train for Caylee isn’t too far out from the final stop!

    I am not sure why Baez is upset about the Jib Jab video, when his Attorney peers are publicly calling him unprofessional and a Moron. You would think he would try to refute that, but he knows it’s true so says nothing.
    That’s what you get for making friends with Joy Wray, Bozo….

      Good points Eileen!

      If in his craziness, Baez truly intends or intended to call Joy Wray (birds of a feather!) he probably wants the video tossed so the jury won’t realize it was Wray’s faux pas in posting that inane video! His ego also seems more offended by folks making fun of his likeness than written comments about his unprofessionalism. Plus, he appears to have learned faster than Mason (obviously) that issuing a written statement or giving a soundbite usually comes back to bite you on the ass! He is no more than a little boy in a portly, grownup body!

    I didn’t get who the faces were, in the JibJab Halloween mash-up video. Is that the video referred to in the motion? Also, one of the comments said that attorney peers of Baez are publicly criticizing him, where would one find those public remarks, if the commenter or anyone knows?

      You must certainly recognize Casey as the mad scientist, Baez as Dracula, Joy Wray as Bride of Frankenstein and so on.

      Richard Hornsby of WESH, Bill Sheaffer of WFTV to name a few as well as many of the TH on TV. This has been going on since the hearings began.

      Google is a good source!

    Thanks for that info, I will now watch it again, with greater understanding!

    I definitely recognize Baez, but that doesn’t look like Casey, the hair is not dark enough!

    Happy New Year Donchais! Sometimes I’ve wondered why oh why would presumably educated people find it so easy to make themselves look sillier than even a little JibJab video Joy Wray can come up with…..do they have ulterior motives?
    Thinking….thinking…..ulterior motives??? Nah….they are just “educated” dumb asses.

    Happy New Year!!

    excellent articles, donchais…someone brought up Mumbles-Mason’s “Notice of Hearing”, the list of items to discuss at the Jan 3rd hearing, & the fact that he “slipped in” line item #3: “Request Court Determine Prior Bad Acts of Mr. Kronk Based on Motion Papers filed”.http://www.wftv.com/pdf/26331400/detail.html

    Is this a previous motion (say, from a year ago or so) that was dismissed with prejudice so they can bring it up in this hearing again, or is it a new one ? The original motion would’ve included wording by Counsel in which they accuse Kronk of being a suspect & attack OCSO/LE for not investigating him as a suspect…but they’ve already announced that Kronk isn’t a suspect (http://www.wftv.com/news/26261091/detail.html), & a motion on his “prior bad acts” would have to be a new one, newly filed, no?

    excuse my trigger-finger submission – my point being: if Mumbles wants to include line item #3 from his “Notice of Hearing” for Jan 3rd’s hearing, & says the motion has been filed, where is this filed motion where we can read it? And, the deadline to hear that was Dec 23rd, & they missed it. Now, Dec 31st, he requests it be heard.
    Can you, or anyone else, clarify this for me?

      Hi ya and thanks, allaboutme!

      If you go to WFTV, I believe the video from the 12/20 hearing is still up. At the end of the hearing, Judge Perry questioned Baez about dropping the Kronk motion. Baez tap-danced and said he believed he had until 12/31 to decide. Judge Perry actually laughed at him and said, ‘no, it had to be heard by the 31st and he was going on vacation which he already postponed once. In no uncertain terms, Perry said the time available for a hearing was on the 23 and the 23rd was a drop-dead date. It never was heard!

      So, whatever sleazy trick Mason is trying to pull, the Kronk issue is dead in–the-water!

      I’m sure Mason will claim he didn’t have knowledge of the background on the Kronk motion or maybe we can chalk it up to his consuming too many pina coladas on vacation!

      BTW, Mason’s Notice of Hearing is rift with errors. A couple motions haven’t even been submitted to the Court yet and one that is complete is missing from Mason’s list!
