      Thanks for reposting this Donchais!

      You mentioned in an earlier thread about being torn between covering two trials. (With the Arias trial running late and another that you have been following being close to your heart) I do believe that you may have some new avid trial watchers here who will not go away when the Arias trial ends and will want to invest some of their time and energy into another trial, which may in turn, also be therapeutic to them. If the burden of work would not be too heavy on you, could this be a possible compromise?

      Just finished listening to the radio segment. Observations:
      I do NOT like Holly Hughes.Nor did I appreciate her “diss” of KCL …”I have a real job”. Although KCL took it in stride. I have and always will like Beth Karas. To me, she is the only voice of reason on HLN and doesn’t sway in the wind like the rest of them. KatieCoolLady ROCKS!!!

  5. Jay
    04/14/2013 at 9:42 pm

    LaViolette won’t be back in court until Tuesday. And if the only other defense witness is the HLN producer, Martinez may be calling his first rebuttal witness tomorrow. If so I doubt he’ll call Dr. Janeen DeMarte first — he’ll probably save her for last, unless he has some other witness testimony to blow the defense out of the water.

    But you never know who he’ll call first . If it’s DeMarte, what do we know about her other than her laptop was stolen and these qualifications?

    As to the laptop, was it recovered? If not, was important unrecoverable evidence on it? If there was no backup the defense will feast on that in the same way JM feasted on the defense witnesses for sloppy work habits.

    Though DMs educational and clinical credentials are available, what is known about her expert witness history? Is this her first Appearance at a murder trial? If so that could be problemativ for the prosecution: no matter how ernest and informed she may be, a novice can be easily carved up by the defense.

    I tried to find more background on her via google search but was unsuccessful. Anyone else out there know more about her?

      04/14/2013 at 10:26 pm

      I don’t know a ton about her, but I do know she has a PHD and does therapy as well as evaluations for psychological issues. Per her web site she has some specialties that are very important to this case. Testing and Evaluation, Personality Disorders,Trauma and PTSD.

      You can check out her page here: http://therapists.psychologytoday.com/rms/name/Janeen_DeMarte_PhD_Phoenix_Arizona_136525

        Thanks TJ.. Saw that already, pretty much the same as what’s listed on the link I provided.. But no info provided on her expert witness history. I’d be interested to know if she testified for JM before, or in other murder cases. And I know I’m being a Pollyanna, but wouldn’t it be cool if this exchange transpired on her opening testimony:
        JM: Dr DeMarte have you made a through examination of the evidence in this case?
        JDM: I have, Mr Martinez
        JM: And how much are you being paid an hour?
        JDM: nothing,sir. I’ve donated my time to the citizens of the State of Arizona to balance the scales of justice.”

        I know, dream on.. 😊

        04/14/2013 at 11:30 pm

        Jay.. wouldn’t that be something. I hope she has some extensive trial experience. But since the defense is playing dirty – hopefully she has not testified for JM before or they will claim bias … PUKE

    • WhereIsSHE
      04/15/2013 at 10:10 am

      Not only would it be inappropriate for an expert to waive all fees “to balance the scales of justice”, but the prosecutor would never allow it, because how much more BIASED can a witness be?! JM would never stand for it, because it would subject the expert to a major grilling on cross examination.
      Expert witnesses are not there to do ANYTHING with regard to the “scales of justice”. They are there to evaluation certain evidence in the case that calls for analysis within the scope of their professional capacity, and then to render their opinions on that evidence IN ORDER TO “ASSIST THE TRIER OF FACT” with understanding that evidence. Period.

      When an expert comes across as an ADVOCATE (as ALV just did), they actually harm the case of the party calling them more than had they not tesfied to begin with. The lawyers are the advocates. Any witness, fact or expert, who comes across as an advocate tends to lose credibility with the jury, BECAUSE of their obvious BIAS in favor of one party over the other and/or their obvious PREJUDICE against the other party.

      IMO, ALV actually HURT this defendant’s case, because of her obvious and patent BIAS in foavor of the defendant. Would hate for the State’s expert to suffer the same consequence. Beer that she appear FAIR and NEUTRAL and admit to being fairly compensated for her time.

    Happy Sunday y’all! I’ve been armchair detective-ing and just want to throw a few random ideas and invite discussion:

    -The Knife: While I firmly believe JA intended to use a knife in her crime, I don’t think it necessarily follows she brought one with her. She had been in TA’s house tons of times and surely had a good idea of what types of kitchen knives he had, and exactly where they were kept. Doesn’t really affect the bottom line of the crime, but that’s my theory on that. Unless police ruled out that one of his knives was used in the attack and I missed that?

    -The shower pics: I have difficulties with all the scenarios tossed around, and haven’t developed a separate theory that I think settles the matter. I have the greatest doubts about the story that the pics were Travis’ idea. The theory that JA forced him to take the pics at gunpoint certainly fits with the ultimate events of that day, but I also have difficulty seeing JA being able to hold him at gunpoint for any prolonged period of time. TA was much larger than her, much more proficient with firearms, and she was also trying to handle and operate a camera at the same time–I really think he would have found an opportunity to at least attempt to disarm her. He still may have died in the end, but I think a different sort of struggle than the crime scene shows would be evident. I wonder if she cajoled him into the photo session, promising that if she could just take a few photos to remember him by, she’d leave him alone (not that she intended to leave him alone–the photos would just be a final remembrance, and a way to get him into a vulnerable position). But if she had just previously blackmailed him with the pedophilia story, I doubt he’d allow her to take photos for fear that they would be used for further blackmailing and general tarnishing of his reputation. So in summation I haven’t really settled on any shower pic scenario as a perfect fit.

    -Male vs. Female abuse perpetrators: I don’t know if the trial/rebuttal case is the place to introduce this, but I kind of wish someone would offer more explanation about how male and female abusers operate differently, because I have trouble seeing it progressing the same way (this may be my uninformed perspective on female-on-male abuse). I must say that I have almost no experience with domestic abuse, my thoughts are based solely on my observations of male vs. female behavior in general. I’m just speculating and welcome disagreements. I apologize in advance if I trivialize or misunderstand anyone’s experience. Anyways, it seems so far the the prosecution has argued (rightly) that females can be perpetrators as well as males, but with no further discussion the inference would be that all abuse activities are exactly the same, only with gender roles reversed. In other words, person-on-person violence escalates throughout the relationship. I would think that when the female is the abuser, the abuse is much more emotional and psychological. When there is violence, it is more commonly directed towards a possession of the victim (tires slashed, treasured objects destroyed, etc.). And when the female perpetrator finally commits person-to-person violence, it is final and fatal. Not saying that female-on-male abuse can’t progress any other way, but that it manifests differently than male-on-female abuse. Anyone care to put their two cents in? I’m happy to learn if I’m wrong.

    • Jay
      04/14/2013 at 10:27 pm

      Pretty much the same kind of violence perpetrated by both sexes, physical and emotional. But women now more likely to initiate it. Confirming studies galore out there. Here’s links to some of them:


      Notice by who and where and when the list was prepared;

      Department of Psychology
      California State University, Long Beach
      Last updated: June 2012

      Cal State Long Beach is one of her sponsoring universities, right up the road from ALVs private practice.. She damn well knows female domestic violence against mals is on the increase yet gave phony statistics about it under oath.

      That neck wound is not an average knife wound. It’s clean and extremely deep. I doubt she could quickly lay her hands on something capable of that type of injury. It had to be close to surgically sharp.

      HI all.
      Read everyday, don’t post much, love the site and all on it. Re: the knife. my sister used to work in a restuarant. says that every night the knives were sharpened. Do you think it possible that HODI brought one with her to ensure her work would be effective. Also I think that she used the gun simply to subdue Travis. she did say on cross, that if someone pulled a gun on her, it would get her attention.

      • 04/15/2013 at 11:44 am

        I thinks it’s definitely possible… but i’d like to have a bit more forensic testimony regarding the knife than we have. so far we have blurry dimensions and that’s about it.

    Re: ALV and the “issue” to be addressed

    If the ALV issue is not contempt or something similar relative to her CV, or about approaching Samantha, it may be that she contacted the media not only while under subpoena, but while she was still in the middle of testifying. The media could have discovered the backlash against her books and her speaking engagements, but there is no way they could have found out not only that she went to the ER, but why. Even if by some wild chance the media did find out she went to the ER, there is no way they could risk reporting it.

    Also, I have been wondering if she would have behaved differently, especially during cross and juror questions, if she had not brought her own audience in the form of her “father and friends since Kindergarten.” What did she think this was? A preschool Christmas program? Bring Your Father To Work Day? Ridiculous!

    • Anna
      04/14/2013 at 10:51 pm

    • Tracey A
      04/14/2013 at 10:55 pm

      You never disappoint Girl. I’ve wondered that myself. With the strict HIPAA regulations/laws in effect, no way the ER would have released that info. Not a chance…

      LOL! Bring your father to work day!

    • Jay
      04/14/2013 at 11:04 pm

      Her contacting the media about the ER visit is an interesting proposition, faking palpitations for sympathy, etc. that would be a great third act reveal as they say in the film writing business.

      But for that to have happened wouldn’t there be other witnesses subpoenaed?

      • 04/15/2013 at 12:06 am

        Sadly, we have a complicit media that is more than willing to defend ALV from us meanies out here who dare to question her “professional” skills and integrity. Trust me, the media will not allow this women (a lesbian and feminist) to be attacked for any of her positions. She is a member of two classes that the media considers sacred…truth be damned!

    • Anniefreeze
      04/15/2013 at 1:25 am

      Hi Schaefer, I looked at her Facebook last week. the news of alv hospital visit presumably came from her Facebook page. One of her friends posted a declaration. I think that her friend may have been contacted after media noticed Facebook. I’m on ipad so my punctuation will never be accurate. 👊 (This is a fist bump).

    04/14/2013 at 10:53 pm

    Okay, just listening to the Tricia’s True Crime Radio broadcast from tonight–starting around the 23:00 mark, KatieCooLady (sp?) is talking about the juror who was dismissed this week (so, definitely the male ponytail juror) and she says the family isn’t devastated over the loss of that particular juror but “it was hard to see the defense succeed at something like that…” So being sick was just a cover, he was removed by the defense!

      04/14/2013 at 11:03 pm

    Gleaned from the Websleuths radio broadcast:

    Katie Coolady and the victim’s rights advocate, as well as Katie Wick and others who are regular court watchers, are now being followed. Unknown individuals have started lurking around them when they are in the hallway before, during, and after court. These same people just happen to “show up” wherever they go for meals, and try to sit very close to listen to their conversation. Katie Coolady and the group have “circled the wagons” and are not letting anyone new into their group and are being very guarded at all times.

    The defense is definitely trying to pick off jurors so they can get the jury whittled down to fewer than 12, and then have a mistrial declared. Juror #11, the one dismissed Friday, has been ill with a cold and cough all week, but he said he was able to continue and wanted to do so. The defense complained he might fall asleep, he couldn’t think clearly, especially if he was taking any medication, blah blah blah.

    I know the DT has a job to do, but honestly, there is a limit. These kind of tactics are despicable and inexcusable. They have nothing to do with defending WOBO and everything to do with making a mockery of the justice system.

    Not a fan in any way of Kobe. But the BF loves his basketball and that’s team. I hate BB with a passion (probably because it was one of many sports I tried out for and the only one I truly sucked at).

      yeah, but in shock, and here it is, I’m gonna ttry to bring a tiny bit of comic relief here ok.

      geez…okay…i love sports! (she says to take everyone’s mind off the nucking futs theater of the absurd going on in the background there…) I love the Dan Patrick show (is that still on? i just looked and couldn’t find it). Also give me David Feherty all day long. I want to marry him but that would just be real bad….too similar…oh, and I’m already married, damn it! 🙂 Anyway, I’ve slowly learned that sports is another great reliever of world reality – there’s a lot going on there, really. The Colosseum is sure fire testament to that type of cathartic leisure time. But one day I realized that men have got it right. A good event can last at least 3 hours, during which all you have to do is sit there and drink IPA. Just as good as humor, for me. [btw, Trace, my daughter plays bball and it’s in my tall family’s blood. I like the ncaa!! Kevin Durant’s our fave 🙂 ] [just re-read this and can’t even laugh at my own jokes as usual. im sorry if it’s inappropriate but the silence is deafening.]
      Prayers for all involved in this nightmare. We will be careful in our undying quest for Justice For Travis.

        Anna – my apologies Sweetie. I think you took me the wrong way. Did not mean for that to happen. Maybe you missed out on the debate (previous threads a day or so ago, about the M&M debate). That would put my previous posts in perspective. Please don’t misunderstand me, I adore you and your sense of humor.

        I certainly meant no disrespect to you in ANY way. Everybody here, in my circle of family and friends, are all BB fans and they like NCAA better than anything. I was very big into playing sports as a kid. A complete and utter tomboy. BB was the one sport I tried out for (with the flu mind you) that I was really bad at. Kudos for your daughter who plays it and loves it. I was bad and I mean really bad at it.

        Again, I meant no disrespect and was completely joking with you. My bad if it came off wrong. 😦 So sorry…

    Oh ii was on the radio show.. Did they say where they got those stories?

    KatieCoolLady said Juror 11 had been visibly sick with a terrible cough for days.

    • Jay
      04/15/2013 at 12:41 am

      I just listened to about half the show.. That woman who hosts it got on my nerves. All that Juan bashing at the start convinced me three of the four women (not Katiecoollady) were clueless. Double clueless when you add in those ALV defenses they made. So I heard the first part of the Juror #11 story, about the Allexander family not too upset he was excused and that the defense was responsible, but nothing else, about him being sick, etc. Or about Katie Wick followed- was that brought up in the second half of the show?

      I’m a poor little sleepy guy right about so it’s zzzzzzzzzz time; I’ll check in the AM for any other details 😔 😫 😣

      • 04/15/2013 at 1:37 am

        Jay last weeks was better did you watch it?

        Even still, after the initial segment where her and the HLN person totally misrepresented what Juan is doing the show improved dramatically.

        The issue with the views in the first segment is they think in a smaller picture than he does. They do not comprehend what he does with his witnesses and why.

        His ability to abstract reason and maneuver his case with the ease of a world class chess player is breathtaking to those who understand it. For those with a more limited scope they simply fail to grasp it.

        Thankfully I believe Judge Stephens sees it clearly.

        Thanks or the info, the show is available via streaming audio and if the trial doesn’t go live until later this afternoon I’ll listen to the rest of it. And yes, I listened to it last week, but it was way more in focus with Wendy Murphy as guest.

    Actually, losing only two jurors at this point in such a long trial is pretty good. If their questions on Friday were any indication, I think they’re ready to hand Ms. Arias her A$$ in their verdict.

    Anna – my apologies Sweetie. I think you took me the wrong way. Did not mean for that to happen. Maybe you missed out on the debate (previous threads a day or so ago, about the M&M debate). That would put my previous posts in perspective. Please don’t misunderstand me, I adore you and your sense of humor.
    I certainly meant no disrespect to you in ANY way. Everybody here, in my circle of family and friends, are all BB fans and they like NCAA better than anything. I was very big into playing sports as a kid. A complete and utter tomboy. BB was the one sport I tried out for (with the flu mind you) that I was really bad at. Kudos for your daughter who plays it and loves it. I was bad and I mean really bad at it.
    Again, I meant no disrespect and was completely joking with you. My bad if it came off wrong. So sorry…

    I agree that is why she doesn’t sustain his questions

    • WhereIsSHE
      04/15/2013 at 8:45 am

      Judges don’t “sustain questions”. They sustain OR overrule the lawyers’ OBJECTIONS to either the other party’s QUESTIONS (or–in the case of a witness who has been declared “hostile” to the party questioning said witness–to the “non-responsive” objections of the party who is doing the asking).

      Judges don’t making evidentiary rulings on objections, etc based on how they view the tactics of the lawyers in the case.
      There are rules of evidence that they apply.
      If not, the entire system would fall to pieces.

      Not saying they are always correct in their rulings. Far from it. That’s how we have appellate decisions (higher courts reviewing, among other things, appellate issues on HOW the judge ruled on any given objection at trial).

      One cannot defend a judge’s ruling in one’s favor at trial by arguing that the judge understood where I was going with this, or the judge liked my “style”.
      You have to be able to cite the Rules of Evidence and/or actual case law interpreting the Rule in your favor in previous cases.

      I understand that the overwhelming majority of people who comment here are not lawyers/did not go to law school, etc, so I am hopeful that a little bit of explanation on these matters is helpful.

      On a final note:
      If a party FAILS, at trial, to make an objection, the party WAIVES the right to “complain” about it on appeal.
      In other words, it is incumbent upon counsel to make any and all objections to questions during the trial that the PARTY (not necessarily the same counsel–in fact, it is just as common that trial counsel is NOT involved in an appeal) might wish to make an issue on appeal. (Note: in this case, Jodi Arias is one party; the State of Arizona is the other.)

      Really final note: No matter how egregious ALV’s opinions and testimony in this matter, I am sad to see people here referring to her sexuality, etc– as if gay bashing is appropriate in any situation. I don’t know what her private lifestyle entails, but I do know that it is irrelevant and attacks upon it only serve to reduce the quality of the discourse. It reminds me of Jodi Arias making childish and nasty comments about JM’s height, for instance. It is far more effective–and mature–to aim one’s criticism at the content of her testimony and professional background, as so many here have very skillfully accomplished on a daily basis.

        Good morning WhereIsShe, I appreciate your comments. I know you may have said, but you’re an attorney, yes? I recently completed my AAS/Paralegal and am trying to study for the exam. True we all have thoughts and opinions on this case and at times we may go off track, it is good that you (and others) are there to add a little direction/structure, and legal knowledge. This is my first time following a blog and I mainly just read along & keep up. Every now and then I have a thought that for some reason or other just stays in my head until I feel I have to put it in writing. I’m sorry to say that I don’t have a real knack for conveying my passion but it just helps to jot it down.

        Hi kCruz123-
        Yes, I am an attorney. I have been licensed to practice since 1992. (In other words, I am OLD! Ok-not THAT old! But I’ve been around the block, so to speak;)
        Good luck on your exam.
        It sounds as though you’ll do just fine.
        Not a bad idea to take a break from studying and stretch yourself in other ways.
        If you like to stretch out here, then enjoy it (but make sure the “stretching” doesn’t become your main activity!)

        The summer I took the bar exams (the firm I was hired into required that all associates in litigation departments take and pass TWO immediately), I used running outdoors as my stretch. Well that and watching some of the summer Olympics=)

        Wish you great success in your career=)

        Thanks for the good luck wishes. Don’t say old to me…I know old! 🙂 This will be my 3rd career. I was in the military for 23 years, first in administration then in respiratory therapy/sleep therapist. So, as soon as I ‘retired’ I went back to school.

        I did see this link to JA’s tweets & then seem to be in chronological order, since the one about short men & the other about Nancy Grace are still here I’m assuming this may be all that were sent out?!?!

        Thank you for the explanation. I hope you are not assuming I was one of the ones gay bashing. I do not partake in that activity when many do. I may not find a witness believable and don’t agree with their testiphony but attacking someone regarding their personal preferences is not my style.

      • Jay
        04/15/2013 at 12:31 pm

        Hi WhereIsShe:
        Two comments on your comments…

        First,I appreciated the legal expertise, cogently expressed. But not so much appreciated your clarifying declaration to DougIme that judges ‘don’t “sustain questions” which seemed phrased too pedantically for an 8-AM posting (not even thru my first cup of coffee): it was pretty obvious he meant to say he agreed that was why the judge ‘didn’t sustain objections against him.’ Which means I thought your correction was a wee bit condescending this early in the morning.

        Second: there are no absolutes, and gay-bashing (another one of these blanket terms used indiscriminately to cover a multitude of P.C. sins) is as acceptable as straight-bashing if merited. If LaViolette is a lesbian with a penchant for demonizing men don’t you think that’s relevant to her testimony about Travis? She certainly had no trouble assassinating his character in absentia. If she was married to a man but left him for a woman isn’t it possible she may have subconscious resentments to men in general? The literature — psychological and criminal — is full of cases involving man hating lesbians, or haven’t you heard of Valarie Solanas, the radical feminist lesbian who tried to murder Andy Warhol, and the author of the SCUM Manifesto (Society for Cutting Up Men) – and no, she didn’t mean cutting up photos for her scrapbook. And if LaViolette is a man hating lesbian why would you object to describing her that way? If the shoe fits, why not make her wear it?

    • 04/15/2013 at 12:21 pm

      I understood ya Mel! Don’t worry 😀

  29. 04/15/2013 at 3:31 am

    Hell again all – Loving the posts. I have 2 question and correct me if I’m wrong – I don’t mind.

    1) Did Jodi not say that her and Travis made video of their escapades. Did she not also say in all her interviews that she never went anywhere without her cameras – that she always had one in her purse and one in the car. Where are her cameras? Is this where her trophies of that horrible day are stored. Maybe sister or mom or aunt have them.

    2) Did they state that the Son of Sam law does not apply to her yet as she ha not been convicted so there is nothing they can do about it. But couldn’t the IRS (I think that’s what it is called in the states – if not sorry – I’m Canadian) not make her file a income tax form as she is making money on her art? Could the State of Arizona make her help pay for her defense? Just my thoughts.

    PS – one more thought – If mom, aunt or whoever thought she was a true DV victim/survivor would they not be wearing those purple ribbons from day 1.

    • 04/15/2013 at 12:25 pm

      I believe one of the cams was te one her att. asked to get back near beginning of trial.. Det Flores had it to them that very lunchtime.. Juan said they could have had it any time in the last 4 years .

    04/15/2013 at 4:01 am

    Question for legal eagles, please. Hypothetical situation. Assume a potential juror has survived voir dire and all that entails and has been sworn in. I’m clear on that process.

    Once the trial has started* can a juror ask to be excused because they have become so biased they won’t be unable to deliberate in good faith? What if they simply cannot listen to any more of the graphic testimony? Or look at such graphic evidence? What if they are so offended by the evidence and/or the testimony they cannot be fair and impartial?

    I have been wondering about this since WOBO was on the stand and spouting all that graphic bullshit; I stopped listening to the direct examination because I just couldn’t take it anymore. Initially, I was thinking about my mother, who would have been absolutely mortified to hear everything WOBO said, let alone see the photos. Then I realized I couldn’t listen to another minute of it, either. I certainly don’t consider myself a prude, and I am about as liberal as one person can be, but that was just disgrossting.

    I am certain they asked the potential jurors if they thought they would be able to handle the extremely graphic testimony and photos, and tried to prepare them for what the evidence would be, but really, how could you prepare 18 different people for what was about to transpire? No matter how prepared the jurors thought they were, I have to think they were shocked beyond belief at how lurid WOBO’s testimony was once she really got on a roll.

    So, if a juror felt this way could they ask to be excused?

    *Assume the trial has started, and is somewhere in the middle, not the day before summations.

    • WhereIsSHE
      04/15/2013 at 9:05 am

      If a juror tried to get off of the jury by saying that they had become too biased– the judge would instruct the juror to listen to ALL of the evidence before coming to a conclusion.
      (People do not get off of juries so easily once they are empanelled.)

      Likewise with “offensive” material. Jurors are subjected to graphic testimony and demonstrative evidence (photographs, videotapes, etc) every day.
      There are cases with far more disturbing testimony and demonstrative evidence played out in courtrooms all across this country on a regular basis.

      The case of Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom comes to mind, right off the bat.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murders_of_Channon_Christian_and_Christopher_Newsom
      The torture murders committed by Gary Heidnik come to mind:http://www.trutv.com/library/crime/serial_killers/weird/heidnik/index_1.html

      Right now– where I practice– the horrific case of Dr. Kermit Gosnell (the Philadelphia doctor who ran an abortion clinic where he GRUESOMELY committed HUNDREDS of late term murders on viable babies) is going on.
      Many are upset that this case has not garnered anywhere near the attention of the Arias trial (though the national media has finally taken some note of it) .http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2013/04/14-theories-for-why-kermit-gosnells-case-didnt-get-more-media-attention/274966/

      Now.. if a juror is truly ILL (as in medically diagnosed), the juror may be relieved of his/her duties on a case.

  32. kCruz123
    04/15/2013 at 4:08 am

    I found 2 interesting things today. The first one involves what I consider to be, at the very least a lack of morals. As you watch this (at points: 23-27 into the tape) it is plain to see that the lady in orange (aka: the Defense Team Mitigation Specialist), is very obviously trying to COVERTLY HAND OVER SOMETHING FROM JA TO HER MOTHER right after a court session. I am trying to remember if this is the day that it appeared JA was trying to hide a piece a paper under her a**. Watch this video very closely and you’ll see the Mitigation Specialist (ha, she makes a mockery of that title) as she hands over a piece of paper to JA’s mom:

    And the second thing I am wondering about is in regards to Dr. DeMarte. I noticed that the Defense has filed a: Motion in Limine to Preclude Dr. Demarte’s Conclusions Pursuant to “SARA”.


    I also read that there was supposed to be a ruling on in this on/about 2/2013, but am wondering if the ruling was postponed? I think this was around the time that Dr. DeMarte’s home was burglarized. I have found several different ideas, reference the acronym but this one sounds most interesting:


    • WhereIsSHE
      04/15/2013 at 9:22 am

      I didn’t look at the mitigation specialist stuff, because I was far more intrigued by your comments on the defense motion in limine to preclude Demarte’s conclusions pursuant to SARA. I cannot imagine that SARA is anything other than what you have linked according to your research.

      Without a copy of the actual motion, (was it contained in it’s entirety later in the court minutes? I didn’t bother to keep scrolling), it is hard to guess WHY they are seeking to have these conclusions precluded, although from a cursory review, SARA seems to require the examiner to interview both the alleged victim and the alleged perpetrator, which clearly cannot be accomplished when one of those parties has been killed by the other.
      Unlike ALV’s flimsy and ever-changing “continuum”, SARA is an accepted test, supported by proper scientific research and studies.
      Accordingly, IF it requires that both parties be interviewed, and one of those parties is not “available” for interview, the use of SARA may not be appropriate in this situation.
      Now.. whether or not the judge would PRECLUDE Demarte from testifying about her conclusions pursuant to SARA is another issue entirely.
      It is far more likely that the judge would permit the testimony, subject to cross-examination on the appropriateness of its use in this matter.
      But again- I am just taking a stab in the dark here, not having read the actual motion.

      Maybe I’ll gain enough patience to read more of the court minutes to see what the gist of their complaint is and come back with a more germane analysis for you.

      Love to see this kind of research and query here. Kudos on keeping track of such interesting legal matters in the case.

      • WhereIsSHE
        04/15/2013 at 9:28 am

        On an unrelated but interesting matter, I do note that there is a current defense Motion to Compel with regard to JOURNALS SEIZED from the defendant’s jail cell on or about April 1, 2013.

      Hi kCruz – You did good in scoping out that info on the defense Motion in Limine to try to keep out DeMarte’s conclusions on the SARA and in finding the assessment! Great job. Yeah, I bet they wanted to preclude her conclusions! As for the video – it happened prior to the butt sitting paper scenario although the day that Maria passed the note to Sandy Arias, JA had been caught in video doing other suspicious/strange things but not the one you mentioned. Maybe others will know more about these issues.

    Syntara [at # 206, previous page] — You mentioned the comment posted by Essem [at # 621, April 13, 2013, on the page before, which would be that of day forty-seven]. I had just finished a review of that which Essem had brought to everyone’s attention, and there had been some serious thought on that matter. What had been concluded might correspond with the other subject matter of yesterday’s post (which related to reasons for the demand of the presence of Alyce LaViolette — that included the possibility of proceedings brought against her in regards to sanctions for her unethical approach to a relative of Travis Alexander [during a break in Trial proceedings of a capital one murder case in the Court], Contempt of Court knowing [the witness had been reminded and KNEW she was providing testimony under OATH except] that she had chosen to ignore the constant reminder that the witness answer questions [competently and] in a professional manner [showing respect to ALL officers of the Court], impeachment because all of the falsehoods and bias had discredited the testimony so much that instruction could be given that the Jury could exercise a right to ignore the entirety of the testimony [or actually have the testimony stricken by the Judge] because of the credibility issue, and/or more questioning to discover if perjury charges would be filed for embellishing certain qualifications and fabricating [fulfillment of ALL criteria necessary to be recognized as an expert on] her Curriculum Vitae (which made it possible to be deemed an expert witness, with appropriate [ridiculously excessive] payments for her elevated status). It was thought more so after seeing one of your other comments that day [at # 232], of which was pasted the web address for that support page on FaceBook, that had been reviewed.

    You asked for a discussion if inclined. There should be. You are probably thinking the same thing that I am [that had been discovered by Essem], which is that a person posting on that other web site sure did seem to be Alyce LaViolette. Her writing was familiar because it was thought she had posted three times [at this site] on a previous post, back in March. It was also believed that the dodgy doctor (Richard Samuels) had posted that same day. While this is only conjecture, with no corroboration, common sense might dictate this to be the likelihood.

    The person who ran the other web site (referenced by Essem and Syntara) had made an accusation that one of the people commenting on the site, CASSANDRA, was actually Alyce LaViolette. That could be true. Back on March 14, 2013, at 4:01 P.M. (under comments for day 31), post # 117 addressed a person with the moniker of greykitty, who was believed to be Alyce LaViolette. Although this would have been a serious breach for an expert witness, it can not be put past her that it happened. The same is true for the other expert witness, Dr. Samuels.

    In a comment (posted March 14 as # 106), the first two paragraphs addressed the brief message posted by the person believed to have been Dr. Richard Samuels. The post was — “omg — it’s an ambush. I just saw the HLN TV moderators speaking of instruments, etc. They are way off base. This has nothing to do with anything of substance. The use of these words in the slide show is a ploy to admit this so-called expert’s reasoning for a diagnosis that has never been seen by the State and that is merely meant to come in to confuse the Jurors. It is my belief that the defense ran the gist of the basis for the defense presentation to be given by the expert witnesses by this room the other day. I sent a response to greykitty [in a personal comment], but it was probably too long for you to post. It was not felt necessary to respond to Salvandorun, because neither the defense presentation of Dissociative Identity Disorder which is known as the abbreviated DID (and more commonly called by its former identity Multiple Personality Disorder) nor the more colloquial Mixed Personality Disorder (also known as Personality Disorder Not Otherwise Specified) would be able to fly. The presentation would have been brand new (untimely) and not reviewed by the State. It was not believed that the defense would try to hide it in a Trojan Horse presentation — all wrapped up, with a pretty bow.”

    This was posted on day thirty-one, at this site. As you can see, the dodgy doctor did exactly what had been mentioned. He altered his diagnosis, but he pretended he had not, and he acted as though the second was that which he had originally planned. This was a very deceitful act (and NOT that clever). Just for good measure, the post left by Salvandorun was copied and then pasted as post # 110, on that same day. It is quite clear that the person posting was very familiar with the primary diagnosis for the condition of Jodi Arias and knew that the diagnosis would be modified at Trial (without seeing the patient/client and with no real basis other than it fit better with the testimony that Jodi Arias had just finished telling the Jury).

    Another person was addressed at # 117. This person had originally posted (as greykitty) at 6:43 A.M. on 03/08/13 [as # 69], at 4:27 P.M. on 03/08/13 [as # 112], and most especially at 2:02 A.M. on 03/09/13 [as # 162]. At # 105 that day, you can read a double response by MMD and CiCi’s Circle, when they smelled a disingenuous rat. On that date, donchais was holding down the fort from a barrage of rampaging TROLLS. Greykitty’s posts and some of the responses are at https://callsforjustice.wordpress.com/2013/03/07/jodi-arias-murder-trial-day-thirty/#comments

    The reply to greykitty, and explanation for why I held the belief that she was Alyce LaViolette is at https://callsforjustice.wordpress.com/2013/03/13/jodi-arias-murder-trial-day-thirty-one/#comments greykitty had admitted to watching the Trial every day. This is just one of the matters addressed in that missive. I believe that the person who posted as greykitty was Alyce LaViolette, and, if correct, this woman violated Court Rule, as she was not supposed to watch or listen to Trial testimony while waiting her turn as a scheduled expert witness. If this can be proven, her entire testimony would be worthless. However, the prosecutor might want to keep the testimony for some reason (because of no desire to see the case return if a New Trial were to be granted upon an Appeal being taken, for instance).

    It looks like the ball is in the prosecutor’s Court. The prosecutor can definitely accuse Alyce LaViolette with perjury. He also can impeach her because she is biased and is not credible. He can also ask the Court to find this so-called expert in contempt of Court for a myriad of reasons, least of which is accosting a relative of the victim while in the protection of the Trial Court. There are multitudes of sanctions available. First, this absurd Motion for Prosecutorial Misconduct must be heard. Maybe Wurmi has been filing these absurdities because he knows what the criminal lawyers on the defense team for Jodi Arias have been doing, and he is trying to cast the prosecutor in a bad light — since he realizes that he has been cast in the dark shadows. The Hearings scheduled for today and tomorrow will reveal the course chosen.

    Syntara — these are the postings by CASSANDRA who is believed to be Alyce LaViolette. If this is LaViolette, she is done. When I read these, they seemed very similar to those posts left by greykitty [around the first week of March]. What do you think? Would this woman be that ignorant? There are FIVE complete posts by CASSANDRA that I have copied off the web address http://tamaratattles.com/2013/04/10/jodi-arias-trial-post-for-wednesday-you-can-get-anything-you-want-at-alyces-restaurant-except-a-yes-or-no-answer/comment-page-1/#comment-34559 and pasted as follows:

    On April 11, 2013 at 9:05 P.M., Cassandra [in reply to KoKo’s comment about LaViolette’s hubris over her degree, etc.] said (when speaking highly of herself and disparagingly of others.) = “You are disgustingly disrespectful. This woman is extremely intelligent and insightful. I have personally had many of the experiences she speaks of and can honestly say she is right on target about everything. You all act like a bunch of headhunters. Jodie killed Travis for a reason. It is obvious nothing was planned out. He was leading a double life and all his money and connections are not going to save his name from that. She shouldn’t have killed him but she did and we need to understand why so people who find themselves victims of men like him can get help before it’s too late.”

    On April 12, 2013 at 9:41 P.M., Cassandra [in reply to Kristi’s comment that Jodi planned the murder, and that LaViolette was a lying idiot for thinking any differently] said (in a condescending fashion that was really long-winded) = “Your foul mouth is only exceeded by your lack of brain cells. If you had any background in psychology you would be able to understand the intricacies and dynamics of their relationship better. Take off the rose-colored glasses and look at the facts. Jodi is too smart to bungle a pre-meditated murder. And this was bungled from beginning to end because what ultimately happened was unplanned.

    “I have noticed that most of the commentators on this blog seem to be anything but critical thinkers. Maybe if you had more life experience you would be able to see further than the end of your nose. At age 64 and many cumulative hours of post-grad work in the psychology field it is relatively easy to spot someone who is an expert in the field. This woman has nailed it on the head. Alyce Laviolette has done a terrific job and the infinitesimal mistakes she has made is nothing more than human error –- of which I am sure you have been guilty of once or twice! And I’m sorry but she is the dignified one of the two. Martinez is nothing more than a little Napoleon bully who desperately wants to boost his low self-esteem by sending someone to death row –- even though she was also a victim in this situation. What a tragedy that would be.

    “It is obvious you don’t want to face the facts that Travis caused a lot of his own problems by not being able to keep his peter in his pants. He used his pseudo status to gain power over this woman by denigrating, deriding and dismissing her on a continual basis. She was guilty of nothing more than accommodating him in order to gain his affection. His murder was anything but “planned.” They have pretty much established this fact. It is obvious it was a crime of passion committed by a woman who had been pushed beyond the end of her rope. The reason it was so difficult for Travis’s friends to relate to her was because she thought on a higher plane than they did. She is extremely intelligent, articulate, and talented. Being around his friends was most likely terminally boring to her and it was difficult for her not to show it.

    “It is quite obvious you are a either one of Travis’s phony friends or a member of his family. Everyone of his friends they have interviewed on TV have come across as phony and/or superficial. As the saying goes, “birds of a feather flock together.”

    “I, on the other hand, don’t know Jodi from Adam. I am merely a person who looks at the facts and goes with my gut. I am not swayed by public opinion nor am I a cow, sheep or pig just following the herd as most are doing because of their inability to think objectively.”

    On April 12, 2013 at 10:33 P.M., Cassandra [in reply to Tango accusing certain people of professing education without accounting for others being educated] said (while deliberately using an insulting manner) = “If you would like to don your robe, go ahead. I like to stick with facts. If my advanced degrees have taught me to do that, then so be it……..you should not be threatened by that. They are out there for anyone to obtain.”

    On April 13, 2013 at 1:50 A.M., Cassandra [in reply to Alessa questioning the motive and identity of Cassandra] said (quite dismissively [but very similar to that of greykitty in post # 112 of day 30]) = “I’m disappointed to see this site is nothing more than one big mutual admiration society with only one opinion and a multitude of potty mouths who are not interested in the truth but only in pushing their beliefs onto everyone else. I was hoping this was a place a person could go to see a variety of opinions. It is sad to see that no one uses their education (if they even have one) –- doubtful), to express themselves properly. It is also sad to see the level the younger generation has stooped to. I will not be visiting this site again as no one seems to be able to think outside their box. I am terminally bored already. Have fun scratching each other’s backs.”

    On April 11, 2013 at 9:08 P.M., Cassandra [in reply to SweetTeaNShade, who was laughing with Steve joking over the bathroom breaks and depends underwear] said (with a very mean spirit) = “This kind of degrading talk should be obliterated.”

    On April 11, 2013 at 1:57 A.M., (Auric) = “Jodi arias will go free at the end of all this, or at worst have a hung jury.”

    • 04/15/2013 at 11:08 am

      the infinitesimal mistakes she has made is nothing more than human error –- of which I am sure you have been guilty of once or twice! And I’m sorry but she is the dignified one of the two.

      This is of particular significance— This spells extremely personal involvement.

      Jad did Greykitty disappear subsequent to the March 14 post?

      still reading

      • 04/15/2013 at 11:14 am

        Jad… this is a clue here but I am unfamiliar with exactly how she represents herself. If this is a direct cut and paste.. look at this

        Alyce Laviolette

        Would she usually capitalise the V there? If not this could be someone close to her but not her. Conversely, if this is how she informally refers to herself it would be a dead giveaway.

      • 04/15/2013 at 11:30 am

        I arrived on this site 14 March I’m pretty sure. The final post up there rings true of another poster’s exist. I have assumed since then that person posts under other names and I’m now wondering it there is a relationship between that poster and the former pseudonym Greykitty.

        The posts you have copied, at the very least, purvey an intimate knowledge of what LaLa could be thinking. I find it difficult to believe that just by watching this trial, and with an alleged profession in the human sciences, anyone could possibly reach the conclusions this person has leapt to,

        If it is LaLa or someone very close to her, they would be privy to her thoughts. To me that’s the only way anyone could have such astonishing ‘insight’.

That’s the second time it’s happened which is unheard of for me but I’ll take it since those are the only 2 good nights sleep I’ve gotten since this damn trial started.

    Good Morning! Two comments:
    1. About Juror 11. I heard a lot of coughing going on in the courtroom about the last 3 days. At one point during the coughing, I did notice the judge looking to her right and I thought about the coughing coming from a juror. Before that, I thought it was the gallery. So perhaps the juror is truly ill. BUT, since it was the weekend, why not give it another couple of days to heal. Guess the defense did not want to wait.
    2. Son of Sam law….don’t know if it even needs to apply. Someone was found guilty of killing a family member. The parents of the murdered person sued for wrongful death to prevent the murderer from making any money when they get out of jail (it was covered in the media and the killer will only be in their early 40’s). They were awarded millions. They know they will never collect a dime and they don’t care. They just wanted to prevent the murderer not to be able to live the lifestyle their child will never have.

    ooo ooo I’m reviewing the interrogation vids for stuff on my blog..and in vid 2 there is something I got before but didn’t process completely. I know I kmow old stuff but anyhow… re: Cancun

    She says she didn’t know he was taking Mimi until his memorial service… and she “thinks that’s awesome” ❓ present tense? Anyhow that’s another point..

    Detective Flores then relates how Mimi had rung Travis a week or so before they were due to leave and explained to him she didnt think of him “that way” and it broke Travis’ heart.That would make it around the 26th May.

    Jodi (forgetting herself for a moment, leans forward and with fake heartfelt softness states “I know”. Immediately realising what she’s done she sits back and corrects herself… “I mean, he didn’t tell me …… I found that out from my bishop” err Jodi too little too late… why would the bishop relay it in that way?

    Big sign here saying: She went to beg him to take her, he already had the go ahead from Mimi to take someone else.

    When he still refused would that have fed her inner rage! That with the 14 missed calls? oooeee!

      • 04/15/2013 at 12:01 pm

        exactly as if a bishop is going to say well you know Mimi rang him and told him to go to cancun with someone else if he wants cos she doesn’t want a serious relationship with him… now he’s heartbroken… and if it was after his death? as if that’s going to come up! not for a normal person they are just going to be talking about him in memorium not gossip mode. makes NO sense to someone who understands human nature

        Yeah, just like she said, and ALV repeated, that he threw her over the desk and did the same to her the day she killed him. Right! But yet, JA never said he raped her, she admitted all the sex acts were consensual. And still ALV used the same phrasing, he threw her over the desk or something like that, insinuating it wasn’t consensual. Should Martinez have made a point of that? I mean, you can’t have it both ways, either he raped her or the sex was consensual. But the defense has been getting away with playing the rape card somehow.

  43. 04/15/2013 at 10:13 am

    thought so… ok get this: this is me going through vid 2 at the moment

    Detective Flores asks her why then? Why did you keep going back? Her response is that she now has a perpective that she’s worked out with her bishop. He’s given her books to read and now she’s even futher along in her spirituality than she was prior to “all that”. She states when she was baptised she really wasn’t “there yet” her and Travis were still “making out” but hadn’t gone all the way. She obviously uses words from the bishop saying that “the making out drove the ‘spirit away’ ” and a couple of times she didn’t answer his text messages and he sent sad faces. She said he kept calling.

    Think it’s safe to say here Jodi transposes her and Travis’ exchanges. She would have been doing the calling, he would have been doing the ignoring. Also she testified on the stand they had anal sex the night of her baptism, well this sure contradicts that statement!

    • Nienna
      04/15/2013 at 10:20 am

        04/15/2013 at 11:58 am

        Anything and everything she can read and learn to support her claim of “self-defense” is what she would certainly do her best to manipulate anyone and everyone into giving to her.

        I imagine she uses a combination of sympathy-inducing behavior, flattery and flirting to get what she wants.

        Oh My! I must say that I am very disappointed with ALL of you. It is so distressing to see Fat Bashing instead of legal talk “appropiriate” to the trial.Really, I thought you here more “mature” and “insightfull.” Surely, even though many of you are not annointed by a legal degree, and therefore shouldn’t really speak on legal matters, I thought you’d show some maturity ,

      If you look at her hands during the trial, she has the oddest fingers and hands that I have seen on a woman. They’re don’t quite look like a man’s, they’re just very strange!!!!! Creepy kinda!!!

      • Nienna
        04/15/2013 at 11:02 am

        I thought so too! Very non-feminine hands!

        she uses them very slowly and deliberately.. like every movement is contrived or at least deliberately enacted that way. That’s cos it’s all learnt. Very strange isn’t it? Creepy is the right word.

    Here is a post that Katiecoolady sent out on twitter. It was originally posted on Websleuths by ProtectOurKids

    I wonder how many jurors held back tears as they heard of a 6 year old who had been repeatedly beaten by his mother and father. Who remembered living under a car part in a yard. Who remembered a mother sleeping off drug induced stupors. Who remembered searching for food and having to eat moldy bread. Who endured the laughter of going to school covered in filthy clothes…..

    As you, Alyce, recited this from Travis’s own writings, I wonder how many jurors glanced over at his siblings realizing that those sitting there also went through this childhood experience and the ages they might have been at the time. You know, Alyce, I did not see a tear in your eye as you recited this horrific story. Nor did I hear a break in your tone of voice.

    Also, thank you, Alyce for giving the juror’s and the world a chance to see the real Travis. When asked about emails you did mention the ones from two women who recited to Travis REAL domestic violence in their marriages. And what was that you said Travis told them, Alyce? Did I hear you say that Travis told them “THAT IS NOT RIGHT”. You said Travis knew his scriptures well and was a mentor in PPL and the Church. And he advised these women from his spiritual side vs his sexual side, right Alyce?

    As you sat on the throne of a court room witness chair you were so quick to judge so many things. Yet you refused to see that you did not have the experience to judge Travis. You, who have no idea how couples speak to each other in today’s world vs the world of the 60’s and 70’s chose to sit in that seat. You spoke of rant’s and degradement yet you have no idea in this day and age how couples speak to each other in private do you? You have no idea about words used to banter back and forth via texting do you Alyce? You have no idea what words or tone used in written words mean when used in a sexual content, or used between two people, do you?

    No, Alyce, you do not know. But, the majority of us and the juror’s who represent us do.

    You, Alyce,you chose to tell us about what a wonderful motivational speaker Travis was. I suggest you read some of those speeches and learn from this young man exactly why the world has chosen to regard you in a very negative way. It is 90% from your word and only 10% from your body language.

    Hi Nienna, Wendy, MMD, syntara, grace, wis, liane, Cruz, jad….sorry if I missed any. TY for your brilliant contributions, donchais and so many posters here give so much. i have zero criminal trial knowlege, im just a boring accountant.🔍💵. Ty Whereisshe for the link to the court dockets….I’m peeking on there now.

    After the trial ends, does anyone know where the sealed minutes will appear(on the maricopa county website?) and all the transcribed court discussions docs, i would love to hear what they say during some of those bench meetings and chambers conversations. The dockets only records a summary of the days events, where is the beef?

    This is an example of docket detail.
    Ex: IT IS ORDERED all bench conferences shall remain sealed not to be produced or transcribed until the conclusion of the trial.
    4/8/13. 9:55 a.m. Court convenes in chambers with Defendant, counsel for the Defendant and Alyce LaViolette present.

    (isn’t this a version of “if you were in my group, I’d give you a time out”?)

    Really, Robert?
    You equate my mere sadness over gay bashing with being a “blog nanny”? I certainly didn’t attempt to lay down any rules. I just expressed my own personal sadness over it.
    Call me a nanny all you like.
    I am not comfortable with gay-bashing or racism, and I stand proudly in my shoes.

    As for my comments on the legal issues, I think you are missing the tone of my posts.
    My intention is to share what I know with others who read here who have an interest in those matters.

    If I somehow missed (up above somewhere, perhaps?) that I have become the target of such misunderstanding, let me apologize to any who have been offended.
    I meant no harm, and certainly know that this blog is a great place to share opinions, feelings, humor and the like.

        Lisa I agree with you. I like this site because it has gathered so many people who want justice for Travis. But I’m not sure why some feel it necessary to produce such stuff.

    • 04/15/2013 at 12:34 pm

      The only comments I’ve made regarding ALV’s sexuality, is in regards to how certain elements of our media are beginning to circle the wagons around her, in light of the recent, and overwhelming criticism of her “witness testimony” in this trial.

      I simply made the point that the reason the media are protecting her, to one degree or another, is because she is a member of two classes the media hold sacred: she’s a lesbian, and a feminist (circa 1970s). The media could really care less about the specifics of what our legitimate criticisms of this woman are; they see ALV–homosexual and feminist–being attacked, and they will not allow that happen. If ALV were a Christian counselor, the media would’ve led the charge in castigating her.

      Now, onto the trial!

    kCruz123 :

    I also read that there was supposed to be a ruling on in this on/about 2/2013, but am wondering if the ruling was postponed? I think this was around the time that Dr. DeMarte’s home was burglarized. I have found several different ideas, reference the acronym but this one sounds most interesting:
    Cruz, this was a great, Ty. Does this website contain the court transcriptions? I'll save the link if yes. 😻

    • kCruz123
      04/15/2013 at 2:26 pm

      Annie, this is a site that has the minutes, but not transcripts. It is a ‘timeline’ of all proceedings (motions, meetings in judge’s chambers, etc. Alot of the info gives dates/times but then states that the info discussed is ‘sealed’ until further notice. I did find it interesting that for Dr. Demarte, the defense wanted to stop her presentation of results for something referred to as “SARA”. It doesn’t detail what this is & just from searching online I found that this is an acronym for numerous things that could be related to this case and Dr. Demarte’s practice. 1) Spousal Assault Risk Assessment, 2) Sexual Assault Risk Assessment Guide, and 3) Sexual Addiction Risk Assessment (SARA).

      Per my post above: a “motion in limine is: “A motion in limine is a motion that asks the judge to prevent certain pieces of evidence from being brought up during the trial. The phrase “in limine” is Latin and means “at the threshold.” Motions in limine are used to stop certain evidence “at the threshold” so that they don’t get “in the door” and infect the case.”
      (ref: http://www.rotlaw.com/legal-library/what-is-a-motion-in-limine/ )

      This site is made for kids but it has a lot of interesting information on how an investigation/trial proceeds, along with legal terms and information.

    Marilyn I watched Dear Zacharey this weekend. It was so very sad. Andrew Bagby was another Travis and Shirley Turner was another hodi. His parents wouldn’t give up and got the laws changed here. Kudos to them. One thing was mentioned that was true re Newfoundland weather 8 months of winter and 4 months of bad weather. Hi MMD, Syntara and Bubblebutts. Looks like it is coming on gotta go.

    Douglme :Thank you for the explanation. I hope you are not assuming I was one of the ones gay bashing. I do not partake in that activity when many do. I may not find a witness believable and don’t agree with their testiphony but attacking someone regarding their personal preferences is not my style.

    Sorry if you thought that part was directed to you Douglme=( It was in response to another post, and I opted not to reply to that one directly.

    For you, I just wanted to clarify the procedure on an in-case-you-wanted-to-know sort of basis.
    I love that people who may not be familiar with the process are so involved in the case, and I know that the courtroom proceedings and “lingo” can be like a foreign language at times, so sometimes just a simple explanation of the rules of the courtroom make following what is going on with the lawyers and the judge a little easier to interpret.

    Yet another example of a system that is broken. CYA is not restricted to government bureaucrats. It is alive and very well preserved by our courts.A rule isn’t really a rule since the lawyers approach on every other question. Who doesn’t know their job in that equation? Oh my, we dont want to be “appealed” because we didnt make the victims family sit 2 feet beind the murderer in the JURY BOX to make them all “feel” like they really know what the photographer–whose father worked at NBC-thinks.

    “cpu gp twice HD graphics card”–okay the guy has the lingo.
    He doesn’t testify much; he’s a busy guy, doesn’t work just for one side. About 12 for the State now and maybe same amount for the defense.’ I just “enhance” and “clean up” photos and makes no interpretation’
    No qualification as an “expert” (he says there are “so-called experts” that go to school. He says, if you do it all the time,you figure it out.
    He name drops so that we are imptressed. Worried that his info might be not so interesting I guess.
    All this for a photo–the last known photo of their brother alive and they put them through this for this photo?It better be worth it.

    This guy testified before for the defense. He was after Chris Hughes I think. I didn’t pay much attention to his testimony tho – something bout pulling info from camera & phones. I just remember him from hanging around the defense table after his initial testimony. Not sure why he’s back.

      04/15/2013 at 1:27 pm

      I would not think any – seems like the defense is really stretching here. (this is the defense witness right ?). Although I am skeptical that judge will allow jury to hear this. Seems almost to speculative.

  118. 04/15/2013 at 1:24 pm

    What is with all these defense “experts” who want to impress us with how hard they work? They insist on implying attorneys are falling all over themselves, clamoring for their knowledge, desperate to have them on their case. ALV spent “44 hours” interviewing, endless hours reading and reviewing; this jerk works 7 days a week . . . How many hours do they think Juan has put in on this case? Do they think he doesn’t work 7 days a week? Get over yourself, people,

  158. WhereIsSHE
    04/15/2013 at 1:54 pm

    Jay :Hi WhereIsShe:Two comments on your comments…
    First,I appreciated the legal expertise, cogently expressed. But not so much appreciated your clarifying declaration to DougIme that judges ‘don’t “sustain questions” which seemed phrased too pedantically for an 8-AM posting (not even thru my first cup of coffee): it was pretty obvious he meant to say he agreed that was why the judge ‘didn’t sustain objections against him.’ Which means I thought your correction was a wee bit condescending this early in the morning.
    Second: there are no absolutes, and gay-bashing (another one of these blanket terms used indiscriminately to cover a multitude of P.C. sins) is as acceptable as straight-bashing if merited. If LaViolette is a lesbian with a penchant for demonizing men don’t you think that’s relevant to her testimony about Travis? She certainly had no trouble assassinating his character in absentia. If she was married to a man but left him for a woman isn’t it possible she may have subconscious resentments to men in general? The literature — psychological and criminal — is full of cases involving man hating lesbians, or haven’t you heard of Valarie Solanas, the radical feminist lesbian who tried to murder Andy Warhol, and the author of the SCUM Manifesto (Society for Cutting Up Men) – and no, she didn’t mean cutting up photos for her scrapbook. And if LaViolette is a man hating lesbian why would you object to describing her that way? If the shoe fits, why not make her wear it?

    Sorry if it was too lecture-ish so early in the a.m.
    Was not meant in a condescending tone; was meant just to clarify for those who might wish to learn more about the intracasies of courtroom proceedings. Perhaps it was too much. I’ll certainly accept that as constructive criticism.

    I tend to think in terms of being in the courtroom, so, no, I don’t think her life history (married to a man; left him for a woman–as you state, I have no knowledge of that) is legally relevant.
    I think her obvious bias in favor of Jodi and her obvious prejudice against Travis speaks for itself.
    Take her personal life out of the equation and you are still left with a tainted, invalid opinion.

    Not sure why two women who have nothing to do with this case (the Andy Warhol example and the other) have anything to do with this dicussion. Same for guesswork about this witness’s personal life and how it may or may not have anything to do with her opinions in this case.
    I think it’s rather easy to take apart her opinions just based on the actual facts of the case, without resorting to generalizations and name-calling.

    I was simply stating that it made me sad– the generalizations.
    If I were on a site where someone was being generalized about for being hetero, I would feel the same way.

    I have been very clear that I am disgusted by her testimony, and particularly the things she has said about–and attributed to–Travis, based on the words of a known and proven liar.
    There is a big difference between someone being gender-biased (which ALV clearly has shown herself to be) and a “man-hater”.
    Plenty of people, straight and gay alike, are gender-biased, but it does not logically follow that they are actual “haters” of the opposite gender.

    I think Juan Martinez did a fabulous job in the courtroom of exposing her obvious gender bias.

      She has a major problem: she ADMITTED, under oath, to killing Travis.
      FYI: it wouldn’t change her plea. Her plea is “Not Guilty”.
      It would only change her defense–and it is way too late for that. Way, way, way, way, way too late. She has already admitted it; she had Dr. Fog explain WHY she doesn’t remember it– remember– it was so “traumatic” that she suffered PTSD and therefore her amygdala and her hippocampus (allegedly) stopped her brain from forming any memories of it. Then, she had ALV go and on about domestic violence and abuse in order to (allegedly) “justify” her “response” to her claim of alleged “fear” for her very life.

      There is also absolutely zero forensic evidence of any other person having been there. None.

  232. WhereIsSHE
    04/15/2013 at 2:47 pm

    My guess about why the judge called all counsel to the bench before this oral argument is that she admonished both sides not to engage in ad hominem attacks. (They both took pot shots at each other over the motion for mistrial related to the photo ops, etc.)

    Nurmi up: arguing nonsense. It was not bullying or witness intimidation. It was a brief, heated exchange.
    The judge is not going to agree that Juan bullied or itimidated theses witnesses in her courtroom, right before her very eyes (otherwise she’d be ruling tht she permitted it).

    Motion will obviously be denied.

    Absolutely right Mr. Nurmi. It is a court of law and you are making a mockery of it. Your defendant sits there and smirks and pushes the limits as far as she can and you try to make something out of nothing and get a mistrial. I cannot believe all the trivial things you bring up. Unlike Mr. Martineze I have seen the tweets. You need to reprimand your client. You are right this isn’t second grade but clearly you are the ones acting as if it is.

    As Juan told the court, the State is in a tough position with regard to investigating Arias’ tweets. You know they would love to bring it on, but they have to be cautious here.
    Jodi was loving that… until the judge made clear that she would consider a motion and argument on the issue.
    Now, the judge did not have to add that last part.
    She could have just ruled on the motion and let it be.
    She clearly wanted to send a message to Jodi.
    But Jodi, being Jodi,… we’ll have to wait and see.
    Her lawyers– though defending her Constitutional right to express herself in response to Juan’s request to have the judge Order Jodi to stop the tweeting via her pal– certainly do not want her to be engaging in the tweeting either.

    Does anyone have a link to ALL of the tweets? I have only seen a few so far. (I know she took shots at Juan’s height; her perception of his “anger mgmt issues”; the tweets about thanking god for 5 day weekends; the quoting of Joseph Conrad and the like, but I didn’t see any where she made reference to her own testimony. If someone has those, please share a link.)

    The judge cannot stop the tweeting entirely, but if Jodi is commenting on the testimony and/or evidence, the judge MIGHT be able to enter an Order.

    It appears as though the State Attorneys Office has opted to err on the side of caution on this one though.

    IMO, it only hurts Jodi to make the snide, sarcastic comments on twitter, so I say: let her continue to be her own ruin.

    • MMD
      04/15/2013 at 3:18 pm

      OK I can understand if they are going to have a closed session without the jury if they are talking about ALV approaching Sam but wouldn’t they go after her about lying about her credentials, etc. in open court if they were thinking of charging her with perjury???? Thanks 🙂

      • NancyB
        04/15/2013 at 3:24 pm

        Katie Cool stated on the radio show last night that she knows for a fact that that matter of ALV approaching Sam has been dealt with. So that’s not it.

      • NancyB
        04/15/2013 at 3:26 pm

        This judge nor Juan intend to charge her with perjury! Witnesses lie on the stand all the time and almost never are they charged with perjury. If they did, that would finally give Nurmi a valid reason to file a motion for mistrial – not going to happen.

      • WhereIsSHE
        04/15/2013 at 3:50 pm

        Yes. I don’t know where the notion of the veracity of her c.v. originated.
        If there was an issue –in addition to the “Key Note Speaker” issue that Juan brought up during her cross-exam– he certainly would have nailed her on it during his cross.

        No clue what this could be about. We’ll have to wait to see if something makes it onto the official record (or gets leaked somehow).

    • 04/15/2013 at 3:22 pm

      WIS thankyou for dumbing it down so even I can clearly understand it! I am thinking Juan would not come unprepared so this is a we are watching kind of thing?

      • WhereIsSHE
        04/15/2013 at 4:01 pm

        Yeah, Syn.
        I think Juan knows exactly what she has been up to (though –as he represented to the judge– he may not have bothered to look at all of her dumbass tweets). SOMEONE in the state’s attorneys office will certainly have been on it, like white on rice.
        They have had a discussion about how to handle it, as Juan also told the judge.
        He knows what she said about him. He just couldn’t care less, on a personal level.
        The immature jabs of a self-absorbed little monster are nothing this prosecutor can’t handle.
        Unlike the childish insinuation in her tweet, Juan is very assured of his manhood!
        Gotta be thick-skinned to try murder cases. Exposes you to a heck of a lot worse than childish name-calling.

        I think he was letting Jodi know that he knows and that it’s sort of a no-skin-off-his-own-back kind of thing, but he was letting her know that he knows.
        And, of course, he was letting the judge know–and the judge took his cue and let Jodi know that the court is now aware, regardless of whether or not the court can do anything about it at the moment.

        Was a good time–and manner (sort of off-handedly) to bring it up.
        You gotta hand it to Juan: his timing is impeccable.

      • 04/15/2013 at 4:05 pm

        Thanks, stephanie.
        If that is the sum total of all of her tweets (*minus the height pokes at Juan), I don’t see anything about the content of any actual trial testimony (other than perhaps the one about Gus Searcy–though even that is very vague) which might prompt the judge to enter any kind of Order against her.
        What I do note is how good this woman is at shooting (*first Travis, sadly, and now: herself in the foot).
        What is more telling of how utterly lacking she is in the capacity for REMORSE???
        My god, but her tweets are all about her (imagined) fandom. It’s “unreal” to those of us who have a working conscience.

        Here she is– on trial for murdering the man she claimed/claims to “love”; a man who obviously suffered grievous bodily harm, not to mention sheer terror, at her own, bloody hands, and all she cares about is her stupid “artwork” and a website and the like???

        There is no rehabilitating a person who has no conscious (as Syn has explained in detail on other threads re: sociopaths).

        Just saying it’s the prerogative of the person with the degree. Some insist, (Dr. Samuels, Dr, Phil, Dr. Dyer), many do not. Bill Cosby uses “Dr.” even though his many doctorates are merely honorary. Still within his rights. One can of course always address people however one wishes.

        Exactly. I have an MBA and know people who sign their emails and other correspondence listing the MBA after their names. I would never dream of doing that, as it seems pretentious and condescending. Like your email or letter should automatically be considered with reverence because you have an MBA after your name. I would far rather have someone actually read what I have to say and respect it on his merits, rather than throwing my degree around as if it means something all on it’s own.

  268. Schaeffer
    04/15/2013 at 3:25 pm

    For once, I think the Judge came across as having some backbone. She made it clear she is NOT going to declare a mistrial, and she is tired of hearing about it based on anything Juan has done. For her to say, “The court finds NO evidence the prosecutor engaged in anything even remotely unethical” is strong language for her. The prosecution continues to come across as unprofessional, petty, and just downright bratty.

    The defense is so obvious in their constant monitoring of social media. There are too many times they have quoted something nearly verbatim from this site, and I’m sure from others as well. If they had a legitimate complaint it would be different, but they come across as merely jealous because no one likes them, their client, their witnesses, or their strategy. Well, this isn’t junior high, Wurmi. The Judge is NOT going to order the public at large to be nice to you.

    The defense cannot continue to have it both ways. Today, whining about social media blew up in their face. I bet Wurmi wishes he’d never strayed onto that topic, because it came to light about WOBO’s twitter account. When Juan files a motion to put an end to WOBO’s tweeting, however she is getting it done, Wurmi will have no one to blame but himself. As Juan said, she is under subpoena, and subject to the same admonitions as any other witness. The court should cite her for contempt. Even if Juan doesn’t file a motion, I hope the Judge shuts WOBO down, since the jail seems to be unable to stop it.

    MMD – Sorry I missed you the other day. I was thinking of you though. As I was trying to type and get caught up my dogs kept “beaking” me with their noses to get me to pet them. My hands flying off the keyboard; took me forever. My backspace key is done worn out now! LOL!

    I know LOTS of PhDs who wouldn’t THINK of referring to themselves –outside an academic conferenece that used it, as “doctor.” VP Biden’s wife, imho, look sfoolish when she – of community college teaching fame – is referred to as “Doctor” on formal occasions. I’m like LaLa, I think if you graduate from medical school and are liocensed, you’re a “doctor.” Everybody else is something else–all good things; just not “doctor” in my book.

      plus the number of times i think it was wilma… called him Mr and had to correct herself even she didn’t find it natural calling him doctor and he was her witness!

        Report I just saw on CNN said winners crossed the finish line three hours previously — which means it could have been much worse earlier.

      Boston police saying 28 injured and 2 dead.
      They won’t speculate as to whether this was terrorism.

      Awful, awful news=(

      Our malls, our movie theaters, over elementary schools and highschool and college campuses… our streets.
      When I grew up (born in the mid-60s), we ran and played outside all day; never had a fear of so much violence.

      I think about the children of the future; about our sons (both in their 20s) having kids in the future, and it scares me to imagine what kind of world they will know.

      • Chrissie A
        04/15/2013 at 4:26 pm

        I’m sure it will be investigated properly, however what the media fear mongers do with it will be another matter.

      • 04/15/2013 at 4:31 pm

        yeah. thats the issue

      • 04/15/2013 at 4:25 pm

    ABC Australian BC:

    6:21am: The Associated Press, citing an intelligence official, says two explosive devices have been found at the Boston Marathon.

    6:15am: US media is reporting a small home-made bomb was the cause of at least one of the explosions. No official confirmation yet.

    6:13am: Former Australian marathon champion Rob De Castella is in Boston and is trying to find a Darwin woman running in the event.

    Emma Cameron was competing in the marathon as part of the Indigenous Marathon Project.

    Mr De Castella believes Ms Cameron is OK because she was a long way from the finish line when the explosions happened.

    6:07am: Boston Police have confirmed two deaths.

    6:34am: AEST BREAKING: Reuters is reporting another explosion at Boston’s JFK Library, south of the CBD.

    Boston police confirms another explosion at JFK Library
    – @ReutersUS
    6:32am: Australian Jeff Hunt, who finished in the top 15 along with Lee Troop, has spoken to ABC News Breakfast.

    “I was in my hotel room when I [heard] what turned out to be an explosion which actually went off about quarter to 3, I think. I came through, we got ushered out. All the elite athletes were in the hotel when all this went off, and basically ended up having a Twitter explosion and seeing things going down and finding out that a couple of bombs have gone off and we’re in lockdown.

    “We’re staying about 200, 300m from the finish line and the bombs went off about 200, 300m off the finish line, so just as the bulk of the 20,000 were coming through.

    “[I] had finished, [was] going through the recovery, had come upstairs, had a shower and I heard it go off. I didn’t think much thought of it. I thought that something big had dropped or fallen over or something like that. I’ve never heard an explosion at all in my life.

    “New York I naturally – I thought it was something else. I mean, I wouldn’t think that anyone wouldn’t think that anyone would want to do something like that. I mean, I’m an optimist, and it was such a great day, everything was perfect and the whole city was in good spirits, everything was going really, really well, so that thought never ever entered my mind.”

      04/15/2013 at 4:46 pm

      • 04/15/2013 at 4:49 pm

        ya this is latest tweet

        6:37am: It’s unclear what’s happening at the JFK Library: the Library itself has tweeted this:

        Fire in building is out, appears to have started in the mechanical room of new building. All staff and visitors are accounted for and safe.
        – @JFKLibrary
        Investigators are investigating. Any tie to Boston Marathon explosions is pure speculation. More information as we receive it.

    Wow, a Saudi National is the suspect…color me surprised. I’m sure our diligent media will dutifully ignore this man’s religious affiliations.

    I’m sure he’s just misunderstood. We Americans must have pushed him to committ this type of act. I’m sure DHS is formulating a similar response as we speak.

    04/15/2013 at 5:07 pm

    Dunno why HLN keeps saying it happened 2 hours into the race–in the bomb footage you can clearly see the marathon timer says 4 hrs and 9 minutes. The winners would have come in around 2hrs and 10 min to 2 hrs and 30 min, but at 4 hrs 10 min there would still be plenty of runners crossing the finish line. As you can see on the video. This is just terrible. Makes me glad I’m a bit of a recluse.
