Is Jose Baez a Slow Learner?

21 Jan

On January 19, 2011, defense attorney Jose Baez filed his third motion requesting additional investigative hours be approved by the court.  The motion may be found at the following link.

Prior to the filing of this motion, Judge Perry has advised Mr. Baez and his co-counsel Mr. Mason on more than one occasion the court will only approve hours for which adequate justification is submitted.  In order for the court to approve any additional investigative hours, the court must review specific details of how the hours are to be used.  In the last hearing on this issue, the judge found many of the requested hours were for tasks which cannot be paid by the state under hours for investigation.  The judge also made comments about the state not providing funding for “fishing expeditions”.

In order to determine if Mr. Baez learned the lesson the judge has been attempting to teach while ruling on the previous two requests, we will examine the following quote from the current motion.

“4. Furthermore, the State has filed 18 Notice of Provision of Supplemental Discovery, which includes more than 9,600 pages and 165 audio files of discovery, all of which need to be reviewed and investigated by the defense.”

“the State has filed 18 Notice of Provision of Supplemental Discovery” – The State has followed the standard court procedures and filed discovery.  We assume “Notice” should have been plural.

“which includes more than 9,600 pages and 165 audio files of discovery” – This is a description of the discovery.  Mr. Baez is attempting to persuade the court the number of pages and audio files is extreme.

“all of which need to be reviewed and investigated by the defense.” – “all of which” refers to the discovery, all of the discovery filed since May 7, 2010.  The defense is admitting they have neither reviewed nor investigated any discovery which was filed later than May 7, 2010.  Mr. Baez is also implying the previous two requests for investigative hours did not include any hours to investigate any of this portion of the discovery.

Mr. Baez fails to provide any details as to the exact areas of the discovery filed between May 7, 2010 and January 19, 2011 which must be “investigated”.  It is reasonable for the court to assume the discovery must be “reviewed”, but a review does not require investigative hours.  It is not reasonable for the court to assume all of the discovery must be “investigated”.  Mr. Baez must demonstrate to the court the need for investigation, which this motion fails to do.

We have learned Mr. Baez has an expectation the court will approve additional investigative hours based upon his personal non-review of the discovery, some of which has been available to him in excess of six months.

We have learned Mr. Baez is a procrastinator who is not up-to-date as to the state’s case against his client.

We have learned Mr. Baez has not grasped the instructions given to him by the court or he is unwilling to comply.

We have learned the odds against Mr. Baez being granted his full request of 300 additional hours are staggering.

      Baez blushes through his ears. Is this a murder trial or a date at El Torito?

        His Poker Face is virtually non-existent. He can’t NOT smirk. You almost feel bad for him. Almost.

      LOL Gotta love that it shows he really does know how to press the mute button…..if only the rest of the universe could mute him!

    “We have learned Mr. Baez has not grasped the instructions given to him by the court or he is unwilling to comply.”~ BS
    Perzactly Bullstopper.
    It seems like he’s also unwilling to learn what procedures are expected so naturally he can’t grasp them.
    It also seems like his arrogant defiant personality is finally catching up with him. That kind of smack talk is great for a 30 second spot on some tabloid show but in a court of law..not so much.
    All that rope he’s been given for his mistakes and ignorance is starting to curl up around his neck. He thought he’d be the darling of the court, the imp, who could turn in half baked motions, file things late, sneak things in and out of the jail, etc. He thought he could ride this right to the end being a half witted atty, all the high expectations lowered specially for him. Surprise, surprise….
    Good article, thanks

    i noticed most of the last billing is for mitigation witnesses (and it appears those don’t WANT to be contacted)

    for all their pretestations about the muck up of justice and their clients innocence they are spending an awful lot of time on mitigation…i’m hoping the JAC will show up for this hearing and hold their feet to the fire on what they are spending/billing. jmho

    LOL good one andrea.

    Have a great day Mr. Kronk 🙂

    Your past is your business and it will stay that way.

    A hearing was set for Monday. Judge Perry is rolling with it 🙂

    Game Over.

  8. Andrea January 21, 2011 at 9:19 pm #

    Oh, Excellent! This is exactly the situation with Baez. It’s almost as if he’s using his lack of experience with the law to manipulate the system. It’s as if he’s purposely playing dumb to try to finagle what he wants. I also remember the Judge making it perfectly clear that the investigator activities must be legitimate, and not based on these flimsy “fishing expeditions.” But, time after time after time, he does the opposite of what the court wants. I would not be at all surprised if Baez is not sanctioned again, or worse, found in contempt.
    If his submission of discovery is not up to par with what the judge ordered, there will be a fireworks show in that courtroom that i hope will rival any on the fourth of July!

    Honestly, this guy (Baez) is a travesty and is making a mockery of the legal profession. As much as I would HATE to see this saga drag on, I really think Baez needs to be removed and have Casey appointed a public defender. A delay I’m sure, but it will be game on, game over. GUILTY as charged. At least the taxpayers would not have to pay for a re-trial.

    Jose Baez = train wreck
    I want to avert my eyes, but I can’t!
    Justice for Caylee means keeping a close eye on this “lawyer” and his island of misfit toys….

    “Is Jose Baez a Slow Learner?”

    The answer to this question depends on how “slow learner” is defined versus “non-learner.”

  12. becca January 22, 2011 at 5:45 pm #

    I don’t think he is a slow learner, I really think he simply doesn’t care. For Mr. Baez, this case was never about actually defending Casey, it was about becoming famous. He always thought the real work would be done by people like Lyons. his record long before this case show a long history of laziness, short cuts and shady dealings.

  13. Molly January 22, 2011 at 6:35 pm #

    becca – you’ve got that right! it looks like theonly thing he’s done is that color coded chart that he grasps like a life line in court. he never comes prepared with paperwork for what the hearing is about or he can’t find it or he’s still waiting on “someone” else for something. he thinks he can go to court, throw around a few comments, be excused & go back to doing whatever it is he does. not to mention blatantly ignoring court orders. some keyplayers have now changed & things are heating up directly for him, he’s floudering.

    Why are these so called experts (CM) Not assisting Jose with filing these motions. Is Jose not willing to listen to those that have been around the block a few times? I will admit I am not that impressed with Cheney Mason this far. But I do think he knows how to file motions. Then again maybe not. Geesh!

    • Venice January 22, 2011 at 10:52 pm #

      Hi Shyloh! It’s good to see you again, and please keep posting here:)

      • shyloh January 24, 2011 at 9:02 am #

        Hey Venice, this “no life blogger” (according to Cindy Anthony) had to do some extra work at the office. I need to stop that. So I haven’t been blogging much haha. She’s probably happy about that. Only if Cindy knew. Caylee Marie Anthony is my life till she gets her justice…..THANK YOU Venice.

    Pleading “Not Guilty” was the biggest lie she told and the one with the deadliest of consequences. The biggest mistake after that was hiring Mr Baez.I will never understand why no one could convince her to take a plea. I can’t understand why a malignant narcissist could overlook the potential for freedom even if they had to wait 35 years.

    “A plea of not guilty is a denial of every material allegation in the indictment or information on which the defendant is to be tried”.

    Mr Baez will be approaching senior citizen status and Ms Anthony will still be knocking at his door. A couple of others lawyers might be willing to knock it down. Pretty sad.

    • Venice January 23, 2011 at 1:12 pm #

      That’s a sociopath for you. What’s even more disturbing is when Baez stated…”my client is INNOCENT of all charges”. LOL. OK. I guess we’ll see his “truth” at trial.

    Venice-So true.Psychopaths have quite a cunning way of drawing in those who they can manipulate, deceive and eventually ruin.

    • Venice January 23, 2011 at 7:14 pm #

      I couldn’t agree more!!!! Great insight Anon!

    God, I hate hypocrisy. After all the slander on Kronk and with Snoop enlightening us with her theory that Kronk could have snatched Caylee from the Anthony’s back yard, the slander has now amazingly shifted.

    jbmission states “no, he may not be a POI, but he sure tells an unbelievable story”. What a hypocrisy!

  18. Anonymous January 23, 2011 at 10:46 pm #

    Venice-It’s funny to continue to read that Mr Kronk tells “an unbelievable story” -a story which he will testify to in open court. Mr Baez never doubted his story and didn’t look at Mr Kronk as a murderer but someone who he could use to establish reasonable doubt. Ms Anthony never told anyone that she dumped her child in the swamp down the street. She told LE that her child was abducted not murdered. Even if there is enough circumstantial evidence to convict often times jurors will acquit if there is a hint of reasonable doubt. Blaming others is the hallmark of a high functioning psychopath.

    She doesn’t think Mr Baez went to law school to play “Let’s make a Deal” but she’d be surprised that it takes skill and compassion to sit your client down and tell them the potential peril they place themselves in
    when rejecting a deal that could save them from the death penalty.

    • Venice January 23, 2011 at 11:12 pm #

      Great post! Her logic is warped. He didn’t go to law school to play Let’s Make a Deal?? LOL. A deal is the first thing a seasoned, mature attorney would seek.

  19. Anonymous January 24, 2011 at 12:16 am #

    Venice -And if I recall he contacted Ms Drane-Burdict’s office via email or phone within 72 hours of Ms Anthony’s fist Bond hearing looking to “make a deal”. I guess that little tidbit of discovery went unnoticed by the super sleuths.

    I’m so tempted to write a parody blog about the pro-Casey misfits…..
    Suggested title: “JBMission IMPOSSIBLE”

  21. Venice January 24, 2011 at 10:47 am #

    Wow! Now the theory is Casey was impregnated from a cult member, and she was indebted to their every command. (according to sleuth Indygal). Zuben now has links posted to contact several sex-slaves, some out of Russia, with the name Z. The slander has shifted out of the U.S.

    I’m just frozen in shock and disbelief!

  22. Anonymous January 24, 2011 at 12:00 pm #

    Zoe-It’s funny how they just take a piece of the truth to make it appear the “whole truth and nothing but the truth”. They say certain things that are true but leave out the most important information. Often times the truth is relative.

    Example: Although it is true that Mr Kronk’s cell phone pinged 2.3 miles from Hopespring Drive on June 16, 2008 they leave out the most important information.

    from OCSO Supplemental Report Case written by John A. and Yuri M. #08-074777 *page 4-20389-par 9(May 28/2010)see endnotes for further clarification on date(s) 11/18/2009).

    “Received email from Tim Armstrong, Customer Service Division Manager for Orange County Public Works, showing Roy Kronk’s Water Meter route for June 16, 2008, and the meters he read that day. In short, Roy Kronk was working in a subdivision approximately ten (10) miles southwest of Hopespring Drive”.

    The OCSD investigated Mr Kronk. The defense decided to create reasonable doubt and in so doing his insignificant others tore him apart and said things that they were unwilling to repeat in open court. After Mr Kronk’s reputation took a beating Mr Baez informed the court that he would no longer be pursuing Mr Kronk. It was cruel but not illegal. I’m glad that poor man can move on. What a dreadful experience.
