Do Any of the Defense Attorneys for Casey Anthony Understand the Purpose of the Various Hearings of a Capital Case or When and Why to File a Motion?

27 Mar

On March 23, 2011, a Frye hearing dealing with a single hair which exhibited a dark band consistent with decomposition and found in the trunk of the Pontiac Sunbird driven and abandoned by the defendant was held to determine the general acceptance of the findings in the scientific community.  Defense attorney Dorothy Sims asked a series during cross-examination which significantly veered away from the purpose of the hearing.  An exchange between Ms. Sims and the court may be seen and heard at the following link:

http://www.youtube.com/user/S0meRand0mName#p/c/9E897E4FDA84A473/2/-b6JMPNVnFY

Dorothy Sims: “Alright.  Your Honor, if I may just briefly respond that this motion isn’t just a Frye hearing, there are other areas that we’re seeking to have this testimony excluded which includes… ”

After another sustained prosecution objection in a series of objections to irrelevant questions by the defense, Ms. Sims attempts to persuade the court the purpose of the Frye hearing is also to provide the defense an opportunity to exclude testimony from this witness from “other areas” which are not part of a Frye hearing.

“This motion isn’t just a Frye hearing” – Ms. Sims states “this motion”, a defense motion and one which she is close to, one which she is comfortable with as shown by the use of “this”, is not “just a Frye hearing”.  This is a true statement.  A “motion” is not a “hearing”, Frye or otherwise.  A “motion” is a “motion”.  A “motion” is a written pleading by either side in a case.  A “hearing” is a structured event which allows both sides to verbally plea their side of the issue to the court and which may or may not include relevant witness testimony.

Within her statement, Ms. Sims reveals two items with which she is not comfortable and verbally distances herself from with the use of the distancing word “that”.  She distances herself from the defense motion not being “just a Frye hearing”.  Although, as discussed, a motion is not a hearing and the statement is true, the distancing by Ms. Sims indicates she is aware she is trying to move beyond the scope of a Frye hearing as the underlying assumption the hearing should conform to the motion is flawed.  Ms. Sims is also disturbed by the fact “this testimony” will be used in “other areas” during trial.

Judge Perry: “Then you need to file another motion and we’ll hear it, but the purpose of these hearings which I set many, many months ago was to deal with a Frye hearing.  And I don’t know how many times I can say that.  These are Frye hearings.”

The judge again offers legal advice to the defense, just as he has on many occasions in the past.  It is apparent from the fact the court must instruct the defense when they need to file a motion, the defense is not aware of this on their own.  A lack of understanding about routine court matters such as when and why to file a motion demonstrates a frightening lack of legal knowledge on the part of the defense.

It is also apparent from the string of sustained objections and the court’s statement, “I don’t know how many times I can say that”, the defense does not understand the purpose or scope of a Frye hearing.  Such a lack of understanding significantly reduces their chances of a successful bid to suppress the findings of the expert in regards to hair banding indicating the presence of a dead body in the trunk of the car routinely driven by only the defendant during the time frame Caylee Anthony was missing, but unreported as missing to authorities.

We have learned understanding the purpose and need for motions, as well as the purpose and scope of various types of hearings, are not the particular strength of any member of the current defense team for Casey Anthony.  Since motions and hearings are extremely significant parts of the overall trial procedure, we cannot be sure exactly why any defendant would choose to use such a team as such a lack of understanding about basic court matters will most likely result in failure to defend the client from the charges.

We have learned we as spectators of the court proceedings are learning exactly as much about the law and legal procedures and at exactly the same speed as the defense team.

We have learned any average blogger may be able to defend Casey Anthony at least as successfully, if not more so, than the defense team led by Jose Baez simply by listening to the instructions and advice offered by the court.

    Yes…Anne Finnell is the only one. Baez should have kept Terence Lenamon on; but, of course, he wasn’t needed because Casey was “innocent”.

    • kathdejour March 28, 2011 at 12:02 pm #

      I agree wholeheartedly Venice. It was a really bad move among many bad moves that Jose made by getting rid of Terry Lenamon. He was one of the few knowledgeable lawyers on this Defense team. And that includes Cheney Mason who I had heard was a good local death penalty lawyer. He seems to be just as uninformed as the rest of them on court proceedings.

      • bullstopper March 28, 2011 at 7:30 pm #

        Jose had to get rid of Lenamon. The man wanted to do the right thing and Jose is violently opposed to being associated with that type of thinking.

    LKB is probably rolling her eyes at this fiasco and thanking her lucky stars for getting out when she did.
    who needs LKB? the defense

    • Venice March 27, 2011 at 12:50 pm #

      I hate that woman. Ya know, Lana Clarkson was a friend of mine. She worked at the House of Blues in Hollywood, CA. and I used to work at the Starwood and the Roxy. Sitting at her trial listening to LKB describe how she stuck a gun in her mouth was so disturbing and sick, that I had to run out and vomit.

      • bullstopper March 27, 2011 at 12:58 pm #

        I am not a fan of LKB, either, but I think she is a superior attorney to Sims.

    • bullstopper March 27, 2011 at 12:57 pm #

      I think Sims has proven in one short court appearance she is not the equal of LKB.

        The pic at the top of the article?

        It shows up on my end and I have already seen at least one comment about it, so I am not sure what the problem could be.

        Depending on the browser you are using and the settings, it could be filtering the pic out. If this is the case, usually there is a little symbol in a blank box instead of the pic and if you click the symbol, the pic shows up.

        Otherwise, I have no idea.

    Excellent article as always Bull. Many thanks for your insights into this case.
    ” A lack of understanding about routine court matters such as when and why to file a motion demonstrates a frightening lack of legal knowledge on the part of the defense.”

    I can’t help but think that even if the defense does have the knowledge they will take what they want out of context and twist it like Gumby to suit their “cause” that’s just MO.

    That said can somebody help me, PLEASE? this has been driving me crazed the last few days…

    Take a look at the last part of this video. @ 28:20 Michelle medina ( who HAD been sitting close to the scamthony’s earlier and prior to HO-Say’s snarkiness to Linda which (purposefully?) created this distraction) pulls what appears to be a folded letter out of the yellow legal pad and slides it towards skanky (i think she is assisting in the “unmonitered mail system” at the OCCH…) case even looks a little animated like she’s expecting it… tell me what you think

        It is something specifically about Internet Explorer and I can’t seem to make it work there.

        Firefox shows the picture great. Personally, I never use anything but Firefox if I can help it. If you pay bills online, you pretty much have to use IE for that, but for everything else, especially blogs, I think Firefox is far superior and safer in terms of viruses and tracking.

    Great article as always, Bull. I thought Sims and Mason were supposes to be above all this playground lawyering. I don’t know if Baez has dragged them down or just helped expose them for what they were all along.

    • bullstopper March 28, 2011 at 7:33 pm #

      After the ridiculous and pathetic performance by Sims in her direct examination of the hair expert, I have lost any respect she may have been able to dredge up by playing the “I have my own law firm just like Jose” card.

      The only reason I ever had any respect for Mason was because Bill Schaeffer kept saying he was a force to be reckoned with and would be a game changer. As far as I can tell, he may have changed to game from hide-n-seek to candyland, but I can’t take him seriously anymore.

  12. kathdejour March 28, 2011 at 12:48 pm #

    Every day in every way…this case and these courtroom dramatics get weirder and weirder. I am not a long watcher of trials but I’ve seen my share including OJ’s 1 & 2, Spector 1 & 2 and Daryn Mack 1. (sp) And as weird as those first two especially were, this one takes the cake and we aren’t even at Trial yet. I guess if they were normal people, they wouldn’t be lawyers dealing in murder or clients who are up for murder. They would be in their own lives in their own homes and jobs and not on trial. But hey, this is like watching a wreck at the stock car races. You don’t want to look, but you can’t help yourself.

    I think that Judge Perry is in the process of hosing them down and making them get back in their respective cages. And all the while, giving them free instruction on how the court system should work. Cheney Mason has me puzzled however. He should know how it goes and how it doesn’t. Unless he is just letting Baez forge blindly ahead to get him off the case. That one will bear watching.

        Another great article Bull, thank you. They are a frightening group of uninformed lawyers. It also is interesting that it, once again, shows that when the lead atty. is an ignorant fool he is unable to keep his co counsel on track. It’s the blind leading the blind.

        Venice~ just wanted to tell you that the slanderous attack the victim tactic that they used in the Spector trial was hideous. I hated them for that and still do. That was despicable beyond words.

      • bullstopper March 28, 2011 at 7:28 pm #

        You can’t keep your co-counsel on track when you don’t even know where the raceway is located.

    “A lack of understanding about routine court matters such as when and why to file a motion demonstrates a frightening lack of legal knowledge on the part of the defense.”

    It is all about the mistrial. They are not that crazy, slow and lazy maybe. These things add up to be ineffective representation of council.

    • bullstopper March 28, 2011 at 7:25 pm #

      I must disagree.

      I don’t think these losers can add, subtract, multiply, or divide.

      They don’t seem too good at reading or verbal comprehension either.

      And, really, what would any of them have to gain by ineffective counsel? They don’t care if KC lives or dies.

  16. bullstopper March 28, 2011 at 7:50 pm #

    If you want to place a bet in Vegas as to the outcome of this trial, here are some insights to help you make the right wager based on the recent hearings.

    Notice how agitated Jose is. He is downright jumpy. He has a hard time sitting still. He tells the dog handler to take his time reviewing the logs, then paces and paces and starts asking other questions. He can’t pay attention to his co-counsels’ suggestions. He is nervous. He starts every question with either “and” or “now then”. He is like a kid about to ride their first roller coaster, terrified and thinking about jumping out of line.

    Ashton is passionate and keeps interrupting the attorneys, but it is not from nervousness. He is paying keen attention to everything happening in the courtroom. But it would be helpful for the prosecution if he chilled out a little and stopped irritating the judge.

    LDB is calm, cool, and collected. This is just another day at the office for her and she knows she is prepared and ready to handle her job. She is confident in her skills and her abilities. She is methodical and doesn’t miss anything.

    Sims is a disaster. She is prepared, but not for the hearing in question, for some other hearing with another focus. She is easily flustered, although not as easily as “I don’t know a hostile witness from a hole in the ground” Jose. Apparently, she is dumb, too. So dumb, even though Jose screwed her with the photos during the depo of the plant expert, she still hasn’t caught on he is not supplying her with everything he has… like the trial testimony of the defense expert Ashton submitted to uphold the scientific community’s acceptance of hair banding. How hard is it to say, “Jose, did you give me everything this time? Cause if you didn’t, I swear I am going to tell the judge what a piece of crap you are as I walk out of the courtroom and leave you to fail on your own.”

    • zoe March 28, 2011 at 8:28 pm #

      Terrific analysis and commentary as usual, Mr. Bull!
      Thanks.

      A quick thought on the three female defense lawyers on the team. I believe both Dorothy Clay Sims and Ann Finnel were “sold” a patently false bill of goods by JoseBgood prior to their involvement. I recall a hearing a while ago in which Finnel kept saying to Judge Perry “Well…I was LED to believe xyz..”. It would not surprise me in the LEAST if a big part of Jose’s nasty, unethical bag of tricks has meant MISLEADING and LYING to other lawyers who have decent reputations (unlike him)!! I think Sims got herself bamboozled by this shyster used-car polyester wanna-be ….and it kinda pisses me off that Baez thinks he csan do whatever the hell he wants when it comes to his client and the law. I know that Finnel and Sims have minds of their own, but I can’t shake the feeling that Jose (and Mason) must have truly deceived him about the realities surrounding this case. I must admit it was painful to watch Dorothy Sims (matching her jacket color to her “hair binder”)…..positively cringe-worthy because she is not a giant pompous asshat like Jose. Geez…what is it with the sheer SLIME of this short and stubby little man??? Sorry for the long rant. The other female attny I feel bad for is Michelle Medina. I think she is obviously more comfortable hanging with her boss Baez….but if she wants any semblance of a solid, respectable law career, I say “Ruuuunnn Michelle! Ruuun!”

      • bullstopper March 28, 2011 at 9:36 pm #

        I would agree with most of what you have said.

        Finnel had impressed me. At first, I thought she was unprepared, but it was obvious during her first court appearance Jose sabotaged her, if not on purpose, then through his own complete lack of preparation for anything. Although she was still not completely up to speed during her second appearance, her performance improved dramatically. Her requests are well in line with the norm for this type of case and the judge agrees. Finnel knows what she is doing. At this point, she is the best lawyer on the team and she is KC’s best hope for escaping the death penalty. This is why I don’t write about Finnel. She is competent and doing a fine job. She is not seeking fame and everything she has ever said which has been broadcast in this case has been in the courtroom and about defending her client. She deserves some serious applause for sticking this out even after being screwed by Jose time and again.

        Sims, on the other hand, is a fame seeker. The very first thing she did on this case was get her face on TV during the defense presser announcing her joining the team. The two performances we have been privy to so far have been disastrous. For an expert in forensic defense, she doesn’t know a Frye hearing from a french fry. Like Jose, she talks up her experience, but when the tire hits the pavement, she can’t make it to the finish line. The only reason she appears even slightly competent is Baez and Mason.

        Medina is also off my radar. We have all been where Medina is, making an idiot boss look good. It’s not her fault she can’t keep up with his stupidity. I don’t knock working people out making a living to support their family and doing so by putting forth their best efforts. She is prepared when it is time for her to speak. She is on her way up and her best bet would be to cut ties with Jose, but I can’t fault anyone for not giving up a steady paycheck in this economy. I only wish she wasn’t being associated in the public with this moron.

        This is not what Jose and Mason are doing. As neither are being paid at this point, it’s not about a steady paycheck, it’s about steady media coverage supplied by the death of a small child and the impending death of a young woman. I have no sympathy for KC and she deserves what she is going to get, but Caylee loved her mother and for her sake, KC should have a decent defense. No matter what I think about KC or what she did, I always try to remember Caylee would probably forgive her mother, just as I believe Able would have forgiven Cain. The selflessness and purity of their forgiveness is so beautiful it outshines all the evil done by their loved ones, but Jose and Mason have destroyed any possibility of the jury ever seeing it because of the filthy shroud of deceit and self-gain these two have cast over the trial.

        I do believe Judge Perry can see it and I think it is what he sees in George and Cindy. They know what KC did, but they seem to have forgiven her which I would like to think is because of the love they have for her. Judge Perry has children and grandchildren and I think his heart breaks when he puts himself in the place of George and Cindy.

    Bullstopper, in your opinion is this case shaping up to be a last minute plea? Missing deadlines repeatedly, asking for a rehearing, and, as you mentioned, baez is acting desperate and very twitchy . . . could it all be setting the stage for a deal? The State may agree simply for financial reasons. On the other hand would baez’s severely over-inflated ego or casey’s narcissism ever allow them to deal? I’ll feel we’ve been robbed if they do make a deal but at the same time my heart goes out to the taxpayers of Florida and I hate casey even more because of the small fortune she will end up costing them. What a real shame that the State couldn’t get their hands on all that money baez used to his furnish his closets with custom-made suits and silly pocket squares.

    • bullstopper March 28, 2011 at 9:51 pm #

      I don’t think there will be a plea. Baez is unable to see his own incompetence. I can’t be the only one telling him about his atrocious grammar and spelling errors, but he just keeps on making them. Just like when LDB told him “hostile”, not adverse and he just had to say “adverse slash hostile” because he is stupid slash arrogant.

      Just like when he decided to tell Judge Perry for the “court’s edification” he was going to file a motion. You don’t announce you will file a motion, you do it and you do it prior to the Frye hearing to which it applies. You don’t ask moronic questions which fly in the face of all court rules, then announce you will file a motion because the court wouldn’t allow you to flaunt the system.

      On an aside, even though his suits have significantly improved since the goodwill early days of Nancy Grace appearances and shining local TV interviews, his clothes are still very cheap. Look at the back of his jacket. Notice it doesn’t actually fit him. The shoulders are so stretched, he might rip through one at trial. He could have put on weight, but I think he doesn’t know the size he wears or had a lousy salesman… or one with a wicked sense of humor. Also notice the split in the bottom of the coat. I believe all of his are split in the middle. Most truly expensive suits have two splits. However, it can be personal taste, but the usual advice is, the bigger the butt, the more splits you need. In other words, fat guys should go with two vents (that’s what they call the splits), skinny guys can get away with one or none. Also notice, his hanky never ever matches his tie. Even worse, he often wears clashing patterns in these two items.

      It really doesn’t matter what he wears or looks like, but it’s obviously important to him, so I find it amusing he is so bad at dressing himself.

    “….but if she wants any semblance of a solid, respectable law career, I say “Ruuuunnn Michelle! Ruuun!”

    She’s already as shady (IMO) as the rest of the scheme team. look at this vid I can’t help but feel Jose intentionally was snarky create a distraction so that michelle (who HAD been sitting next to the anthony’s)
    can help them utilize the “unmonitored mail system” at the OCCH…

    Take a look at the last part of this video. @ 28:20 http://www.wftv.com/video/27296780/index.html
    The paper michelle gets out of the tablet and slides towards casey is hole punched NOT from a pad at the table.
    doing it right under everyones noses. I’m sure george knows he’s taking the fall that is their next duhfense move, was it in the letter passed to casey?

      • 38special March 28, 2011 at 10:01 pm #

        I so agree with you about the nonchalant note passing but they’re beyond functioning within the bounds. Rules don’t apply to them and it doesn’t matter who gets told, they would just do it a different way.
        They have no respect for the court or the Judge so the only thing that would come of it is them whining about “people” trying to read their papers.

        I wish HHJP would make them move to the desk he suggested before. A straight on view of the defense hulabaloo would be highly entertaining.

      This is a good point, too.

  19. damagdpets March 29, 2011 at 5:07 pm #

    I could see why the defense would try and raise doubt with George. He was one of two that claimed to see Caylee last. The nagging problem for me is how they would dress him up to claim he was Zanny at Sawgrass or Zanny at Blanchard Park. The defense is not going to get away from those renditions as given by KC to the rest of her family. I also find it hard for George to play the martyr when he could have done it over 2 years ago. Last, how does the defense qualify what the doctors are going to say without putting KC on the stand? How do we proof their scientific work without corroboration?

  20. Venice March 29, 2011 at 5:24 pm #

    There is NO WAY to ignore the 31 days and Zanny the Nanny.

    • damagdpets March 29, 2011 at 5:34 pm #

      Why did I know you would say that? Try as they may, the defense can’t get around the initial statements of KC. At this point know one knows if she lied about any and everything but we all have pretty good indications. I would love to see what the two doctors have to say but unfortunately they will be sealed and we will have to wait until trial.

        p.s. you’re screen name confuses me 😉

    Venice, the screen name confuses many that’s why I use it. I played in bands for 25 years and it was one of the names we went by, a long time ago in a galaxy far far away! It has been the topic of many a conversation…..one day I might even explain it!

      My friends have a band named Lambotomy out of Jackson, Mississippi. Now, that’s a strange name.

    Bull, great article. The sad thing is that many bloggers could represent Casey better then the clown team she has now, but she needs the dp and deserves what she has! 😉

      Hi Humble!

      Let’s face it. Many first graders could represent KC better than Jose and they could create better colored charts, too.

      She deserves what she gets, but that doesn’t justify Jose pretending he is qualified to represent her or his quest for fame through her eventual death and the slaying of a small innocent child.

      OMG….Judge Perry was just called egotistical and insecure @ themission. That just makes my skin crawl! That blog is tied to something.

      Due to some massive changes in my personal life, I am no longer able to post as often as I like, or even keep up to date on the day to day happenings in the case. It really bugs me this happened just before the trial starts, but what is, is.

      I hope to post articles each day on the weekends, but it is almost impossible for me to write articles during the week for the foreseeable future.

      I thank all my loyal readers for sticking with me through this time and I promise when I post articles, I will continue to try to bring forth issues for which I find no other coverage.

      In the meantime, try taking a close listen to the very beginning of the dog handler direct examination by Jose, who asks some weird question about the officer being a good handler, to which the officer replies he is, and Jose says something very close to “well, we will see that today” (not the exact words, but the gist). Basically, Jose admits his belief the officer is a good officer and dog handler and tells us he will demonstrate the officer is a good handler through his inept questioning, which he then does.

      Happy close listening!

    Hello Bull and everybody..I don’t post very often-but find myself having to comment on The Dog Handler incident..To me it appeared that Baez was challenging the man and was set out to bring him ‘down a notch or two’..Soon as Baez asked him if he was a good dog handler, i thought oh oh here comes trouble..It was very arrogant on Baez part….[whatsnew?] Bull thank you for explaining your situation, i am one of many always looking for new info or different opinions..I will rest easier now knowing your situation and i’m sure everybody will pitch in and ‘carry you’ for however long..Hoping your circumstances improve..Sincerely mama p

    You all know Casey wants to give all of us the bird in the camera. She is ONE COLD MAMA!

    JB is nothing but a juvenile playing a game,He brown noses when he has too otherwise it’s a game to him! This video shows his actions are not appropriate and just how serious he takes the case! It is so obvious to watch him and kc from the mark 2:49! Watch caseys hands direct him first to the left,then to the right…and he blocks the cam while she thinks she’s getting away with giving the court the finger! While they laugh! It is soooooooooo Obvious! JB this is Caylee’s justice and not a dang playground for you and your snickers and games with the mother of a child whose dead! You are the lowest form of life there possibly can ever be……jmo! http://www.youtube.com/user/S0meRand0mName#p/u/17/xTyyQCfo1bg

    I have really enjoyed your posts in this thread Bullstopper. You hit the nail on the head in all points. I will add my 2 cents…I believe that Jose’s ride on troubled waters will only increase when this trial is over and he loses the case. I think that Judge Perry was trying to give him a head’s up to shut his big mouth because the more he talked the more he played into the hands of some lawyers in the public who were sending out vibes that he would be sued when the trial has ended. Of course Baez ignored the Judge.

    I think that many people will find themselves in a bad position and facing jail time when all is said and done. And a more deserving crowd there has never been. 🙂
