Objection Sustained: The Story of Jose Baez’s Bizarre Imaginarium

25 Jun

Although I have not had the time to post my regular series of articles chronicling the grammatical misadventures of defense attorney Jose Baez and his cast of crazed cronies, I have been watching the trial with interest.

At first only irritating as a result of his lack of legal knowledge, the courtroom efforts of Mr. Baez have been elevated to the level of excruciating to witness since the prosecution rested their case in chief.

Much like the regular character Norm on the sitcom Cheers or a WWE wrestler entering the ring, a catchphrase is heard when Mr. Baez takes to the podium.  “Objection Sustained” rings from the bench after many of the questions of the defense.

If preparation and forethought are the hallmarks of excellent attorneys, woe is the defense.  If Mr. Baez thought ahead or prepared for the witnesses being called by the defense, would he ever tell the court he is searching for the correct phrasing of his queries as he has done countless times?  If Mr. Mason has prepared for the motion to move for mistrial based on insufficient evidence, would he have needed to rely on the state’s submittal of case research with his weak assertion all cases supported his request?  If Ms. Sims had prepared, would she have repeatedly referred to numbered pictures the forensic technician witness stated were not in her report or taken by her?

Does Mr. Baez even understand how discovery works?  This week he argued by being given the entirety of evidence held by the state in the form of a copy of the data from the hard drive of the Anthony home computer, the state had pursued a strategy of overwhelming the defense with an abundance of evidence.  In other words, Mr. Baez, the same attorney who has complained repeatedly the state withheld evidence, is now claiming the state gave him too much evidence.

Ms. Burdick pointed out in open court the hard drive contains data which can be used to disprove much of the opening statement delivered by Mr. Baez.  She left it to the court and the onlookers to surmise Mr. Baez never bothered to analyze the hard drive to discover if there was anything to disprove his opening statement.  However, we should also infer he never searched the hard drive for exculpatory evidence.  Why not?  Because he did not need to search for what he knew was not there to be found.

Does Mr. Baez really believe he is winning points with the jury by ridiculing the accomplishments and careers of expert witnesses?  In the past week, Mr. Baez has insulted an expert witness by stating his scientific methods were open to contamination and lacked quality control.  He then went on to ridicule a personal friend of the witness.  Mr. Baez later asked an expert witness the number of “meaningless” jobs she performed for the FBI.

Beyond bad manners, the strategic wisdom of recalling state expert witnesses to give the additional time to explain their scientific analysis of the evidence is questionable.  Mr. Baez is so audacious he believes he can manipulate an expert in their own field of testimony even though some of the experts have been giving testimony longer than Mr. Baez has practiced law, attended law school, and stayed current on child support combined.

Why does Mr. Baez need to address the forensic evidence at all?  He has already admitted the death of the child and the presence of his client at the scene.  What does it matter if the body was in the trunk?  Is that not as plausible as not reporting the death for 31 days?  Does it change an accident to a murder if she put the body in the trunk?

I’ve heard a lot of praise for Mr. Baez on talking head shows and in the media.  Some say he is dismantling the prosecution’s case, usually the same ones who believe the prosecution’s case was weak.  I’ve been scoring this event since the first bell and I have yet to show a single point for the defense.

I’m two days behind on court proceedings, so it’s back to the web reruns for me.

    In my opinion, you are on the right track to its logical end, so stay the course Bull. When he asked the FBI agent how many other meaningless jobs does she do, I was looking to hear a bull’s roar from Judge Perry.I’m guessing he was too shocked to reply just as she was for a second. She then informed him that she didn’t feel any of the jobs she did were meaningless. By the time she reached the outer hall of the 23rd. floor after she was released, I would have expected to see fire coming out of her nostrils. If Baez would have been within an arm’s distance, there wouldn’t have been enough of him left to toss into the woods.

    Just when I think he can’t go any lower, he does. I am going to predict that by the time this trial is over (soon I hope) that he will face so many lawsuits as Judge Perry tried to warn him long ago, a thorough investigation by the Florida Bar Assn., and possibly one or two criminal charges thrown in, he nor only will never work as a lawyer again, but his hopes to be the Latin Geraldo will be dashed to the ground since no reputable tv station will want him within 1,000 feet of their offices, sound and lighting depts and their cameras. He is fast approaching the pariah of not only the legal community, but of decent people everywhere in the name of making this a better place to live, love and work. In other words, he is toast—burnt toast.

    Hey Mr. Stopper! Excellent Post!!! We have missed you terribly.

    I completely agree with you about Mr. Baez. I especially likes it when he yells an tries to be dramatic like Perry Mason or something, but he falls short. I also loved it yesterday when he was so uncomfortable with the Judge’s ruling that he was chewing on a stack of papers. 😆 I could go on and on, but the guy is a joke!

    As far as Baez’ legal skills, i was impressed with his re-direct with Lee over why he was so emotional and how hard this has been on him. I thought it was going to turn into an Oprah moment as Baez brought out the soft side of Lee.

    During the same hour, Lee stayed calm and polite as Ashton’s voice pushed harder questioning his belligerence. Lee feigned direct answers. As Ashton humphed away, Lee looked over with briefly raised eyebrows, quite pleased.

    well havent been to this sight in awhile. sad to see your not posting on the trial dayly with so much going on each day. cindy actually had me feeling sorry for her until she testified for dufense. as for lee, still not sure how to take his testimony. he was clearly upset. yet after the lunch break he seemed to have changed. been on other blogs everyone seems to think a mistrial is coming after saturdays ubrupt end to the trial. whats your thoughts? whats your thoughts on this jury nd how you think they are thinking and feeling at this point after all the delays and ping-ponging in and out of the court room? whats your take on the judge and how he seems to be handling this circus and his facial language and such? miss your input on thee issues. hope to see more post soon

    Cant tolerate listening or watching him anymore. The
    word among many that describes him has 5 letters and
    starts with a p.

  12. David July 1, 2011 at 10:08 am #

    The “meaningless” question was a rebuttal to the prosecutor who said a test was “meaningless” Baez was just asking the witness if she felt any of her work was meaningless, like the prosecutor was suggesting. You have it out of context.

    Hubris J. Baez exercises the forethought of Wile E. Coyote, in other words he thinks ahead well enough to get his leg snared in a trap, but OVER and over and over again?
    *
    Did I hear Jose Baez copycatting of Jeff Ashton’s objections over this past week, twice Baez was shot down by Judge Perry while objecting to the prosecution during Rebuttal using legal concepts that were improperly predicated..
    *
    I will miss Jose’s legal faux pas they are cartoon-ish but most entertaining. Perhaps over time the faux pas AND Jose Baez will become interchangeable terms amongst the general populace.

    seems it was OUR “imaginarium”, we imagined they would seat a jury that would use common sense…

    Had any ONE of those jury members had a kidnapped child, murdered in this fashion and the forensics and body left to rot til there was nothing left they would convict the killer on the duct taped face alone.
    i am convinced that evil is truly in control of this earth

Maybe the tree being struck by lightning is just the beginning of karma, hopefully sleazy and her equally sleazy lawyer is next followed by those godawful grandparents. the family that slays together stays together. i don’t buy their act nor the “death threats” they are getting, probably more LIES LIES LIES kinda like sindy getting “hacked”

    • sandra July 12, 2011 at 1:47 am #

      still in SHOCK over this desicion. I for one had the worst sleep of my life besides poor caylee. with the poles of people 90% feel she ws guilty of at the very least the child abuse issue. im stund its almost beyond words. how can 12 people only take really basicly less thn a day to come up with this verdict when it was about a childs life! unbeilevable! i have not come across ANYONE yet that feels she should be walking free.shock and disgust is all i hear. although i dont condone the people making death threats to any juror or thee anthonys, i am totaly baffled by this desision. and in total and complete dismay for caylees memory. i pray that each and every one of these jurors sign the potition for the caylee law to help stop,prevent or give these unfeeling uncaring individuals what they truly desrerve, death or jail for life.R.I.P. caylee you are not forgotten by the people that never even new you. god bless you bull for all your hard work in posting and trying your best to give her a voice through the public.

  17. MamaBear July 12, 2011 at 9:37 pm #

    Did the defense team tell the jury George Anthony killed Caylee? So why is the jury saying that now, oh I know, Baez must have “cut the cheese” again, or was it the woman he calls the “slut” “cut the cheese”?

    Hi Bull Stopper!

    When can we look forward to your next post? I am anxious to get your opinion on the trial verdict.

  19. jb1975 July 29, 2011 at 3:15 pm #

    Dear Bullstopper,

    Thank you for your excellent posts. Although I disagree with your assessment of the case — I think Caylee died of accidental drowning, just as the defense claims — I look forward to reading your post for July. If you have a minute, perhaps you could check out the extended piece I’ve written on the trial, in which I make a case for accidental drowning against premeditated murder. In the very least, I think you will find it thought-provoking.

    Best,
    JB

    .
    This story from the Examiner explains how Felon CMA got the details for the major lie to pass on to Bozo to use as the major lie in his opening statement, that the nonthinking, Law Enforcement-resentful, idjit jury of 12 from Pinellas Co. believed verbatim, hook line & sinker. Aside from the other 2 different stories the Felon CMA concocted, 1 each, for the 2 psychs who “examined” her & found her “competent” to stand trial. All the jury needed was 1 “thinking” person. Ugh.
