CARDONA CLOSINGS II

Update: MM is at closings...

This is MM blogging from closings through Rumpole who is posting...follow me on Twitter @millennialme786

Yermish comes out for the defense....slower than a snail. He apologizes for his voice...he mentions he doesn't have three hours of voice...he introduces a PD appellate lawyer at the table...he mentions the Magna Carta (the Magna Carta???) and then tells the jury they have listened to the evidence and have every right to be angry at Ana Cardona...

First...I am disappointed in the defense. They should have come out firing and they did not. Second, it's a snooze fest closing and I'm not the only one saying it.

Third...about ten minutes into hemming and hawing Yermish finally gets to the defense of his client that Cardona was a 19 year old uneducated single mother. These are the points he should have opened with (as per my trial ad profs).

Rump,

I really cannot take jury trial critiques from MM, who hasn't tried a thing.

It would be like reading you critique 18th century french ballroom dancing.
