    Thaniks for posting, I couldn’t get it to stream when you first posted it a while back.

    the judge appeared very balanced. Cory’s counsel did a good job.

    The prosecution argued that the cops kicking in the door was not sufficient force to justify cory’s shooting in self-defense.

    the state’s defense of Dr. Hayne’s bullshit sounded almost condescending toward the defense.

    the judge kicked her ass regarding the change of venue- ‘…how is that a fair trial for Mr. Maye…?’

    Thanks for keeping this in front of us.

    Any indication when the court will issue their ruling?

    Good stuff. Corey’s lawyers did a greta job and reflected a real mastery of the cases and issues. The state’s lawyer also seemed to know her stuff and stick to her arguments.

    Her style was somewhat poor and grating though. She used the words “clearly” and “baseless” and the like far too foten, and I was always told that lawyers should refrain from those types of words when speaking to judges because legal cases and concepts are always complex. She also dodged a few questions when the weaknesses in her case was disputed, like when she raised that lack of police announcing does not exclude evidence and the judge shot back that that’s a totally different issue.

    Obviously I score this as a win for Maye, but I do think you can tell which side has the better case by how narrowly their opponent must make their arguments, and how many strange distinctions or twisted hypotheticals they must rely on. The venue issue seems like a clear winner for Corey, as marked by the state’s almost non-response.

    There’s no way of predicting when they’ll hand down a ruling. Based on other cases, they seem to take an average of 3-5 months post-argument. They have specific hand-down days (usually Tuesday afternoons). The next one is July 21, at 1:30 CDT, but I will be very surprised if they issue a ruling that quickly.

    One a scaele of one to ten:

    Pafford and Vernia: 11

    Holland: -0

    She rambled to much…thank God and seemed to be ill-prepared…thank God again.

    The judges seemed open and leaned more towards Maye…thank God again.

    Can’t wait to hear the decision!

    By the way Holland, if ANYONE kicks my damned door down in the middle of the day OR night…my revolver will also do a ‘meet and greet’ and so would yours doofus!

    Yes Hayne LIED like he has for years…that is why the state FIRED him, you moron!

    I digress again. Sorry, I am stressing right now.
