In case you were wondering….

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2010

More than 18 months after he was fired, medical examiner Steven Hayne is still testifying in Mississippi’s courtrooms.

More on Hayne here.

    Why wouldn’t he be? The establishment hasn’t exactly demonstrated concern or care about the quality of the witnesses for the prosecution.

    What does mildly surprise me is that we haven’t seen a demand for him to examine bodies in more states. (After being given a good idea of what the prosecution hopes he will find, of course.)

    Welcome to the Bader Haynes road show!

    Seems Baders pedestal is also gathering some nicks as well.


    Seems the sister has a problem, how about his hired legal eagle?

    I’ve gotten 799 signatures on my (Hayne/West) petition and need at least 200 more!

    Come on people help me by passing this link around to EVERYONE you can!

    With 1000 signatures, this petition will be filed along with other new evidence in many people’s appeals.

    Time is of the essence!

    Nothing CHANGES if WE don’t CHANGE it!

    Thank you!

    Actually it’s not surprising. Considering how long cases can drag out. This is a 2007 which is longer than the 18 months that he has been out. Be interesting to see if the defense starts in on Hayes credibility all things considered.

    Wouldn’t any defense attorney be able to rip his credibility to shreds?

    The first case seems pretty harmless. He testified that the wounds were consistent with a stab wound when the defendant admitted stabbing the victim. The issue in that case seems to be intent, not what happened.

    In the second case, he hasn’t actually testified yet. He only performed the testimony. It’s good to see that the defense is already prepared to dispute the autopsy if necessary.

    That said, eternal vigilance is the price of freedom.

    Off-topic, John Yoo is being sponsored to speak at my law school on Thursday by the Federalist Society. Unfortunately, I’m going to be out of town so I can’t protest. It’s quite aggravating.

    John “Testicle Crusher” Yoo?

    I was so disappointed when Jon Stewart interviewed that scumbag and didn’t at least refer to that. It was like watching a Larry King interview.
