Gupta Trial Synopsis Day 7
Michael Cardillo had stepped down off the stand and the jury was at lunch.
Brodsky claimed that Naftalis gave his defense table thumbs up during cross examination last week and then said under his breath "got him". Brodsky said this was or could be heard by the jury. Then Naftalis made some claim about an objection the prosecution made and then Brodsky handed some related papers up to the judge. Then the judge finally said I can read these papers or go to lunch.
The gallery chuckled, court was adjourned for lunch.
Also the jury asked the judge if they could see what we, the artists, were drawing. He was amused by this query and assured them that we were doing a good job, but unfortunately they were not allowed to see or read anything about the case, including our artwork. Ironically we have been requested not to draw their faces so I hope they are not disappointed there will be no recognizable images of the jury at this trial.
