Gupta Trial Synopsis Day 7

The spat btwn Naftalis and Brodsky that the judge characterized as "polite way of name calling" and playing a"game of gotcha" shows nerves are fraying outside view of the jury.
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.

    1. If you have a blog, you can register it with the search engines. I did this a long while ago
      so don't have a grea recollection how I did that, but if you Google search engine blog register, or something like those terms, instructions should come up.
      The most important search is Google, then Yahoo.
      Hope this helps and so glad you like the blog!
