While I can’t tell you what is going on at trial until it is over, I can tell you about format and formalities.
The reason I can’t tell you what I’ve blogged is because the witnesses have been sequestered, although I don’t know why because THERE WAS NOTHING GOING ON TODAY THAT HAS NOT ALREADY BEEN HASHED OUT OVER AND OVER ON THIS BLOG.
What’s interesting, is typically all the witnesses are warned not to talk about the case, and that they have been sequestered. That did not happen.
I got kicked out about 2:30 pm, well, because you know me. But primarily it was due to snickering from the peanut gallery (the audience) and neither the hearing panel nor atty Black could figure it out, so I guess we were all out of order, and I got kicked out because I might be a witness which is crazy because no one told me I was on any witness list. Ken already confirmed I am not on his, LB never told me I am on hers. I have not received a subpoena, and it’s too late for her to subpoena me (7 days advance notice is standard), so I have no idea what she is thinking.
It gets even worse. If I stick around, she can call me, because, well, I’m there. BUT if she kicks me out, then to get me back she needs a subpoena. Hmm,sometimes life is hard and just not fair.
Anyway, I faxed her about a number of issues in the case, which I won’t relate right now, because I don’t want to be accused of influencing the witnesses or a tribunal or anything, but I gotta tell you, this is about the worst put together case I’ve ever seen. It’s not organized. Exhibits were not agreed to in advance, which could have been easily done.
It sure ain’t federal court.
I wish I could go tomorrow, but so far, I’ve been banned. And I blame Adam Stern, as usual. He always seems to figure out a way to throw me out of the court or get my laptop taken away or whatever.
I’ll let you know what I hear tomorrow. All the peanut gallery is there, all the major blogs, from Probate Sharks to NASGA, but no one types like I do. Such a shame.
