We may see it as juvenile but it seems to be working with the press, and the judge is allowing it. Is Crump that clever or is he being coached?
Neither has to be true, provided the press is willing to carry your water.
As for the judge allowing it, she can no more prevent Crump from filing something that doesn't belong, than she can prevent the state from filing an unprofessional, insult-laden, unresponsive pleading. Her function is to process the material that is put in front of her, not to compose it.
Not high-fiving the judge, by the way, but it's not her fault that Crump used the criminal trial as a press release facility.
Even a coach needs a coach sometimes. The DeeDee strategy worked for him a year ago. Why not try it again.
I'm waiting for him to claim that the settlement agreement is still "a minor chile", and would like its privacy, and should have no questions asked of it.
I'm sure Matt Guttman and ABC will get every word of it on its self-destructing tape.
