Second, right now, the police have the area around buoy marker 4 and possibly 5 roped off and no one is allowed to fish near or enter into the area for any reason. Also, Gloria Gomez was told that if a body was put in that area that it would wash up precisely where Laci's body washed up."

Maybe the weights and/or anchors.

If 20 chimpanzees typed randomly on typewriters for X number of years, odds are that they would type the name of the real killer...

The FBI DNA woman is on the stand; has been for quite some time.

This has to do with the hair, no doubt.

The Petersons and Rochas are allowed to stay in the courtroom -- and I believe Amy Rocha, too.

Per MSNBC.

Heard on Court TV that it is the Kelly hearing that is underway. First witness is FBI's Constance Fisher, an expert on DNA, who is explaining about mitochondrial DNA.

Also heard that Geragos cried foul this morning, saying he'd gotten some discovery late, and that therefore he might not be able to adequately cross-exam some witness of the state's in the Kelly (DNA) hearing. But then he supposedly said it would just be a small delay for him to get up to speed.

Much earlier, the Court TV people said that part of Geragos' objection to some of the dogs was that they were dogs for tracking SUSPECTS, but that they had been used in this case to track a VICTIM. ROFL!!

Miticondrial DNA comes from the mother; nuclear DNA, from both parents. Dr. on CNN says that miticondrial DNA has been accepted in court, but defense argues against...defeated. HA

I'm going to ping ya to where the proceedings9(around post#62) begin so if you want to read back on the thread at that point when you get home. If the thread is too long, let me know and I will give you a replay in one post as best I can!

Turns out the state will not be using its wiretap tapes at the prelim, so no need to go further into the Franks hearing issue at this time. This will cut down on how long we have to wait b/f they dispense with other motions and start the real prelim. State also has said they will not be using any of their GPS evidence for the prelim. So that issue needn't be talked about at this time, either.

BTW, on Court TV they said Geragos is seeking to have Allred barred from the courtroom. LOL.

So, yes, turn to Court TV if you don't mind seeing them go back to "the desert murder mystery" in between Peterson reports.

So far, have found the most coverage on Court TV, although Court is bouncing back and forth btw Peterson and an unrelated murder trial they are covering.

I'm anxious to hear what Nancy Grace (CTV)will say at 3:00 est. as well as Greta (Fox) who I believe is in the courtroom. MSNBC said they will give us an update right after the break.

Yeah, mitochondrial has apparently been used in several CA courts, including Westerfield, but the issue has not yet made its way into the books that recount appeals decisions, so Geragos is pretending that it is a "case of first impression" in CA. Weak, Mark.

I know that it's the job of the defense to question everything, but imo Geragos has clutched at every straw, and these straws are not substantial enough to keep peterson's chances afloat.

I rushed home to watch it, and now it's nowhere to be found.

Naturally as soon as I hit "Post" they switched to the other trial.

On MSNBC right now Dan Abrams is saying the discussion has centered around the admissability of the testimony/science regarding the hair found. Abrams says it is rather dry and even the families are whispering.

Abrams just reported you can feel the tension between the families, though. He's rehashing some of the earlier reports others have posted on.

LKL to have CNN legal team on tonight.

Oh, reading that immediately reminded me of that summer before 9/11. Remember? It was the summer of Chandra....and Barbara Olson was a fixture on LKL that whole summer commenting on the case.

I remember Barbara Olson so well........I have both her books and have recently reread the last one about the clintons' trashy exit. Oh, if only Barbara were alive today...there'd be another book on their "unbridled ambition", which continues ad infintum.

Court TV: this morning while in the courtroom, Jackie P.'s oxygen tank fell to the floor with a crash, momentarily stopping court proceedings.

(that's not funny... I'm not supposed to be laughing, am I?)

And the judge denied Geragos' request to bar Allred from court. But judge said to Allred, don't discuss with your client what has been said while client is not in courtroom.

And if Gloria were to mention any such thing to Amber, I'd like to know just how anyone would ever know? Gloria's conversations with Amber are confidential... and Gloria can't be compelled to say what they are...

But Amber doesn't need to know what's said when she's not in the courtroom. She's got enough to testify about anyway.

I can see Jackie dropping the tank deliberately, to draw attention to herself. Snott gets his "it's all about me" attitude from her....

Yes, some say it will last a week. At the moment, of course, they are only on their "Kelly" hearing about the admissibility of mitochondrial DNA evidence.
