“He also said he changed his opinion about the effect of THC from marijuana in Martin’s body. “
Well, there’s an avenue for investigation before the Jury.”
The jury was not present when the idiot made that statement. Therefore, it cannot be brought up during the defense’s case.
(I've long known that the Legal system is quite a distance from a Justice System.)
Not quite right. The ruling was that the defense could not ask that witness about it at that time. It might yet come up but I am not sure if the “door” has been “opened” already, or can be opened in the process of the defense case.
I don’t think George’s statement “he might be high or something” is enough.
The defense will call their own medical expert — the one who literally wrote the book that “I know nothing” Bao consulted for his own testimony today. His interpretation of the M.E.’s report, which is in evidence, might be the stuff.
