Casey Anthony Judge Displays Powerful Listening Skills.
I'm not following the Casey Anthony trial and know absolutely nothing about the Orange County judge presiding over the case, the Honorable Belvin Perry Jr., though naturally lawyers who appear before him and are quoted by name don't have anything but nice things to say about him.
And it's a very high-profile case and tensions are running very high etc.
But still I'm just flabbergasted at this judge's inability to understand what defense counsel is complaining about here.
Defense lawyers feel free to weigh in, but the essential idea of burden of proof doesn't strike me as a difficult concept to grasp, whether you agree with defense counsel's request for a curative instruction or not.
