We Now Wait For A Monday Letter, From The Convict’s Counsel…

A very able partner at the quite well-respected Manhattan firm of Davis Wright & Tremaine has written a solid three page letter (PDF) arguing conclusively for press access to the jurors’ names.

She cites the same three cases I mentioned in my earlier post — as the core of her argument. And she handily addresses the fear of reprisal argument, by citing the Court’s own earlier order on voir dire (a 17 page PDF) back to it.

Ordinarily, I’d say that would resolve it — in favor of press access. But as we have repeatedly seen, with this felon, virtually nothing is ordinary.

His lawyers have asked to have until Monday, to enter their views on the matter, since the AUSAs did not take a position at all. Jude Matsumoto has granted that request.

So we wait now — until Monday.

Namaste — and good evening, all
