You just can't make this shit up. I agree with donchais. It's official now, the Jensen trial is a certified three ring circus.
How in the world ritanita and Intrepid covered the proceedings yesterday I'll never know. From what I'm hearing it was like either watching a wrestling match or a train wreck. Even ritanita commented this morning that the blog coverage, "really captured the spirit and facts of the circus that took place yesterday." And the spectacle continues.
Dr. Rumack a defense witness on the stand two days ago, apparently lied as to how much he was paid for his testimony. We even had a repeat of sorts of the Spector trial. In arguments outside the presence of the jury, Dr. Rumack's attorney, Jeff Springer, was addressing the court via speaker phone. (Any of you remember the CTV images of the Nortel phone when defense attorney Riordan was addressing the court?) Judge Schroeder is so angry that Rumack lied on the witness stand that while speaking with Rumack's attorney, he looked like he was going to jump through the speaker phone and grab him by the throat. He's not happy.
