Well, the hearing was short, sweet, and quite pithy.
After asking to approach the bench to discuss a matter, Casey's attorney Jose Baez waived her right to a speedy trial and suggested it be moved back to March.
Judge Stan Strickland, who was originally scheduled to turn the case over to another judge, will remain on for the trial. He is moving to civil cases in a normal judicial rotation. He recommended that another pretrial conference be held before setting a trial date. He discussed the possibility of a change of venue in the future. The next conference will be January 15, at 9 AM.
Baez also brought up the "tip" situation and stated that he was working out the "non-conforming" goods issue with Orange County. If you recall, he was royally miffed at the November 25 hearing because he received all those psychic "sightings" of Caylee.
Beth Karas, who is covering the case in Orlando mentioned that Casey's brother Lee was in the courtroom.
Meanwhile, I foresee more months of "document dumps," Anthony family spin, and Jose Baez press conferences to correct all the "mis-truths" out in the public.
Correction: December 14
We just received word that Lee Anthony was not in the courtroom. The "Lee in the courtroom was Lee Dorough, Alejandro Ferrer's attorney.
