The defense rested today with the testimony of Dr. Loftus. In my opinion, they ended with a whimper and not a bang. At the end of the day, outside the presence of the jury, Phil Spector waived his right to testify.
I will have an update on today's proceedings much later tonight. Be forewarned; I did not take that many notes today. Listening to the expert on memory almost put me to sleep, other people in the gallery asleep and some of the jury looked like they wanted to take a nap, too.
Right after Professor Loftus testified, Officer Steven Katz (former detective and partner to Detective Lillienfeld, now Lieutenant) took the stand and testified as part of the prosecution's rebuttal case. His testimony is complete. In my opinion, he had one of the best lines of the trial in answer to a question on cross.
More to come...
