Update: Lee Free to Attend Trial

     Court opened on time this morning (Tuesday, May 31), at 8:30 sharp. Judge Perry is a real stickler when it comes to that. Usually the trial starts at 9 a.m., but today, Mark Lippmann argued the same rule of sequestration for Caylee's uncle, Lee. Obviously, he is looking out for the interests of Caylee's immediate family. The state had no objection, but Cheney Mason argued that he found no case law where an uncle qualifies as next of kin.
     Judge Perry ruled that since Lee has already been deposed by the state, in which the defense also attended, the rule of sequestration does not apply. Lee is free to sit in on the trial.

Hi Dave: I always wondered why the Anthonys visits to the jail were cut off. Now I think I know. You don't want Mom, Dad and Lee to come when you are going to accuse George and Lee of molesting casey. I figure the visits were cut off when the new defense was manufactured. I have to say I think more of George and Cindy now than I did before the trial started. I think the new defense is backfiring on Casey's dream team. I think the jury can see real pain in the eyes and voices of George and Cindy. I don't doubt that members of the jury may think the same.

I thought JP would let Lee be able to be in the court room. He is probably wanting to hear all of this stuff first hand to see just how evil his sister really is and how she plans to throw him under the bus. He is also there for support for Cindy and George.
