Possibly. I don't know what he will say that the defense would want to challenge, except possibly TM's height.


Drugs etc?

The state will limit it's question to cause of death.  Cross exam will be limited with the ME as state's witness.

What about drugs?

In Guy's opening statement, I thought he dwelled on the autopsy for emotional impact, without making many substantive points. I expect Dr. Bao's direct will be much the same.

They carried him in a body bag. They put him on an autopsy table. You'd think the poor guy was dead, or something.

Discussing the drugs found in TM's system, results we haven't seen yet, a bunch of things like that.

The state won't ask about drugs on direct, so the defense won't be able to bring it up on cross.

As Cboldt pointed out, the defense may have to call the ME as their own witness to talk about toxicology.

How will the ME be able to testify about some parts of the autopsy report without opening the door to talk about the whole report?

I know. It's whatever Nelson says it is.

5:22 PM.

Nelson told the jury they would be excused for the day, to return at 8:30 AM on Friday, 7/5/13. She read the admonitions.

5:23 PM.

Jury excused.

I was just about to post something very much like this.

Best wishes for a happy and safe holiday to everyone here.

That's not unusual. For example, in the Diaz case:

Quote
The trial judge correctly ruled that the results of the toxicological examination were not relevant at that time. The victim's blood alcohol level was absolutely irrelevant to the medical examiner's testimony, the sole purpose of which was to establish that the cause of death was a knife wound to the victim's abdomen. Moreover, counsel's suggestion that all aspects of an autopsy are fair game for cross-examination is incorrect.

WFTV talking heads still say the state only has one more witness, citing 'good authority'.
