Bernie asked for sidebar.
O'Mara on direct.
NB: He and the mayor played the tapes, to the best of his recollection.
NB: There was no consultation with LE about how to play the tapes for family members.
NB: He doesn't recall who played the recordings, either himself or the mayor. It was done from a disc with a laptop.
NB: He asked the family members if they wanted LE present, they didn't. Opinion of Lee and other LE was not asked. Lauer 911 tape was played more than once, at request of family member(s), he doesn't recall which one. He doesn't recall a reason for them wanting the call repeated, except they wanted it.
NB: Mayor and himself only representatives of city of Sanford present.
Bernie on cross.
NB: Calls were played for family before public release, because it was the decent thing to do.
O'Mara said something about next witness appearing in an unusual way. Bernie said something, and there was a sidebar.
