We begin with Breaking News that on Tuesday, September 14th the case went to the jury. Meanwhile, on Thursday September 9th, Ethan Milius and Habib Balian wrapped up closing arguments for the prosecution and Dick DeGuerin commenced closing arguments for the defense. In this episode, Small Time Caveman Lawyer: Closing Arguments — Part 2, host Kary Antholis and co-host Brittany Bookbinder discuss the stark contrast between the prosecution’s appeal to the jury with a rapid-fire display of facts in evidence and the defense’s approach of courting sympathy for an elderly client and portrayal of the court’s rulings in the trial as highly prejudicial. Kary and Brittany are joined by Charles V. Bagli, who is covering the trial for The New York Times and CrimeStory.com, to discuss the day’s arguments, as well as the fireworks that erupted between the parties once the jury left the courtroom.
