The Judge in the Casey Anthony Trial shut it down when Jose Baez revealed he did not have a witness to bring forth on Monday after two of his witnesses were not allowed to testify.
It appears that Jose Baez is playing fast and loose with the rules of the court and he got his hands slapped on Friday, Saturday and now today because he is not following the rules of evidence with the Prosecution. I think he was watching too much Perry Mason when he grew up. That’s just for TV Jose, it is not real.
This is not the first time that Jose has not played by the rules, it seems he didn’t pay his child support either and was denied admittance into the bar until he brought his support current. Rules are rules Jose, and you are not exempt, you must watch what the Judge says, or a mistrial may be ordered. If that happens and it is Jose’s fault, you can be sure that Casey Anthony will be looking for a whole new defense team.
It will be interesting tomorrow to see if Jose has learned his lessons and starts playing by the rules. Court is ordered back in session at 9 a.m.
