No the winner is the people that the system fail. Milgard and Morin and other people who are wrongfully convicted. This process isn't for Garland.

It's not like appeal means a re-trial. The appeals judge will probably dismiss it pretty quickly.

I'd appeal as well if I were in his shoes. I know we all want him to roll over and die, but it's not going to happen.

It can't be easy trying to represent a monster but he picked this profession and it's his job to give it 100% for his client. I can tell you his partner would have as least raised a few questions threw cross examination and showed some passion to the jury.

Kim Ross likely took a big hit to his career with this case.

Admittedly I did not examine Mr. Ross' face during the trial, but this off the record opinion from the unnamed reporter stuff is pretty weak.

There were two trial lawyers working on the case throughout and a third came on at the end to help with the argument on sentencing (for the proper interpretation of consecutive 25 year periods).

Not wanting to be there and not doing the best you can with the facts / evidence you have are two very different things.

Unless you sat in on the privileged meetings, you have no idea what the client's instructions were or what admissions may have been made to Ross. And neither does the reporter. So at best any opinion of Ross' performance is necessarily an uninformed one.

I figured most of the heavy lifting Ross and his group did was probably during the prelim when they were determining admissibility. With the publication ban probably not a lot of people knew what was going on. I am guessing once it got to trial it probably had more to do with making sure procedures were properly followed with the evidence.
