Today’s Nichols Update

Posted by Maggie on November 19, 2007

The Daily Report announces the unsurprising delay of Nichols’ trial. Again. They have a link to Judge Fuller’s order and the Defense’s Response to the State’s Emergency Motion to the Supreme Court trying to get Fuller thrown off the case. It’s the first of Judge Fuller’s orders I’ve seen and it strikes me as very fair. I know there are people on both sides of this issue who have a real bone to pick with Judge Fuller, but to me I find myself agreeing with him the majority of the time.

Though I found myself wondering this morning… the defense dropped that contempt motion against GPDSC. I’m curious about their motives. Did they sit down with GPDSC and work something out? Did they decide that with the State’s Emergency Motion it wasn’t worth it? Or is it because the State is alleging that due to Judge Fuller’s recusal from the contempt motion that he should be recused from the entire case?
