Spent most of the day watching the trial. Dave Ford was on the stand the whole day, still testifying for the home team. He was nearly finished when they recessed for the day, so presumably the cross-examination will dominate tomorrow.
Apparently the Wright Pierce objection to Mr. Ford testifying as to damages had no legs. The judge allowed virtually every detail to the steady objections of the defense.
Regardless of how this turns out, I have to say that Dave Ford has been rock steady for two days. I’ve heard it said that the expectation is that the trial will go for at least 2½ weeks.
I hope the jury holds up. They did seem a bit more engaged today, although somewhat annoyed by the many sidebar conferences.
