During the Friday morning recess, our attorney Ms. Cull confronted me and said that “they” (meaning the Wright Pierce team I presume) have been reading this blog, and that their attorney had represented to the judge that I thought Wolfeboro’s expert witness Robert Bowden did a bad job. She was noticeably furious.
I don’t know what I’m supposed to do with that. My remarks about his testimony are contained in this post and this post. I think did a pretty good job of holding back. I’ll tell you what I really think after the trial is over.
Here’s the thing. I didn’t hire Wright Pierce. I had no knowledge of the alleged problems until this lawsuit was announced. I had nothing to do with filing the lawsuit. I have been sitting quietly in the back of the courtroom for three weeks. I have not spoken with anyone from the Wright Pierce camp – ever. I have not spoken to anyone on the Jury. Wolfeboro’s attorney told me the second day that they had been instructed not to talk to me. I’m a fly on the wall.
I haven’t written any letters to the newspaper about this trial. What I have done is to record my observations and impressions in this blog. I haven’t advertised the blog. I haven’t sent anything to anyone. People who are interested in what I have to report and say about the trial can read the blog if they so choose.
If WPs lawyers decide to represent the contents of this blog to the court, I can’t do anything about that. I don’t know if they characterized the blog accurately or not.
As I understand it this was a representation made in chambers. There’s no way a lawyer’s representation of a blog should have any effect on the decisions of a US District Court Judge, particularly one who has been around as long as Judge DiClerico.
If there are setbacks in Wolfeboro’s case, the problem lies elsewhere.
