So, we were pulling our January schedules together the other day, and we wanted to make sure the January 15th status hearing was still on. Guess what we noticed?
According to the court calendar, the January 15th status hearing has been “vacated.” Does this mean Weisberg is out, and no we don’t mean out of the closet, even though we know the defense team and Weisberg are BFFs?
Could this mean Judge Leibowitz gets the nod? Inquiring minds want to know.
Checking alternate sources, the 2010 Courtroom Assignment list (published November 18, 2009) that specifies each judge’s division and assignment (civil, criminal, felony 1, felony 2, etc.), Judge Weisberg has been assigned Felony 2, while Judge Leibovitz now has Felony 1. This would indicate that Weisberg is out. We also checked the docket file for Dylan Ward and retrieved this record still showing the January 15th status hearing on the schedule:
We also noticed that Ace of Spades defender Tom Connolly has one less defendant in the Blackwater trial. His client, Nicolas Slatten, had the manslaughter charges against him dropped.
Take a read about here:
With these new developments, how can the defense claim Leibowitz would mean a delay in May 2010 trial date, especially if Connolly has more time on his hands to pitch in for his favorite Swann Street house mate, Victor Zaborsky?
Now we suspect Connolly is trying to get daylight between Victor and the other two defendants, he probably won’t be doing anymore heavy lifting than he has to.
If Connolly does NOT pick up the slack, could this signal Victor Zaborsky is running a defense that is separate and distinct, or more simply put, saving HIS little behind, from his roommates’?
There is no “I” in team.
