Judge Perry has adjourned the Casey Anthony trial today before the jury even entered the courtroom. The trial will resume on Monday morning.
Perry had previously declared that Saturday would be a full day. The nature of the specific legal issue that caused Perry to cancel today’s session is undisclosed.
Another possible disclosure violation by the defense was brought out by Jeff Ashton of the prosecution first thing in the morning. The witness who was the subject of that particular brouhaha was scheduled to testify today. The judge noted that the legal issue causing the adjournment was unrelated to the disclosure issue.
Observers counted about a dozen witnesses waiting in the hallway outside Courtroom 23. Therefore, a shortage of available witnesses could not have been the nature of the legal issue.
We’ll leave the speculation to the TV pundits, who know no more than we do at this point.
