So What’s Next In The Derek Chauvin Case…Well.
An attorney for Derek Chauvin filed a motion for a new trial yesterday and I mean they are finding mistakes with everyone and everything, the judge, the jurors, the prosecutors, and more.
Allegations include prosecutorial misconduct, juror misconduct, witness intimidation and the impact of publicity.
The new court filing alleges the publicity during the trial threatened its fairness, and a defense expert witness was intimidated after he testified, but before the jury deliberated.
The Court “abused its discretion” in not granting a change of venue or sequestering the jury, the court filing says.
Nelson also wrote the prosecutors committed misconduct “including but not limited to: disparaging the Defense; improper vouching; and failing to adequately prepare its witnesses.”
This case is far from over…
One Thing That Is Over and that is Trump on Facebook, At Least For Now.
Earlier today the Facebook oversight board decided to meet to determine whether they should lift the ban placed on former president Trump.
Well they have decided to keep that ban on Trump going at least for now and released the following statement:
“As we stated in January, we believe our decision was necessary and right, and we’re pleased the board has recognized that the unprecedented circumstances justified the exceptional measure we took,” Nick Clegg, VP of Global Affairs and Communications, said in the statement.
The board said, however, that Facebook must review its decision to block Trump from the platform within six months.
“However, while the board has not required Facebook to immediately restore Mr. Trump’s accounts, it has not specified the appropriate duration of the penalty. Instead, the board criticized the open-ended nature of the suspension, calling it an ‘indeterminate and standard less penalty,’ and insisted we review our response. We will now consider the board’s decision and determine an action that is clear and proportionate,” the statement said.
In the meantime, Clegg said, Trump’s accounts will remain suspended.
We’ll see what happens in 6 months with this
