Mid-Day Martinez C-M Update

No Daily Journal entries of interest and no new opinions, so I bring you this mid-day update on the Martinez capital proceedings from Fort Bragg. According to the Fayetteville Observer, here, the MJ warned the trial counsel to stop laughing at statements made by the defense counsel (comment away about the appropriateness of that, and whether you have ever wanted to do the same thing).

Yesterday, see Fayetteville Observer report here, Martinez's defense counsel asked that a panel member be removed due to concerns about the member's statements in a memo to the MJ. The memo wanted to know why after the member's question to a witness was blocked by the MJ that the defense counsel was allowed to ask a nearly identical question of the witness.
