First, I want to say thanks to Chris for supplying this wonderful account of the

Second, I have an observation. The examinations, cross examinations and
redirects of these 2 witnesses as described above seems way too short to have

After I got home from court around 2:15pm, I did some real-world work, then
around 5pm got started on writing the report as I have been doing.

But I was dead tired and couldn't focus. Re-reading the same sentence
repeatedly. So I decided to take a short nap.

I woke up around 3am and didn't have the substantial time available to write the
report with the details I have been.

So I submitted the portion I'd started on, along with a summary of each
examination. I'd also sent a PDF of my actual 22 pages of notes to Pamela in
case she spotted something needing more details (though I'd hardly call my notes
usable or even legible.)

I don't know if I'll be able to swing back and turn it into a full report
(there's more days to cover after all).

Once Pamela gets enough donations, I'm led to believe we will be purchasing all
the transcripts and we'll have a far better record than my humble efforts.
