Here we go again. Yesterday was pretty eventful in the comments section, and we didn’t even have a verdict. My plan is to make it the courthouse by 9 so I can see if Stephen Swann and John Eagle show up as their subpoenas required.
The jury is scheduled to arrive at 9:30.
Updates after the jump as soon as available.
UPDATE 9:05 a.m.
Swann and Eagle are nowhere to be found. But I did find a motion filed by ESD to quash the subpoenas of Swann and former CFO Chris Burrow. Yesterday, the two subpoenas I saw with my own eyes were for Swann and Eagle. (Props to commenter CarolinaBorn for first mentioning Burrow’s subpoena.) ESD argues that the subpoenas, which are purported to be for the bifurcated portion of the trial, are premature since the jury is still deliberating on liability.
Just spotted Swann with ESD lead counsel Chrysta Castaneda. Plaintiffs’ attorney Brent Walker is trying to get a hearing with Judge D’Metria Benson on ESD’s motion to quash the subpoenas.
Swann and Eagle, escorted separately by police officers, just entered the judge’s chambers.
Eagle exits, then re-enters 5 minutes later.
UPDATE 3:47 p.m.
Ladies and gentlemen, we have a verdict. I just don’t know what it is yet. Waiting to be let in the courtroom for the announcement.
I’ll post the verdict and as many details of the charges as I can scribble down in a new post.
