Unexpectedly, nothing happened today. A new issue arose and so we had to send the jury away while we deal with it. The jury is to return tomorrow after lunch to continue the trial, assuming the issue has been resolved.
From time to time these things happen. It’s unfortunate, but part of the process. A jury trial is not a finely tuned watch that always runs on time. It’s more like an abstract painting – the lawyers may know what general loom they’re going for, but things get added and removed as the trial goes on. Sometimes the end result is completely different from what everyone expected before the trial started.
Hopefully things will get sorted out tomorrow morning and the next witness can start after lunch. Stay tuned!
