Defense Attorney Delivers Closing Argument In Anna Nicole Smith Case

anna-nicole-smith-case-clos.jpg

We're so thankful that this whole case is finally coming to a close.

Howard K. Stern's lawyer, Steve Sadow, gave his closing arguments in the Anna Nicole Smith case on Thursday, telling jurors that Stern was "a guy whose been with her since 2001. Witnesses have said he cherished her, loved her. She was the love of his life."

He also attacked the prosecutors, accusing them of "deceiving jurors" with misleading evidence and trying to win the case "at all costs," rather than telling the truth. One of his examples included a testimony from a witness who suggested that a picture of Smith with a bruised face was the cause of an argument with Stern.

Sadow argued that Smith actually had gone under cosmetic surgery, which would have caused the bruising. He told the jury, "These were introduced by the prosecution to give you the impression that Howard Stern had done something to Anna and they know it isn't true."

During his argument, Sadow actually turned to the prosecution and questioned, "How do you do this in a courtroom?" he shouted. "You don't deceive the people making the decision. Judge Robert Perry was forced to step in and remind the defense attorney to speak to the jury and not direct his remarks to the prosecutors in the court room.

Sadow's finished his arguments, saying, "She decided to deal with her chronic pain with medication. It's the patient's decision as long as the patient knows the choices she has."

Sad. We just hope this whole thing ends as soon as possible.

MELtdown Avoids Giving Deposition!

wenn5425345jb.jpg

Is this really shocking? Of course he's going to try and stay away - he knows he is FUCKED!

Sources close to MELtdown Gibson are revealing that the actor is desperately attempting to avoid his deposition until after the El Lay County DA decides whether or not to prosecute the douchebag in his domestic violence investigation!

Apparently, the deposition was scheduled over two weeks ago, but despite this, Mel took off out of the country to go fishing!

Spineless!

What a useless piece of garbage!

We're confident he'll get his, though - it's just a matter of time!

Thoughts??

Dr. Murray's Lawyers Say MJ Killed Himself!

conradap091116028217__opt111__opt.jpg

Dr. Conrad Murray's legal team has come up with a verrrrrry interesting defense for their client's trial!

Dr. Murray's lawyers will be arguing the defense that Michael Jackson administered the deadly dose of Propofol to himself!!!

Oh, really?

Sources say the defense plans to argue the fact that Dr. Murray only administered 25 mg of Propofol to MJ, but when he left the room to use the bathroom (for two minutes), Jackson self-injected the rest of the bottle (close to 20 ml) because he was "frustrated"!

The defense will also be arguing that MJ "liked to push it" when it came to his sleeping meds, and if Dr. Murray had been trying to hide the bottles of Propofol from the authorities, why didn't he hide the one that rolled under MJ's nightstand?

Hmmm.

Stone cold defense or….?

Conrad Murray's Lawyers Not Happy With The D.A.'s Office!

conradap091116028217__opt11.jpg

We think they're trying to make an issue out of nothing!!

While the investigation against Dr. Conrad Murray's role in Michael Jackson's death trudges along, the quack's lawyers are getting cranky because they think the El Lay County D.A. is acting shady and not turning over all the documents and reports to them in a timely fashion!

A rep for Murray's lawyer, Ed Chernoff, says:

"We remain confused by how suspiciously slow the D.A. has been in turning over the documents. We have not received anywhere near all of it."

According to the D.A.'s office, however, Murray's team needs to hold their horses!

A rep says:

"The District Attorney's office is turning them over as soon as they are copied and cataloged. There is a huge number of documents and the process takes time."

What do U think?? Is the D.A. being shady or are Murray's lawyers just obnoxious??
