Trial ~ Day 3

Our day began with the News Reporters giving their summary of yesterday's proceedings. (Of course the jurors were sequested during the new report!). Then day 3 began with the Judge calling the court to order and the DA calling up a new witness. Cross examination was scathing! Jurors needed to be reminded to stay alert (move now and then to avoid the "away" display *smiles*)
Some students were experimenting with the built in movie tools and others were taking snapshots. Court reporters have taken chat logs and delivered them to Ms. McGrath. A copy of one transcript from todays proceedings is below:
