Did You Know?

[Michael Kuzak here at the Los Angeles Supreme Court in Los Angeles, CA. Michael has more, clearing his throat]
Supreme Court Judge Donald Tytell:Mr. Kuzak, the court has decided not to entertain your rebuttal.
Michael Kuzak:If it pleases the court, I would respectfully ask...
Supreme Court Judge Donald Tytell:Counsel, it would please the court if you take your seat.
[Mr. Kuzak has done enough already, so he'll take a seat and sit down. Los Angeles Supreme Court Judge Donald Tytell has something to say and address it in the Los Angeles Supreme Court]
Supreme Court Judge Donald Tytell:All of us have reviewed the transcripts on this case with a great deal of scrutiny. And we unanimously agree that this was an extremely balanced and close trial. In fact, it could be argued that on the record, the defendant appeared to have established to reasonable doubt. The jury obviously found otherwise which was certainly within their problems. But it cannot be disputed. That the prosecutor's ability to establish the defendant as a liar, played an integral part in her ability to secure a conviction. And it is likely that the district attorney never would have been able to do this, and she properly advise defense counsel of the card she was holding. Now it is our custom to go in session and issue written opinions, but since our respective positions are so clearly unanimous in this instance. And since justice delayed in some cases amounts to justice denied. We are ruling now. The surprise DNA evidence, prejudice the defendant's right to a fair trial under the United States Constitution, accordingly we hereby set aside the verdict, and the death penalty, and order a new trial to be scheduled immediately.
[A.D.A. Margaret Flanagan looked forward to it. Jackie has praised to God, that it will help saved her husband Earl Williams' life. Victor give thanks to Michael Kuzak]
Supreme Court Judge Donald Tytell:This matter is remanded to Supreme Court for retrial.
[Mr. Kuzak and Ms. Flanagan has thanked the Supreme Court Judge Donald Tytell for everything]
Supreme Court Judge Donald Tytell:Thank you, Mr. Kuzak and Ms. Flanagan. We're adjourned.
