UPDATE Opening Arguments Have Begun

#Justice4Cecily- PACK THE COURTS!! Facebook

Today was a busy day! We finished jury selection, heard opening arguments, finished questioning the first witness for the prosecution, and began questioning the second witness for the prosecution.

♥Thanks to everyone who came out throughout the course of the day to support Cecily♥ As one of her lawyers Marty Stolar said; "at the end of the day, having people in the courtroom, makes them play by the rules."

Next week we will only be in court; Monday (when we will be ending early, because the DA has a doctors appointment), Wednesday, and Friday until noon due to religious holidays and the Judge's calendar day.  

See you bright and early Monday morning! Lucy Parks New York, NY

Tell NY District Attorney Cyrus Vance, To Drop The Charges Against Cecily Sign The Petition Only takes 2 minutes.

Key Ruling: Judge Ronald Zweibel said, that Defense can ask about officer bovell’s past violent conduct. Cecily’s lawyers were able to once again bring up their desire to mention Officer bovell’s history of violent conduct and gained permission to question him about it.

Lawyers have spent much of the past week in pretrial arguments concerning how extensively Ms. McMillan's lawyers can reference Officer bovell's personnel record.

The prosecutor has admitted that bovell has been reprimanded for his involvement in the Bronx ticket fixing scandal-which goes to his truthfulness and ethics.

In addition, the defense will be allowed to ask about other violent incidents bovell has been involved with, including multiple suits against him.

NYPD officer grantley bovell, is also being sued by another Occupy campaigner. Austin Guest alleges bovell injured him too; on March 17th, the same night that Cecily McMillan was injured. by Jon Swaine, New York theguardian.com, Friday 4 April 2014

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
