I am not a lawyer, and therefore appreciate that what may seem bizarre to the layman may in fact be perfectly normal for a lawyer.
However, I must confess that I concur with the prosecution team in the Michael Jackson child molestation case; where they accuse the defence of abusing the judicial process.
It seems that the defence have been demanding the medical records of the alleged victim and his family; including gynecology and ultrasound records for his mother, and information on his 3 month old brother.
Precisely what use, or relevance, to the case is the gynecological records of the mother?
The defence did, seemingly, respond to the prosecution lambasting them. However, their response is sealed under the gag order.
We are therefore left to speculate as to what on earth they need this information for; other than to humiliate, and intimidate the witnesses.
