Defense Attorney Complains About His Time Slot
After the jury was excused a break around 3 p.m., Schultz attorney Stephen Morgan complained to Judge Ebert that he always seemed to be taking the floor late in the day. Morgan pointed out to Ebert that his opening statement was offered late last Tuesday, and on Friday he didn't finish his cross-examination of Ray Carey until nearly 6 p.m. He said if testimony continues, he wouldn't get a crack at Kratochwill until after 5 p.m. today.
Ebert wasn't too sympathetic, telling Morgan that he "didn't want to stop that early. We have a lot of witnesses to go."
