Hurley Says Doyle, Marotta Won't Be Called to Testify
Steve Hurley, defense attorney for DOA employee Georgia Thompson, said this afternoon that although he included Gov. Jim Doyle and former DOA Secretary Marc Marotta on a pre-trial list of "potential witnesses and involved persons," he does not plan to call them to testify.
Hurley made the remarks after trial action concluded for the day. The prosecution, led by U.S. Attorney Steven Biskupic, rested its case today, leaving the defense to begin making its case when the trial resumes tomorrow morning.
The trial resumes tomorrow at 8:30 a.m., when the judge is set to rule on prosecution motions to limit the defense's use of expert witnesses.
