    For those that has been following the Scott Peterson case, I'm wondering if anyone thinks that the Scott's lawyer, the high-profile Mark Gregaros, won the case to set Scott free? From what I understand, his track record isn't as amazing as one would expect from a high- profile lawyer. Some examples include his representation of:

    Susan McDougal. She spent 18 months in jail.
    Wynonna Rider. Convicted of shoplifting.
    Michael Jackson. Replaced Geragos with another attorney.

    All this makes me wonder why the Petersons choose him. In my opinion, if they wanted a high-profile, successful defense lawyer, they should have gone with Johnnie Cochran's firm.

    I know Court TV does a great job keeping everyone up-to-date throughout the day (I think they are allowed to have a few reporters inside the courthouse during the trial who send updates to the station), but I've been getting most of my updates at night from their anchor Catherine Crier (I work during the day.) They're actually giving her two dedicated hours during the trial's closing arguments (which start Monday, 11/1) to talk about the case, which run from 5pm-6pm & 8pm-9pm in case you can't catch the daytime coverage like me.

    Cheers and let's see how this "Trial of the Year" wraps up!

    I heard that there is a rumor that Cochran is no longer practicing law. It is said that he is considering a career writing poems for Hallmark.
