I see a Dorothy Simms book in the future. This one will be on my read list.

You want to read the book of the atty. who did practically nothing in the courtroom except hug casey and assure her everything would be fine?

Actually Baez took his first payment out of the ABC TV money she received for the videos and pictures of Caylee ... Judge Perry made Baez give an accounting of the distribution of the $200k ... then in March 2010 Orange County declared Casey indigent and Baez went on the taxpayers dollar/payroll. Cheney Mason, Dorothy Sims and the rest of the group worked pro bono. Baez was receiving taxpayer money after March 2010 as did the witnesses he called.

I searched and searched and cannot find how much Orange County pays an attorney to handle indigent cases. I do know several days after the jury was dismissed for the day and the lawyers and Judge Perry would stay behind to discuss things my internet live stream carried that portion.

Baez would start the whining needing more money for this or that. Even the witnesses he called ... the plant lady, the bug man from Nebraska, Dr. 'the whacko' Spitz, the doping or drinking grief woman the taxpayers of Florida paid the bill for those people ... lodging, travel and whatever fees they charged to testified.

It was like the A team came in for Burdick, Ashton & George and then Baez went to the highways and byways and picked up his witnesses.

Civil attorney Charles Greene was court appointed to defend Casey in the Zenaida Gonzalez case ... so the Florida taxpayers are paying him too ... since she is still classified as indigent ... even though she has a new computer, cell phone, cam, a puppy and new piercings.

Apparently Dorothy Sims was working pro bono on the appeal of the four lies to LEO and now she wants to bail ... so I assume if Orange County releases Sims another lawyer, at Florida taxpayers expense, will be appointed by the courts to represent Casey in her appeal ... whoopee just keep the taxpayer dollars rolling!!!

Yep. Her vantage point could be interesting.

The few times they let Dorothy Sims speak she was too soft spoken and squeaky. She didn't really bring any pazazz to the courtroom ... Linda Drane Burdick could run circles around Sims.

She did excel at hugging and patting ... must be her forte!

I couldn't care less what Baez has done or his next move....I am a conservative that would be more interested in Joan (Baez) than Jose.

I personally don't give a hoot what they do either, they're the train wreck I can't resist rubbernecking.

I want to see them pushing a grocery cart ... homeless living on the streets of Florida ... with cardboard signs "will work for beer." You think maybe Joan is akin to Jose!
