DAY 12 – LIBERAL MORONS WHO DON’T WANT CANCER

Just a couple pretty girls at the last farmers market I went to…

It has been icy in San Francisco the last few days, with thick, drizzly fog. It feels like the gray, gloomy days of winter, or maybe I’m just riddled with intrusive thoughts of how the EPA has known that RoundUp causes cancer all along. It’s a short walk from the Civic Center parking lot to the courthouse, but it’s enough to make this morning’s hair blow-out a waste of my time.

Thankfully, that gray turns bright blue by afternoon, both outside and inside the courtroom. As a preview, the Plaintiff rests on the most brilliant of notes. The video testimony of Monsanto employee Steven Gould provokes some big emotion in the jury. I can’t believe that Monsanto couldn’t find a way to get the Gould zinger email eliminated. Thank goodness they didn’t, because it seems Gould’s testimony alone might have nudged the jury to deliver a win for the Plaintiff.

Also today, government-veteran economist Dr.Charles Benbrook “tidies things up,” and serves to drive home some key points about the deceptive behavior of Monsanto and the US EPA.

PREJURY

We convene and Monsanto proposes a curative instruction for Judge Bolanos to tell the jury NOT to consider Dr. Sawyer’s references to the “many other studies” that Bolanos excluded from testimony. Both sides agree, with some minor modifications.

DAY 13 – NON-SUITS AND NO-SUITS

I advised myself incorrectly that the pre-jury meeting would start at 9am, but that gives me time to chat with the video guy. We discuss how the Plaintiff forgot to show the adorable video clip of Johnson and his son baking a cake on the day of Johnson’s testimony. Perhaps they will add that in Closing Statements. It’s so heartbreaking to know that Johnson will not have many birthdays more to celebrate with his family.

The Plaintiff lawyers enter at 9:30, all smiles and joviality. Perhaps they slept a bit this weekend after resting their case on Friday. Monsanto’s side is not as jovial, though Ms. Edwards has a bit of cheer. I know that she is representing Monsanto. I don’t offer up compliments to the defense because there are few to give. However, she really presents herself in a lovely, classy and non-aggressive way. I would like to convert her to the other side.

There are so many people sick with a cold in the jury and viewing audience today. It seems that there is a Patient Zero in the jury whom I saw coughing last week. Just like a CDC map of disease migration, the geography right around Patient Zero have also developed coughs. The clerk asks, “Do we have several people sick on
