The Lying Expert?

A lot of electrons have been set in motion by the celebrated case of Estate of Michael J. Jackson, Deceased, John G. Branca, Co-Executor and John McClain, Co-Executor, Docket No. 17152-13, filed 3/9/17.

And the blogosphere has been positively a-Twitter.

Well, just when we thought that it was all over, trial finished, and we could settle back and wait for the opinion, barring a few missing partitive genitives, from The Great Dissenter, a/k/a The Judge Who Writes Like a Human Being, s/a/k/a The Implacable, Imperturbable, Illustrious, Incomparable, Incontrovertible, Indefatigable, Ineluctable and Ineffable Foe of the Partitive Genitive, and Old China Hand, Judge Mark V. Holmes, we get this.

“…three motions were made at trial.” Order, at p. 1.

OK, probably the usual routine stuff. And two of them are. One is to seal some stuff, and the other is to turn over a couple letters, half of which were already turned over, except the ones from Antarctica. Don’t ask.

But the third? Dig this little bombshell.

“The third was petitioner’s oral motion to exclude the expert reports and expert testimony of Weston Anson on grounds of perjury, which will be held under advisement until after briefing by the parties on this issue.” Order, at p. 2.

As we say, “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?!”

Stay tuned; plenty more where that came from, I’ll wager.
