The Presiding Judge Giancarlo Massei Is Reported To Be Unwell

The kindly but very sharp Judge Massei apparently has contracted pneumonia.

We wish him well. He is winning high praise for conducting a fair and very careful trial.

Court sessions are canceled for the rest of this week, and possibly for next week as well, which would mean the next trial session would be on September 14.

Below: Judge Massei and the jury at Meredith’s house 18 April. And Italy-based Andrea Vogt has a good overview of where things stand in the case right now.

We have planned for the summer recess, by the way. We’ll be posting several long takes, including our very careful summation of the entire Case For The Prosecution, which will probably require several posts in itself.
