Of course the clown liars are going to plead they won’t be able to get a fair and impartial jury in the local area due to all the news coverage, protests, blog posts, FB page firestorms, et.al.
And another reason to get these people out of dodge for the trial: the judge and Mike’s prima donna lawyer could have some bad blood. Judge Freeman was wife-murderer Darren Mack’s initial lawyer. Rick Cornell, Mike’s liar, er, lawyer, got Mack a retrial at a hearing based on his argument that Mack’s first lawyers—Judge Freeman among them—didn’t instruct him properly.
So, there is no doubt in my mind they will beg the court to let them try the case somewhere else. Will probably sue for a venue in the most rural part of Nevada they can hope for where puppy mills could be part of the landscape and sympathies may run with “victims of the animal rights/vegan agenda.”
Might try to head to Las Vegas, but there are long battles over puppy mill stores there with Las Vegas the only city in the country to have passed a ban only to retract it. Though they could pass it again and perhaps soon.
And there’s the puppy store owner who tried to light the store on fire with 27 animals in it! So heading to Vegas for trial doesn’t seem like a wise trick. Somewhere along the Loneliest Road in America would be just about right, the only place they could get what they think is a “fair” trial. Somewhere between Eureka and Austin where the inbred hunting crowd is pissed off at animal rights activists for spoiling their fun.
Now of course they won’t bring that plea up for awhile, sometime into the middle of next Spring. And if the case has to move to a new venue, that could add months to the time the trial actually gets under way with jury selection.
And all the while the accused perps could have their mitts on puppies and kittens, doing who knows what to them, injecting them with “fluids” and vaporizing them in a desperate attempt to keep them at least 10% alive going out the door. Because once they are gone they are—in most cases if the Yelp reviews are to be believed—forgotten.
Good news though: Judge hasn’t budged on any of the other shenanigans the Schneiders’ liars have come up with. So hopefully he’ll make them stay here and take their medicine like they forced those poor dogs to do even though they themselves aren’t qualified as veterinarians!
