Day 4 of Harvey Weinstein trial deliberations and it *appears* unlikely we’ll have a verdict today. Jurors have asked for more testimony to be read back to them which, according to our man in the courtroom @adamreisstv, will take “hours”. Today’s session will end early at 3pm.
Just left the Centennial Hills YMCA, an early voting location in the northwest of Las Vegas. Line to vote - in the sun w/no chairs or water - was at least 3 hours long. To vote, only one door to enter and exit. (Not the best plan.) Voters pleasant and patient.
Verdict coming in Weinstein soon. Warning all that think this is a slam dunk - it is not. Consent cases never are ... and this one is particularly difficult. I would vote to send him to jail in a heartbeat - but I’m not on the jury. Sadly.
Need a respite from our depressing politics b4 the Wednesday debate? High school buddy’s new book, Lost Tomorrows, A Rick Cahill Novel. (At least this crime is fictional!). Go wild- get the whole series. @coylem
