Expert says assertion that Anthony conducted extensive searches for 'chloroform' was based on bad computer data
MIAMI — Assertions by the prosecution that Casey Anthony conducted extensive computer searches on the word “chloroform” were based on inaccurate data, a software designer who testified at the trial said Monday.

You are mistaking my comment, mostly my fault because I was being lazy.. I was simply stating that if that lie was presented to the jury, it would not have been ground breaking because we all KNEW the defense was lieing (unless your common sense free). You're absolutely right, the prosecution shouldn't lie but neither should a defense lawyer who is also looking to start his own law firm. Our entire justice system is a joke.. from murderers walking free, to jurors that apparently watch too much NCIS and too lazy to put puzzle peices together.
RULE 4-3.3 CANDOR TOWARD THE TRIBUNAL
(a) False Evidence; Duty to Disclose. A lawyer shall not knowingly:
(1) make a false statement of fact or law to a tribunal or fail to correct a false statement of material fact or law previously made to the tribunal by the lawyer;
(2) fail to disclose a material fact to a tribunal when disclosure is necessary to avoid assisting a criminal or fraudulent act by the client;
(3) fail to disclose to the tribunal legal authority in the controlling jurisdiction known to the lawyer to be directly adverse to the position of the client and not disclosed by opposing counsel; or
(4) offer evidence that the lawyer knows to be false. A lawyer may not offer testimony that the lawyer knows to be false in the form of a narrative unless so ordered by the tribunal. If a lawyer, the lawyer’s client, or a witness called by the lawyer has offered material evidence and the lawyer comes to know of its falsity, the lawyer shall take reasonable remedial measures including, if necessary, disclosure to the tribunal. A lawyer may refuse to offer evidence that the lawyer reasonably believes is false.

you think the entire jury was simply watching NCIS and decided to go with that method?
as a jury member, you cannot put a puzzle together and judge that way..consider even ATS...a band of people united under a general perspective that conspiracys happen..yet we cannot put a single puzzle together we all agree on here. Imagine if a jury worked like we do here...everyone would be executed.
The jury's job is to ignore all the conjecture, hypothesis's, and emotional arguments. They must look past innuendos and nonsense and go with just what the facts show...and judge that way. That is the only way anything can be solved. I can sit back and think of a dozen different senarios that is plausable on this specific trial that is against the versions currently cooked up by both sides...but my opinion, or suspicion means jack.
The jury made the right call...all 12 of them without a single dissenting voice all understood that opinions and speculation matters not...its about the proof, the evidence, and it pointed to nothing in particular.
The justice system may be imperfect, but I don't see how pushing for opinions and speculation will make it better...it would make it much worse.
If I had my way, I would remove the jury and in its place, put a simple computer that disregards any emotion, speculation, hypothesis, and other things irrelevant..just judge based on connecting dots...and let the state deal with the burden of proof.

Oh yes.. absolutely. I believe the generation of today, or should I say television generation of today, think that there's going to be that magical peice of evidence that's going to point at someone or some thing so they can solve the mystery of the week.. and if you honestly think that an every day Joe, that make his 5.15 an hour and got picked for jury duty will 100% of the time have a keen detectives mind while watching the prosecution and defense go at it you're either naive or just sadly mistaken. Secondly, yes again.. it actually IS the jury's job to peice together the crime from evidence at the crime scene.
In fact, as we all very well know that's exactly the lawyers job to peice together a scenario and the jury is supposed to weed through the BS and judge what really happened. You say the jury made the right call.. well brother, that's just where we disagree.. I believe they had NO CLUE how to be a jury as a whole and one, two, maybe more than that had an influence over the rest. I can't remember the blonde haired jurors name but she is seriously retarted and kept repeating nonsense... that's just IMHO. I respect you Saturn but this is just where we obviously disagree.

I'm about sick of listening to all this. Everyone here raising hell about the lil dumba$$ need to step back and take another look. The girl was found not guilty by 12 jurors, an obvious biased judge and media. Yet she still was found innocent of any malice in whatever happened. The media convicted her long before trial. This is no different than the distraction about some blond bimbos drug overdose during the '08 presidential primaries. Every freaking network 24-7 and not 1 thing to do with what's going on with the crap in this country or the elections. Get back to work exposing that which others would conceal.

Hillbilly123069, I could not have said this better than you did friend. The media tried and convicted Casey long before the trial even began, and not they are mad because the Jury found her not guilty. I kept track of this, and it seems to me that the entire case the prosecution presented was wholly fabricated, and myself and my family are wondering why Casey's child molester father hasn't been arrested for his own crimes, and questioned about what he was doing to his daughter. I think the child died accidentally, the father hid the body, coached his daughter, who feared him... into lying to the police, and then placed the body, and placed the tape and gas can in her car's trunk. I am glad she was not convicted, it proves Justice still exists in America.
