Judge Jane F. Kauvar was asked by an attorney for the defense in the Alaska v. Straughn case to suppress pictures and expert witnesses submitted as evidence by the state. Judge Kauvar has not ruled on the motions.
Case Motion #23: Motion in Limine: Pictures filed by Attorney Michael Walleri 6/18/2013
Case Motion #24 Motion in Limine: Expert Witnesses filed by Attorney Michael Walleri 6/18/2013
Which photos is the defense seeking to keep out as evidence? Perhaps these?
Or could it be a recent photo of the so-called “dismantled” boilers lurking like snakes in the grass? See previous post: When is “Dismantled” Just “Unplugged”? Newspaper Promotes Defense Fabrication
Does the defense want to suppress the photos because the images would inflame the jury against the Straughns? Is the defense seeking to suppress all photographic evidence submitted? Did the state submit a photo of the 4 children having asthma attacks on just one day at Woodriver Elementary? Can a photo capture the suffering of not knowing you can take the next breath?
The state filed Case Motion #16 Motion in Limine to Preclude Defendants From Introducing Expert Testimony at Trial 5/28/2013. The state is seeking to exclude expert witnesses paid for by Central Boiler, the manufacturer of the two hydronic heaters above, out of the trial. Central Boiler built the two units and has much to lose by the evidence of harm already in court records.
