Overruled - Tri-State News, Weather & Sports

Overruled

So I'm doing things a little differently tonight.  I decided to wait until I got home to writetoday's entry, so of course, now it's 10pm and I'm just getting to it. :)

The title of this entry seemed so fitting after my day incourt.

Technically, it was probably only about 2 hours (orless), but you get my drift.  I wascovering the trial of a man accused of breaking into/attempting to break into??some Evansville businesses via the roof last summer.  Well, the defendant's attorney did not seemvery happy to see me in the courtroom.  Ihad my 14 News jacket on and once the jury was selected and dismissed for aquick recess he asked that the judge make me leave!  The judge said, yep, you guessed it... "overruled". Media cannot record during court sessions, but we sure as heck haveevery right to be there.  So, Istayed.  Guess that attorney won't begiving me any interviews about the case in the future!! :)  Ha! That was a first, kind of an interesting takeaway from the day...

Being in and out of the Civic Center/Courts Building somuch, I see a lot of the same people. Well, today, I had to do a double take after I'd walked by someone inthe hall.  Upon closer inspection, turnedout it was Wayne, the technician who found that long-lost diamond a week or twoago in a printer??  I didn't realize hedid work in the Civic Center, so I walked by before I put it together!  You know, Entertainment Tonight may be comingto Evansville to interview Wayne and Christi, the woman who lost the ring!  That would be pretty cool.

Wayne told me all the ladies in the Civic Center sayforget the diamond, they want him to find them rubies.  Ha!  Ithink I'd take either!! :)

Well, who knows what's in store for tomorrow, but I'll besure to let you know how it turns out!!

Until next time,

Erin
