And for one final thought on the Sheridan case before normal service is resumed on this LJ with a diet of books, television programmes, and fake game shows a reference to one explanation for the quick verdict (2 and a half hours after five weeks of evidence). On the Guardian Comment is Free blog in the Michael WHite column on the Sheridan case “downsman” writes,
“It was a Friday, in August. As any fule lawyer kno, jury decisions are often frighteningly quick on a sunny Friday. It’s a little like the high rate of caesarian deliveries on a Friday.”
Best to leave that one without comment, I think :-).
