PETA Trial, Day 2

With the jury selection process complete, the animal-cruelty trial of two employees of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) kicked into high gear today.Yesterday’s big news was that Judge Cy Grant ruled against the defense’s motion to exclude evidence potentially tying the defendants to more animal-dumping incidents than those observed by police. That means jurors (and the public) will probably hear more evidence about just how big the PETA problem in North Carolina really is.So far today, one juror has been excused (she came into the courtroom wearing a hospital bracelet), both sides have made their opening arguments, two witnesses have testified, and — right before lunch — Judge Grant denied the defense’s request for a mistrial.For a full rundown of today’s action, check tonight.Click here for a synopsis of yesterday’s legal wrangling.
