Re: Anon Sparrow - Criminal Trial Scheduled to begin Feb. 22 2011 "Sparrow has to convince the judge of nothing. The prosecution has to convince the judge that there's any merit whatsoever to the very idea of "attempted stalking" in this case, and that if there is, back it up factually" In reading upon this matter, what consistently stays at the back of my mind is how much of a case does Kim Beloitte have to present to convince a judge she had reasonable cause to fear, be importuned or be intimidated by AS's behavior. How likely is a judge to just take her word for it rather than say "bitch, please, 4 year-olds shrug off bigger and better flames at daycare"? It brings to mind the case of the million dollar pants guy that sued a dry cleaner for millions of dollars because of an alledged false advertising claim of "satisfaction garanteed" and the judge threw out the argument because the man's criteria of "satisfaction" was unattainable and beyond the realm of reason. In other words, I ask how much weight could or would KB's flimsy claim bear de facto?
