    Without complete information, there is no way to know what the implications of a cover up would be. We may have to wait for the movie to know what is in Jett's medical records.

    Shurland.....

    "He also noted that from the beginning of the trial, his client was up against money, power and privilege as he was a defendant who was unable to properly finance his defense.

    "We had factors that created a financial hardship for the lawyer, albeit he was given a Crown brief — which was really a token assistance — there were witnesses we wanted to bring but we were unable to afford them," he said.

    Shurland added that the "famous witnesses" who were brought in were accommodated by the system more so than the Bahamians who should be given the privilege.

    The cost to the defendant to travel to Nassau and maintain himself during the course of the trial, as well as bring witnesses in is on Lightbourne, Shurland pointed out.

    "And if he wishes to continue to have a lawyer like myself, obviously it's going to cost him a lot of money," he acknowledged.

    Shurland noted that during the period of the trial, Lightbourne is responsible for room and board and all expenses associated with being in Nassau, along with travel expenses for any witnesses.

    The prosecution has the assistance of the government or their department to bring in witnesses as they see fit," he added.

    "Look at the economy, the complainant is a man of substantial means and they are able to afford it, even if they can't come to where the trial is being held, the government is obligated to pay for them."


    this whole case has Scientology stink all over it IMO

    Perhaps Shurland can grant a discount for his services under the circumstances. yah sure!

    TMZ mentions The Punch as the source. This seems to be a rag that should be treated with caution.

    Lol, no comment too obscure for the scifags to not respond to: MySpace Johnny: "I would really like to see tmz use thier resources to find out if the coraner of the travoltas was a scientologist wich would add some legitimatacy to this claim and to
    see if the reason the blackmailer was blackmailing was for that very reason." Leese: "And all we can think is...hmmmm....must be scientology’s fault. Seriously, you need to educate yourself. Read something about Scientology."
