Libby Hearing Today on Motion to Compel Documents
While lawyers for Lewis "Scooter" Libby yesterday moved to dismiss the Indictment against him claiming irregularities with the appointment of special counsel Patrick Fitzgerald, the Judge yesterday issued an order asking both sides for more information related to Libby's motion to compel documents, scheduled to be heard today.
One thing I noted in a brief review of the Libby's pleadings on the document issue is the continued emphasis on Libby's faulty memory. Team Libby says it has spent months researching the principles of memory. It sounds like there could be a battle royale at trial between psychological memory experts discussing the three phases of memory -- the acquisition stage, the storage phase and the retrieval phase. I'm looking forward to this, having studied it extensively with two of the nation's leading experts, Elizabeth Loftus and Gary Wells, as it relates to eyewitness identification.
