I now have enough information from independent sources to reconstruct pretty much both hearings last Thursday on the Arken and Robinson cases. Because of the surprise change in length of the hearings, many were surprised and somewhat unprepared for the quadrupling of the hearing time for each case. That is why it has been somewhat difficult to cobble together accurate notes. I am collating the notes now and will be back later to offer a summary graciously supplied from four different people in attendance at the meetings. Not all attendees were civilians. At least one is a member of one of the legal teams in attendance. The notes are fairly consistent so I feel that collectively my sources have provided accurate summaries of what turned out to be very fast moving questions and answers.
Check back here later today for more details. I won't write a separate post. I'll just amend this post.
Life has a way of interfering with my writing. Labor Day weekend proved to busier than I expected. I didn't have time to put together the summary of the hearings on Thursday. Do not despair. I *will* get them written up and posted; just not as quickly as I had expected.
