Rachelle Spector ordered to remove photographs!
Joe Friday would think, that in a murder case, the accused's wife would not be the center of attention for any reason. This morning, however, as has been the case so many times before in the bizarre trial of Mrs. Spectors husband, the legendary Phil Spector, the accused's wife once again has grabbed the spotlight.
Judge Larry Paul Fidler, in his first order of business after the long holiday layoff, ordered Mrs. Spector to remove a series of photographs that have been posted on her website for some time. Judge Fidler showed great restraint when ordering the removal of the photos, some of which appear to have been taken either in the courtroom or hallways just outside, a clear violation of courtroom protocol. The photos claim to be of a certain tenacious trial scribe who has relentlessly covered this trial since the very beginning, much to the chagrin of the entire Spector camp.
Judge Fidler- Mrs Spector, I don't want to get in the middle of this, but clearly you have a website that contains pictures of a person in this courtroom , in violation of a rule about taking photographs and I am asking you to take them down. This is a matter the takes seriously. Mrs Spector, Do you understand? In her front row spectator's seat, Mrs Spector nods yes. The Judge then says "Mrs Spector is nodding her head in agreement. Thank you."
Once again Justice Prevails.
Stay tuned for more almost live trial coverage as Dr. Pena is being grilled by Spectors attorney, Dorian Weinberg this afternoon.
