Nancy Grace Hacks, Sneezes Through Deposition

1/28/2010 6:34 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Nancy Grace Nancy Grace's deposition could make you sick .... if you were sitting in the same room with her.

Grace sat for her deposition in Atlanta today, in a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the parents of a woman who killed herself after getting grilled by Grace.

We're told Grace had an epic cold and barely made it through the depo. Various people in the room were bringing her Vicks cough drops, Kleenex and other accoutrement.

Our sources say the depo wasn't groundbreaking ... no smoking gun.

Much to the chagrin of Grace and CNN, the deposition was videotaped but the tape is under wraps.

Nancy Grace often brags that she never lost a case when she was a prosecutor. What a bitch. In other words, she doesn't care if someone is guilty or not. She assumes guilt and uses all her tricks and theatrics to get a conviction. Lies and deception are bad enough when done by a defense lawyer to get someone like OJ off. Lies and deception are horrifying and inexcusable when used to convict an innocent person.

As I watched the less than Graceful Nancy interview the young lady, I told my wife that she was going to commit suicide and sure enough she did as I found out several days later.

I once heard that a lawyer told his client that if a question was "troubling" they should fake a sneeze and take a moment as it would then not appear he was stalling or hesitating to answer which can look bad. It also breaks the questioner's rythm, especially if he is on a roll.

I used to like her. That is until her interview with Elizabeth Smart. She (Elizabeth) has more class in her little pinky at age 20 than Nancy will ever have. I know she champions victim rights, but at what cost, someones dignity (Elizabeths). And a cold?! Uh, puleez. and she has underlings bringing her tissues, cough drops etc. Just stop by CVS, pick up what you need, and suck it up like the rest of us and be a professional. It's all about her. Trenton is dead. Trenton's mom is dead, and her cold is the center of the universe. Give me a freakin' break.

Just think, if she would have had Brooke Muellers Judge, she might be in a REHAB instead of in court...

However, Nancy Dis-Grace will not get any sympathy from me...She's certainly earned her spot at the Deposition table through her antics and general attitude...Frankly, I'm surprised this is her first time on the receiving end, since she puts herself out there in such a defamatory manner...
She should have been sued many, many times prior to this (Duke case, her reports on others) because she sure doesn't mind leading viewers (potential jury members) down the path pointing towards guilt...
I hope the Duckett's are successful in their suit, and that Nancy Dis-Grace gets spanked hard...It's time that people like her are held accountable for their irresponsible and dangerous behaviors...
Most of all, I hope they find the child...

Anyone that watches her show, knows that the last few days she has sounded horrible. Kinda like Kermit and that happens when you have a cold!! I saw the interview and Loved that she grilled her the way she did. Too bad Casey Anthony didn't take a page out of Melinda Ducketts page!

According to Judge Pryor's opinion, Nancy Grace, "suppressed" exculpatory evidence; "knowingly" elicited testimony that "appear[ed] to be false"; and "fail[ed] ... to fulfill her responsibilities" as a prosecutor. That's about a tough-talking as appellate judges get.

disturbed    

the court made note of Grace's court actions, citing "inappropriate and illegal conduct in the course of the trial."


*Her opening statement in the case promised the jury evidence of physical abuse that she had to know would never be admissible because that entire aspect of the case had already been excluded by the judge.

*Subpoenas that contained hearing dates Grace knew to be false.

*Failure to disclose a full witness list to the defense in a timely fashion.

*Showing a chart during closing arguments that falsely stated a defense expert had not contradicted the state's case on a key issue.

*Also, during closing argument, "vouching" for the case by telling the jury she herself believed Carr to be guilty.

*And finally, performing two illegal searches of Carr's house, including one during which she was accompanied by a CNN camera crew

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nancy_Grace#Prosecutorial_misconduct

=======================================================
Other courts have criticized Grace's conduct even while upholding convictions in her cases. In a 2005 opinion, a panel of the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals said Grace "played fast and loose"[14] with her ethical duties and failed to "fulfill her responsibilities"[14] as a prosecutor........She failed to turn evidence over to his defense team that pointed to other suspects. The court noted that it was "difficult to conclude that Grace did not knowingly" elicit false testimony from a police investigator that there were no other suspects despite strong evidence to the contrary.[14]

Cannot help but wonder if Nancy Grace had not interviewed the girl then perhaps the police would have been able to locate the boy or at least information leading to the child. Some people are so set on making a name for themselves at whatever cost that they lose sight for the real reason that they are here.
