    So, setting all passion about the trial proceedings aside, I’d like to discuss Uriah and his objections. I wasn’t there, but I watched the trial video. For the most part, I followed the logic in Uriah’s objections pretty well, albeit a few of the points were sketchy here and there, but nothing seemed to stand out quite as badly as his logic on the murder charge. It’s neither here nor there to discuss exactly what I noticed to be wrong with his presentation of that, but what I want to discuss is how nobody in the court caught it. Evermore is full of very believing, innocent minded people. Uriah came at them like a skeptic and they didn’t know how to counter him… Did anyone else notice this? It wasn’t that he was unbeatable so much as they didn’t know how to get around his statement– And he was awful good at it too. I find Uriah a very intriguing character. What do we know about him anyway?

    I think a lot of it had to do with the fact that Sykes was the one opposing him and he stated himself he had no clue what he was doing but was the best person they had for the job. So it seems as if none of Evermore knows how to do legal procedures…

    Perhaps we should have some mock-trials to practice and sharpen the Evermorians skills for the next time this happens…. Or hope Uriah represents our side next time. XD

    My day job is as a lawyer — granted, a modern American one — and to my ear, Uriah’s objections sounded impressive but mostly were not legit.  For example, “circumstantial” is not a real objection.  But as you point out, no one was equipped to deal properly with them.  I would guess 80% of what Sephis sustained, he should have overruled instead.  And yes, Sykes was given the assignment less than 90 minutes before the trial started and had never acted as a lawyer before.

      You should have been appointed instead 😂 we might have found better results.

        Well maybe, although armchair lawyering is nothing like actually having to stand up and speak.  But I got to coach Sykes, which was so awesome — one of my best Evermore experiences!
