But parse this, the semantics that keep giving, JREF2010, I love this case like you do:

“What really matters here, to us and we hope to everyone, is that we get closer to the truth in this case and to justice for everyone,” they said in a joint statement.

But former Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Janine Geske jumped to their defense.

“These two lawyers are top-notch,” Geske said of Strang and Buting. “Avery couldn’t have had better representation.”

Geske said attorneys sometimes become combative in cases like Avery’s.

“Going after the DA is always a part of it (defense motions for post-conviction relief),” Geske said. “Prosecutors take allegations of wrongful convictions very hard.”

Geske said Avery’s request for a new trial will ultimately be decided on its legal merits.

“Sarcasm and nastiness don’t play a role,” she said. “It doesn’t play well with judges.”
