Here all the full notes from the morning session:
After pre-trial discussion between counsel about suits, “Do you remember when suspenders were in?” “No,” the plaintiff’s side rested. This led to defense motioning for a Direct To Verdict, on the grounds that the Plaintiff has yet to prove any defaming statements. Judge denies the motion. The trial resumed at 9:45am.
Testimony of Scott Colton (Colt Cabana)
SIDEBAR, Colt is left on the stand, Punk goes into a side room. Leading to a tense moment as Amann and Colt tried not to make eye-contact.
At this point, an entire class of 8th graders enter the courtroom.
Before court resumes, the attorneys get in a fight over how much footage from the 2014 Royal Rumble can be shown. Amann is on screen, but his lawyers do not want footage of Kane chokeslamming Punk through the announce table shown to the jury.
Judge: “I don’t know who Kane is.” Counsel: “The big man without a shirt.”
Judge calls counsel into the hallway, where indistinct shouting is heard.
Testimony of Phil Brooks (CM Punk)
