The Return of Mr. Obfuscation

NC State Bar Disciplinary Hearings Commission Chairman Lane Williamson coined the term Mr. Obfuscation in regards Dr. Brian Meehan of DNASI. In June Chair Williamson expressed his frustration at Dr. Meehan's rambling and confusing answers to questioning at Nifong's Disciplinary Hearing. Today Dr. Meehan returned to the witness stand in Nifong’s criminal contempt of court hearing.

Dr. Meehan tried to explain why the exculpatory DNA discovered at his lab wasn’t in his report of May 12, 2006. In earlier testimony Durham PD Investigator "With What" Himan testified that Dr. Meehan had discussed that DNA was found in the swabs from the false accuser and than did not match any Lacrosse Player. Himan also testified that no one had taken any notes at the meeting April 10, 2006 where Nifong, Sergeant Gottieb, Dr. Meehan and himself were present.

Dr. Defecation, I believe?

All I can say is I am glad I am not paying for that. Nifong's attorney has taken what would have been a $500 fine and turned it into a $10,000 defense.

I'm wondering if this court hearing crosses the line into obstruction of justice. Then again, that line was crossed long before now, and nothing has been done about it, so why should I trust the Tarheel state to do anything meaningful to clean its blackened reputation?

Thanks Liestoppers!

Love those pic's!!!

I wonder if it would help him any if they tied his hands to his belt. That would at least slow him down I'm sure.

Shouldn't his nickname be Dr. Meandering?

Meehan proved to be quite the variant muse. He just had this look like, "How can I lie my way out of we're fucked?"

Lawyer Anton gave Meeham good advice "Give them to much information" Stray from the subject" Made no definite statement" Eventually, they will go away. And they are.
