Pirate Bay Trial Compared to Perry Mason

Published fredag 20 februari 2009 kl 14.01
Pirate Bay Trial

The Pirate Bay trial was interrupted on Friday after a quarrel between the lawyers. The defence objected to new evidence being brought up during the proceedings without having been presented to the defence in advance.

Peter Althin, lawyer for one of the defendants, compared the practice with what he called an ”American trial” where new material was thrown in as the proceedings went along, just like in the TV-series Perry Mason. The lawyers demanded that no more documentation should be allowed until the defence had a chance to go through it.

After some deliberation the court decided to accept these demands. This means that all documentation from the prosecution must be submitted before the examination of the defendants.

The court was adjourned until all the documents had been reviewed by both parties.
