thanks for your help. I will give you a good grade. I am an MD Ph.D surgeon and full professor so you know I know nothing about the legal system except to avoid it.. I will pay extra if you can tell me whether the judge has any leeway here or if there are tort cases I might find usefull. As you can see I never learned spell at Cornell and Columbia
I am sorry I had stepped away
The judge can over rule this that is why you would file the Motion for a new trial. You would need to exhaust all your criminal remedies before attempting any civil tort remedies. The best would be to file the motion for new trial and then it would be to file an appeal if necessary
Best of luck
