State 4th Motion in Limine asking Court to reject efforts by Boyd to call witnesses not having personal information regarding the incident on November 12, 2022 and not allow him to call witnesses to testify regarding self-defense law
It’s a little funny, perhaps reflective of John M. Pierce’s level of incompetence in trying to practice law in Montana, that 81 witnesses are listed and I (Robert Baty) am among them!
State Motion to Compel Boyd to provide contact information for all the witnesses he plans to call at trial and his photographic evidence of the crime scene and other documents.
This morning, March 5, 2023, Jesse was back to preaching in his house church and, again, could not help but use his Montana problem as a theme to express his anti-government views and longing for the Confederate States of America. Jesse did not appear to make any comments about what was actually going on with the case from a legal standpoint.
The really big and much-anticipated event remains the Court’s ruling on Boyd’s Amended Motion to Dismiss. The State filed its response and Boyd filed his reply to that. So, the issue is ripe for the Court to rule on whether or not the charges will be dismissed.
Update March 9, 2023
As noted above, the State filed it’s 4th Motion in Limine asking that the defendants be barred from calling witnesses that had no personal knowledge of the incident on November 12, 2022 and from calling witnesses to testify as to the law regarding the “self-defense” defense.
The defendants have filed their response to the motion and the State has replied to that response. Those documents will be posted as they become available.
Update March 10, 2023
The State has now filed its 5th Motion in Limine. The document will be posted when it becomes available.
