II. Official Answers to Questions Posted to the Listserv – Week 4
(Wk1 – Q1, 2; Wk2 – Q3; Wk3 – Q4)
Q. 5, Feb. 6: When was exhibit 1 (screenshot of Facebook post) taken? We know
that the picture was posted three hours ago, but three hours from when? This
information is crucial to figuring out the timeline of the case.
A. The information on screenshot is all we know.
Q.6 Feb 9: Can you please help with the pronunciation of both “Rohypnol" and
“Kannan." Is it "Roof-i-nol” or "Roo-hip-nol” and “Cannon”?
A: Rohypnol is pronounced: ro hip nul. Teams should ask Witness Kannan how he
or she pronounces his or her last name name: KAYnan or Canon?
Q.7 Feb 10: The name of the Facebook page that Bobby mentions he controls in
his affidavit is called "Raider Central", whereas the screenshot shows the Rowe
page as "Rowe Raiders". Is this accurate?
A. As in Q5, the information on the screenshot is all we know.
Q.8 Feb 10: Is it permissible to bring copies of witness statements that have
been pre-numbered "p.1," "p.2," and so on, of some witness's statement without
violating the rules, or must the direct/cross-examining attorney make reference
to the page number on the statement as it falls in the case/problem--i.e. "I
refer you to p. 26 of your witness statement" (when in fact Bobby's statement
is only six pages long)?
A. No. In an effort to keep all teams and judges on the same page, students
should refer to the pagination in the case materials.
