Today the defense called a memory expert who famously exposed the fake Satanic abuse cases in California in the 80s.  Dr Elizabeth Loftus is a cognitive psychologist who argues that people can become more vulnerable to post event information like media reports and questioning by police that will effect and shape their recollections of the events.  Her testimony includes explanations that could undermine the veracity of some of the accusers accounts.   It's a very controversial theory . . . but so was prior testimony from Dr. Barbara Ziv.  We give you the audio of both so you can decide for yourself.

There was also a kerfuffle in court today over defense attorney Donna Rotunno's interview with the New York Times podcast, The Daily, where she made some controversial remarks about the complainants.  Have a listen to hear her explanation for seemingly disobeying the judges orders.
