Jurors, Goldman said, also did not hear about certain pieces of evidence as prosecutors chose not to present some witnesses.

The civil case two years later “had the benefit of hindsight,” she said, as well as the addition of new evidence. »

Doctors agree that Chris has progressed beyond a vegetative state, to a hazy realm known as minimal consciousness.

Rather than put them to sleep, both Ambien and its generic twin, zolpidem, appear to awaken at least some of them.
