After losing their Chef at the mansion, Williams says the McDonnells hired his, but he called dibbs on Thanksgiving and Christmas

Rich people's problems.

So Williams is claiming his relationship with the McDonnels was strictly business and that there was no funny business going on between him and Mrs McD?

Meh, so much for salacious details.

The Rolex story and the "Buy my kid a car" thing were pretty annoying on their own I can see why a Judge might want to call it an early day.

Is a comment like that grounds for an appeal after conviction?

You know, like

General Melchett: Before we sentence the deceased, I mean defendant, I think we had better hear from the prosecution.

The only thing I can think of is the defense can claim that the judge improperly commented on evidence, but it would have to be considered "reversible error."  With the weight of the evidence against them, I doubt they'll convince the appellate court of anything.

You can't tell from the tweets whether he said this in the presence of the jury, either.  I've actually heard judges say things like this before, but it's not really a comment on either side.  It usually just means that the testimony has been going on for a while, and the judge is just literally tired dealing with the trial that day and/or they have other matters that need their attention in other cases.

I'm so confused. Who is Becca Mitchell? Are these just random people's twitter feeds? This is an article? What is happening? I'm so very scared.

That's not also how Tweets work.

They might well try it, but they'd seem to have a better shot if he had specified any more of this what.

NewsChannel 3's Jackie Morlock has been covering this story all week - she will be back inside the court room today.

Does she get in and out of the court room through a series of tunnels perhaps?

Ha ha.  Yeah, I'm sure your comprehensive plan that came in at less than 2,940 characters was the bees knees.
