Yogurt Shop Murders: another pretrial hearing tomorrow

The docket lists tomorrow's hearing as joint for Michael Scott and Robert Springsteen, but I won't be surprised if Scott is the only defendant present. One of Springsteen's attorneys, Joe James Sawyer, has no concrete answer for why these hearings continue to be scheduled for both Scott and Springsteen but don't include his client and therefore Sawyer himself (on the record or really any more than a spectator) as a voice in court.

At the end of the last hearing, Sawyer told reporters that the judge has the ultimate say in determining which defendants actually appear at hearings: Sawyer can only participate in the hearing if his client is present.
