If this notebook is any visible in the trial then I don't really need to decide about -- winner well our fair.
Even if that notebook is -- admissible evidence at trial.
It's utterly irrelevant.
Who tipped off -- a winner what does that have to do the case it doesn't have any.
And to do -- well it may have to do with the admissibility I mean I don't wanna get too deep into the weeds here but an attorney you know.
Even though something may be relevant it doesn't automatically go before the jury there are certain laws of evidentiary laws.
That detail how would get before the jury.

In any case this I trust the court case a judge only rules on what he -- she has to rule on.
This is the case we're covering on the Fox News Channel.

Yes but the notebook is the issue relevant to the fox reporter.
Correct but I'm gonna go back you're right in terms of picking a fair jury these -- don't have to be something now that is discussed with -- each individual York.
How -- about this case yes parents tell us what you heard about this case and the people -- -- -- there was a notebook that was released and it says XY and -- that jurors automatically thrown off.
