Judge Stan Strickland Former Casey Anthony Judge Reacts to Verict, Trial, Jury *Full Interview*

Former Casey Anthony Case Judge Talks Trial, Jury, and Verdict.

Judge Stan Strickland is no stranger to the Casey Anthony saga. During one of Anthony's bond hearings in 2008, Judge Strickland stated "It appears the truth and Ms. Anthony are strangers." Little did Strickland know how much indeed that statement rang true.
On April 16, 2010, just before close of business, Anthony's defense filed a motion for removal of Judge Strickland.
On April 19, 2010, Judge Strickland granted the motion, with biting remarks.

A Look Back:  April 26, 2010
Casey Anthony Defense Files Motion  To Remove Judge Strickland From Case

Minutes before the close of business, Casey Anthony’s defense team filed a motion Friday, April 16, 2010, to have Judge Stan Strickland removed from the case.
Jose Baez claims that Strickland should be removed because he has had contact with a blogger, who covers the Casey case, named Dave Knechel, otherwise known as Marinade Dave.

MOTION: READ:  Motion To Remove Judge From Case

The blogger claims he told defense investigators on April 11 that he received a phone call from Judge Strickland when Knechel was sick, wishing him well.
Casey’s defense team claims Knechel developed a personal relationship with Strickland, and that because of headlines on Knechel's blog like "Casey Anthony Must Die", Knechel is biased towards the prosecution, and Strickland supports his views.
But Knechel disagrees. "I think he's a very fair judge. If the judge can sit down and read a newspaper, if he can watch the news on TV, why can't he read a blog?" asked Knechel.
The defense cited the incidents with Knechel and called Judge Strickland a publicity hound who's concerned about politics, and made a comment about not wanting to set a trial date until after his re-election.

Knechel said he thinks the defense is taking a big risk by filing the motion to remove Judge Strickland. "They're putting their hands in hot water. They don't know what the outcome is going to be. Who will the next judge be?"

Legal Analyst Bill Sheaffer agrees, saying the motion is a mistake because Knechel is not directly involved in the case. Sheaffer continued by saying the defense could not ask for a more impartial, patient, or fair judge.

UPDATE:  April 19, 2010:

After two years presiding over the Casey Anthony case, Judge Stan Strickland stepped down today, Monday, April 19, 2010,  but not before leaving the defense team some choice, cutting words in his decision to do so.

In his reply to a motion defense filed Friday April 16, 2010, Judge Strickland entered his decision granting the motion today on the grounds not that his comments had been inappropriate, but that after the accusation, any further decisions he makes would "generate renewed allegations of bias."
READ: Motion Granted To Remove Judge Strickland From Anthony Case 

In the realm of court documents, which could often be described as dry or even dull, Judge Strickland's biting remarks and sharp sarcasm stand out:

"The issue before the Court presently is the Defendant's Motion to Disqualify the undersigned filed (courageously!) at 4:48 p.m. on Friday afternoon, April 16, 2010," Strickland wrote. "Obviously the defense counsel's intent was to maximize exposure, and minimize or delay any response."
 "The court does confess to a general affability that, at times, seems to belie the importance of the task at hand. Until now, enjoying my work has never seemed to pose a problem."

"At its core, defense counsel's motion accuses the undersigned [Strickland] of being a 'self-aggrandizing media hound.' Indeed. The irony is rich. Motion granted."
