    Hooray for common sense

    The press has already got the transcript. They don't care about what is in the video, they just want to create a click frenzy / jump in viewers, because they have a "never before seen" video of a dead personality.

    RIP Steve.

    A jury decides standing???

    In every case I've read about in several decades of paying attention, the question of standing is one of law, to be decided by a judge, and appealed if someone doesn't like the answer.

    Jurors are deciders of fact, not of how the law applies.*


    * With the notable exception that if a jury decides the law is draconian, or misapplied, they can refuse to convict and there's an end on't.
