Mary’s Mad (Again): “Grow Up Gridley!’

Mary Souza, who ignored the fact that one of her Team Brannon playmates got kicked out of the courtroom earlier this week, vents her spleen on City Attorney Mike Gridley in her latest OpenCDA.com screed. Seems Mary's perturbed re: an exchange between Gridley and Team Brannon attorney Starr Kelso Thursday. Kelso, who has annoyed everyone in the courtroom but Mary & his fanatic flock with his tedious and sometimes pointless questions, apparently handed Gridley some papers on the witness stand. And those papers fell to the ground. Mary claims Gridley knocked them off the stand. Then, as you read on Hucks Online, Kelso claims that Gridley said something to the effect that he could shove additional papers where the sun doesn't shine. Kelso whined to Judge Charles Hosack re: what Gridley might or might not have said. And the judge (probably rolling his eyes) pointed out that he realized there was no love lost between the two men ... and that what Gridley may or may not have said was irrelevant. He then ordered Kelso to proceed. You can have Mary's outraged version of the events here.

Question: What do you make of this little tempest?
