11:34AM Thomas cross examines.

Thomas says many different ways to say cool. Tries different intonations for witness.

Cool means a lot of different things like pivot? No I wouldn't say pivot.

Cool might mean different things? "Well it also means temperature," says witness

RC 12 referred to by Thomas. Which is first conversation?

Thomas says cool can mean many different things.

You eliminated many different exchanges? No that's not true.

Witness says let me clarify something. In Concordance, I can run a search and sort them chronologically to see if something was in between. I know when we isolated this one, anything going on between these 2 people is reflected in this exhibit.

Thomas says you can't see who is being communicated before and after that? Witness says I can.

Thomas says but jury can't? Witness says I can tell jury that there wasn't anything before and after.

Witness says this document does not reflect if for example he asked to pick up his dry cleaning.

Thomas says you are determining what is important? Correct.

Thomas says there may have been other things going on? Not in terms of conversation.
