Right away, Your Honour. On January 18th, Miss Pinkamena Diane Pie had reported that her "Super Duper Extra Secret Recipe" had been stolen from her possession. The Prosecution intends to prove that the one who had stolen this recipe was none other than the Defendant herself. There is very conclusive evidence against her. I would like to call up Detective Gumshoe to the stand for the investigation report.

Description: A delectable and sweet recipe specifically engineered to satisfy even the most bitter of sweet tooths. Has Gilda's claw marks on it.

As anyone in the court who is not legally blind can see, this recipe has been scratched up by claw marks; claw marks that belong to none other than the Defendant.

Judge !4DoxwKTFKs 892637

File: 1426904262046.gif (2.24 KB, 256x192, judge-thinking (1).gif)

So you can say for sure the first feather is Miss. Gilda's? Why can't you identify the second for sure?

Mr. Justice, the Detective has said he can confirm for certain that the scratches he found belong to the Defendant. Now, you'll have to be a bit more specific with your question, as you are attempting to lead this witness. What about the claw markings interest you?

Apollo Justice !MJ7QOwb7Ts 892665

File: 1426906332375.gif (119.04 KB, 256x192, apollo-thinks(b).gif)

Well, for starters, I'd like to know what was so specific about those scratches that lead you to be able to identify them specifically as Gilda's. What if a cat did it? What if it was magic?

Detective Gumshoe 892666

File: 1426906489143.gif (192.45 KB, 256x192, gumshoe-thinking(b).gif)

Well, at first, we didn't know they were Gilda's. Only after we examined her claws and the paper and floor did we manage to figure out that they were her's. The claws were definitely those of a griffon's, pal! There's no doubting that!

Apollo Justice !MJ7QOwb7Ts 892669

File: 1426906663569.gif (119.04 KB, 256x192, apollo-thinks(b).gif)

Detective Gumshoe 892670

File: 1426906821566.gif (92.65 KB, 256x192, gumshoe-confident(b).gif)

Well, firstly, we saw that the Defendant's claws were duller than usual, and that's a direct result of scratching! Secondly, we knew it was a griffon's because they have unique claws, easily discernible from any other types! Lastly, because her claw scratches were everywhere, the room, the safe, the recipe itself, and the recipe was found in her sack! What more could ya need?

Now, judging by the mess Gilda left, we can assume that she was searching for the recipe in her room before she finally found it there and left, yes?
>3. She was with Twilight for the majority of the day, so she was not able to watch the shop.
But that brings up a major contradiction! Pinkie Pie is not the only pony to work at Sugarcube Corner. In fact, I can name two others that would have been there:

Mr. Justice, the Cakes were downstairs in the shop. Their shop is normally very busy, and it's known to get loud in there.

There is soundproofing in the room, and both doors are soundproof! The balcony door is but a normal door, just like the one that leads into the room from the inside!

The prosecution never claimed there was or wasn't anyone who had witnessed the Defendant entering Miss Pie's room. The only times the Detective has testified about were 10:05 PM and beyond, for those are the concrete times of this case. It is currently unknown when the Defendant had snatched this secret recipe.

Anyone who may have witnessed the Defendant entering would've merely thought it was one of her friends coming to pay a visit. Miss Pie does, indeed, have a lot of friends.

Pinkie went out that day, Mr. Edgeworth. If it's a normal door, why didn't Pinkie lock it? Why would one go to such a length to protect their belongings and then not lock the door?

"If it's a normal door, why didn't Pinkie lock it?", you ask?

Have you never heard of forgetfulness? I'm quite sure you've forgotten a few rules of the courtroom since your little leisure break, Justice-Dono. Pie-dono could have simply forgotten to lock the door. She was excited to be with her friend, Twilight Sparkle, and out of excitement, left the home in a hurry.

Or better yet, what if the Defendant had broken in? Isn't that just as likely as well? After all, they had the means to find and break into a safe, breaking and entering through a locked door should be a breeze, don't you agree?

Twilight Sparkle is an organisation savant, which would have most likely resulted in her prompting Pinkie to lock the door.
COMBINING this with the fact that Twilight is Pinkie's best friend, she would have known that there would be a safe in her room - Meaning there would be next to no chance that Pinkie would forget to lock that room! She had a recipe to protect, and she would have been made damn sure about it!

Mr. Justice, the contents of your argument have changed rather wildly. I'm afraid, in this court's eyes, it is you who is making the assumptions.

You are asserting a situation where Miss Pinkie Pie is told by Twilight Sparkle to lock her doors. Why would such a situation come up? I would like you to clearly present your argument.

File: 1426913391776.gif (27.28 KB, 256x192, apollo-deskslam(a).gif)

(Here goes...)
Please recall the victim in question. Our victim is Pinkamena Diane Pie, also known as Pinkie Pie. Had Twilight Sparkle have known about the safe, she would have brought it up. Not because there was a reason to, but that's simply what kind of relationship they both have. Pinkie obviously makes a big deal out of her recipe, as evidenced by the fact that she would go to a length as to lock it in a safe - and also evidenced by the fact that there would be anyone to steal it if she hadn't have made a big deal out of it!

>Gilda Griffon

Messenger for Griffon Airways.

Gilda has no connection whatsoever with Pinkie anymore! How would she have known that there was something to steal there? Simple!
Pinkamena Diane Pie made a big deal out of it!
Are you telling me news this big wouldn't be on the forefront of Pinkie's friends' minds?!

Mr. Justice, you keep implying that Miss Pie made a "big deal" out of her secret recipe. While it is so important to her that she'd want to lock it up, why would it be on the forefront of anyone's mind? It was assumed to be safely locked away in a hidden area in her room. Miss Pie and her friends would not feel worried about the safety of the recipe, since she had locked it away.

Once more, you are asserting that Twilight Sparkle would have this on the forefront of her mind. I know there is no evidence to prove what Twilight Sparkle was truly thinking. Asking for any such evidence would be, in the words of a certain prosecutor, "foolishly foolish". Rest assured, I am no foolhardy man.

There is, however, one way that Gilda may have known of the existence of this recipe, without Miss Pie telling one and all of its existence. There is a certain mare that could have leaked this info.

It's quite simple, Your Honour. Miss Pie has a friend by the name of Rainbow Dash. Surely, you remember her. Not only was Rainbow Dash a friend of Miss Pie, however, Rainbow Dash was once also a friend of the Defendant's before the victim had gotten inbetween them.

However, that was a very long time ago. It is not unreasonable to think, that either A) Rainbow Dash had wanted to try to reconcile with Gilda Griffon, or B) That this secret recipe has existed for quite some time, and Rainbow Dash had leaked it to her for no reason other than that she was a trusted friend.

Rainbow Dash could be our clue into getting further into this trial.

From what I hear, sweets aren't that common in the Griffon Kingdom. If Gilda had the recipe, she could make tons and tons of money.

Hold It!
There's something wrong with that. Pinkie's recipe was "Super Duper Extra Secret". If all Gilda wanted was a recipe for sweets, why wouldn't she have just looked for a normal recipe? Why instantly go a step further and try steal one, particularly one that was that secret?

File: 1426919204362.png (747.7 KB, 1280x720, Rainbow_Dash_speaking_to_Rarit…)

She took Pinkie Pie for a weakling and thought it'd be the best to just crush her into submission and steal the formula from her. That, and, I guess, not many griffons liked the basic sweets, but I know all griffons love this one recipe, and I don't know why. I don't know what's in it.

Still at the lawyer thing, Nick? Man, when are you gonna learn that you are never going to find true justice or truth. Not when the Feminists are doing favors for judges, getting them to rule the way that benefits those without the ancestor gene in their blood. Ever wonder why only men carry genes from the first humans, but women don't? Three words: They're not human.

I'd say get out while you can. Coming back was only a mistake. Fight the good fight on your own terms, not theirs. Gotta go now. The Feminist Anti-Anti-Feminist activists are likely on my trail now that I have left my room.

We found a boy in the lobby that seems to match the description the blind pony has given us. It seems that some other boy with glasses was seen dragging him along by the collar of his shirt when the boy collapsed and started clutching his chest. The ambulance is on its way, but a few doctors who were waiting for their trial to begin have already examined the child and pronounced him dead. The boy with the glasses escaped us after running around the building for a while.

Edgeworth, do you not know who Rainbow Dash is? Do I even need to remind you that she has done something similar to this before?

She is known for her love of sweets. She, like many other ponies, adore the taste of Pinkie Pie's pastries! Recall that there was one day, where Rainbow Dash was on a train and she left behind a feather, leaving her guilty of a crime of eating sweets that others have made!

The Defense proposes the following:

Rainbow Dash and Gilda had made their amends one day. The two of them talked about the recipe, and then hatched a plan to find it and take it for themselves! Make all the goods they can with money too! In their scramble to do so, one night, they ended up leaving their feathers behind on the crime scene!

Mr. Justice, did you happen to doze off in the middle of yesterday's trial?

The Witness had said herself in court that she
"used to think she was so awesome and cool, so we'd hang out together and tell each other everything"

She had quite clearly spoken of this recipe to Gilda long before they had stopped being friends.

Furthermore, I can't believe you had cast doubt on the witness' friendship with the victim! Not only is she an Element of Harmony, but she has shown time and time again that she appreciates the friendship she shares with the Pink pony. To direct you to yesterday's testimony, "Gilda kept blaming Pinkie for everything and calling her a "dweeb", and ooh did it make my blood boil!" Clearly, she did not approve of Gilda's actions.

Why, all things considered, I should cast doubt on your badge's legitimacy!

Thank you for pointing out that huge contradiction, Mr. Edgeworth. Rainbow Dash's loyalty far exceeds one of normal friendship - Which brings us to the contradiction! Rainbow Dash had a massive window of time to warn Pinkie Pie about the crime! Why wasn't she warned at all if the friendship she shares with Pinkie is appreciated so much?

Just like your mentor, your logic is always flawed. Mr. Justice, you forget one thing! Rainbow Dash is merely accused of being an accomplice, and from what I've seen, she's done a rather fine job of rebutting you. There is absolutely no proof she had any contact with the accused since they parted ways! Nowhere in her testimony did she say that she had resumed talks with the defendant!

It is a common known fact that Gilda had left Ponyville, never to return again! Rainbow Dash had no reason to tell Pinkie about Gilda's intentions, for she had not been seen in Ponyville since that fateful day that the two went their separate ways!

Rainbow Dash had clearly known about the recipe and the safe, but, she had only spoke of the recipe to Gilda! She did not mention a safe! Pinkie Pie had the safe hidden to keep it protected! You act as if she revealed everything to Gilda, yet you have no proof!

Your entire argument is based on the single assumption that Rainbow Dash has never seen nor spoken to Gilda since the incident that resulted in them splitting up.

As it has already been proved earlier in the trial, this underfeather was in fact Rainbow Dash's.
And at the scene of the crime, we have this feather, that is in fact Gilda's.
And the Defense has proof these two feathers were dropped at exactly the same time, proving Gilda and Rainbow Dash were in contact with each other!

>4. I suppose she could have done a bit of cleaning recently...
>10. Miss Pie's room was an absolute mess, bearing stains of sweets, scratches, and even burn marks. Someone was trying hard to find the safe.

There's no way this single feather would have been left behind if Pinkie Pie was cleaning her room - it was right in front of the doorway, an almost unmissable location for it to be noticed. However, that's not my problem. My problem is this the fact that Pinkie Pie never cleaned her room at all - It was a mess already when we got there!

So why was this single feather found at the scene instead of multiple? Simple! Rainbow simply stayed there for a while. Perhaps the duration it would require to steal a recipe?

>Why warn your friend of a threat that will never present itself? She saw no reason to do so!

This explains fully as to why she never explained to Pinkie! Because if she did, they'd be found out! Rainbow and Gilda were partners in crime! Her loyalties were placed on the other individual!

>She did not mention a safe! Pinkie Pie had the safe hidden to keep it protected! You act as if she revealed everything to Gilda, yet you have no proof!

And because of that, she knew there was no reason she had to mention anything to Pinkie nor Gilda, because she knew one fact! One thing this entire court has failed to recognise since the beginning of this trial!

There's no way that Gilda would have wanted to steal that recipe, because she is a Griffon!
>From what I hear, sweets aren't that common in the Griffon Kingdom. If Gilda had the recipe, she could make tons and tons of money.
Might I remind the court as to where this statement came from? Rainbow Dash herself! But this testimony is completely contradictory!

Griffons are carnivores - There's no way for the Griffon Kingdom to love sweets, because there's no way they can! Griffons do not have the sufficient biological processes to taste nor digest sweets in any way! Gilda would not have had any motive to steal the sweets, aside from her friendship with one pony!

The only reason why Gilda would want that recipe is for her friend, Rainbow Dash!
>She is known for her love of sweets. She, like many other ponies, adore the taste of Pinkie Pie's pastries! Recall that there was one day, where Rainbow Dash was on a train and she left behind a feather, leaving her guilty of a crime of eating sweets that others have made!

But why would she want to do that? Rainbow Dash and her aren't in connection any more.
Unless they actually were!
The Defense argues that Rainbow Dash coerced and aided Gilda into thievery! The fact that Gilda wanted them in the first place is proof of this!

Mr. Justice, you claim that the only possibility is that the reason the feather is there is because she had dropped it there whilst doing the crime. The Prosecution would like to present to the court a new possibility, following the Defense's logic.

It was, indeed, dropped that night. However, the reason why that feather has been dropped is because..

The signs of a struggle are everywhere in the room. The scratches on the floor? Clear signs that the Defendant was trying to attack somebody. Who was that somebody, you may ask? Why, it was Rainbow Dash!

The Defense has proven one thing, that it was nigh impossible for Gilda to have infiltrated the room without being noticed by somebody.

>Can you say in good heart that there would have been any way for Gilda Griffon to break in without being seen?! Because the answer to that question is NO!

Using your logic, it's quite clear to see what truly happened.

>Gilda had infiltrated the Bakery

>Rainbow Dash had noticed this intrusion, as she was flying in the skies of Ponyville
>Rainbow Dash went in to see what was happening, since it was clearly suspicious
>As a result, she and Gilda had crossed paths once more, the first time in a very long time!
>Rainbow Dash had done all that she could to stop Gilda Griffon, and the claw marks and feathers show it!

As for why Rainbow Dash's feathers were not truly scattered, two possibilities arise.
The first, is that the scene was altered or forged to have the pastry stains. The second, and more likely possibility, is that Rainbow Dash seldom needed to visit Pinkie Pie's room itself. She simply visited the downstairs bakery and waited for Pinkie there, if not meeting her somewhere in Ponyville!

Lastly, you claim Griffons can not love sweets, yet there are many examples of Griffons that do, in fact, indulge in sweets! It may seem contradictory, yet the facts can not be disputed! There is even a Griffon Chef that makes pastries for a living!

You have proven nothing!

I think your thinking's a bit off here. Besides the fact that, like that other lawyer said, I usually meet Pinkie downstairs, I'm sure I've dropped more than one feather up there. I said I thought it was odd that they only found one. In fact, going by what you've said, there'd actually be two reasons why it's odd.

First off, if I was in the room for an extended period of time, wouldn't that mean I was more likely to drop more feathers?

More importantly, though, why would I go through the trouble of getting rid of my own feathers? Like I said, I'm over there all the time, and who knows how many feathers I've lost around that place.

It seems to me like you're looking for someone else with feathers all right. But it'd have to be someone who knew their feathers would be out of place and without a lot of time to sort through them.

As for the other thing... I've said I'd do anything for a mug of Apple family cider. I didn't mean literally anything. People say stuff like that all the time. It's called hypo... hypa...

... Twilight probably knows.

Both the Defense and the Prosecution have been running wildly, objecting to one another's statements. Yet we still keep finding ourselves back at square one. Maybe we've taken a step in the right direction thanks to Edgeworth, but, it's not gonna take us far.

What I'm asking is, can you suspend proceedings for the day to allow both sides to further investigate into the matter?

I would like to end things by asking what is the one thing that would cause Rainbow to turn on a friend, even a old one and for Gilda not to turn over on Rainbow who was ratting her out. The reason is that both would rather sit a year in jail then admit to what they had actually been doing. There is only one reason they would clean up the mess and believe the room was clean.

I suspect that the reason those two were in the bedroom was because they were in a loving way, both being so embarassed that they would say anything to not be found out.

Indeed. The Prosecution believes that the Defense's latest theory comes without any evidence to back it, as there is nearly nothing in the testimony or evidence that points to such a... lewd act being performed at the scene of the crime.

It is true that my Theroy may seem strange, it is not as impossible as the Proscution assertion that Rainbow was able to defeat a gryphon in a fight without drawing any blood. The proscution wants you to believe that a carnavor would have been able to lose a fight against there prey... One predaotor the proscution wants you to believe that could rip open a safe.

The Prosecution presents its latest finding.

What level of blood? Such foolishness. If you must know, there was not much blood that was found, however, it was found near the doorway to the balcony and near the safe's location.

As for why the blood was never found until now, who can say? That is not my error, for that is a foolish mistake only one who is even more foolhardy than Scruffy can commit.

He accused the Prosecution's claim of the blue one fighting the Defendant to be false, due to lack of blood, and I have provided the blood. It is, indeed, impossible to have a scuffle without there being some more lucrative evidence left behind, and this is just that.

You see, you proved this evidence's legitimacy yourself. End of discussion.

The Prosecution is bending the Defense's words. We have stated here:

Henceforth, it means that no fight has occurred because no blood was drawn. If you intend to present this blood that so miraculously suddenly appears, you'll have to prove this blood is legitimate in the first place.

Her party canon was out of place, there were claw marks on the floor, the safe was broken open, a couple feathers that obviously don't belong there because Pinkie is an Earth Pony, and, after I helped out with the other investigations, we found blood stains.

How was the blood found by both the princess and the second investigation team but left of the first list of evidence.

You see, it wasn't exactly missed. It wasn't exactly deemed relevant. Rainbow Dash was bruised up and all, and we suspected it was just her blood. No one thought to use it as evidence. Then we found Gilda's blood in the mix, with her claw marks. How we missed this? I'm honestly not too sure... I was just panicking at the time of the first investigation... I'm sorry...

>It wasn't exactly deemed relevant.
At the start of the investigation it would have been obvious to see Rainbow Dash had been assaulted. This evidence would have been naturally decisive. Is that really the reason why the evidence wasn't presented?

The reason as to why the evidence wasn't presented until today's trial no longer matters. It is legal evidence. Clearly, it shows Rainbow Dash was in a fight. There is nothing that can be done to change it now. The facts are facts.

The Prosecution was not informed of this evidence by the investigative team! Up until today, all I knew was that there were claw marks and sweet stains! The true, and legitimate reason as to why the evidence was presented today is because it had to go under forensic testing!

Perhaps so, but Ms. von Karma is officially recognised as the Prosecution, meaning they are liable no matter whether or not you knew!

Do you really think that submitting imperfect evidence is the proper thing to do? What if I handed you a knife, and said there was blood on it. You'd assume it was the Victim's, naturally. But what if, the true blood belonged to the killer themselves? And, after doing an analysis, the blood did truly belong to the killer! Having imperfect evidence is a mockery of the courtroom!

Mr. Justice, you desperately keep on trying to prove this third party, yet firstly, there is no one it could possibly be, and secondly, you claim,
>There wouldn't be any bruising
Yet, that doesn't make any sense. You do realize you can get bruised by punches and other hits, correct? If I were to come across the Courtroom, I could potentially beat you to death! Griffons can make their claws into fists, and let's face it, hooves pack quite the punch as well, and for that matter, wings as well, for it is possible for pegasi to use their wings like fists and Rainbow Dash has been shown to be very athletic. It is easy to believe that Rainbow Dash could have injured Gilda just as Gilda injured her!

In other words, Mr. Justice...

Let's see.. She mostly had scratch wounds. None of them were really deep, but those claws can really cut. She also had a bruise on her face. She was only bleeding a little bit, not too badly. Pinkie and I wrapped up her wounds and laid her down before doing anything else.

Honestly, I didn't even think of that. Pinkie was just my friend, and you know, she just got robbed. I'd want to be there to keep her company and support her. This recipe was important to her, so she was obviously a bit upset. Pinkie really wanted to just, be there, so I stayed with her.

I sure as heck didn't see anything, and I'm guessing no one else did either, or else it would have been said in court.. right? I mean.. I don't know for sure, but that's the only thing that seems likely. Through some luck... She must have just been able to get away... I really can't tell you anything definite, Mr. Attorney.

I was panicking! I really wasn't thinking clearly and I was just so worried! Rainbow was already hurt, I didn't want anyone else to be! I didn't want anything bad to happen, so I knew if I just used that spell, things should all be better! And hey, I was right! Maybe there were things I could have done better, but the end justified the means! Gilda flew off, probably back to her apartment, where she was promptly arrested, and Pinkie and I ended up being okay!

I think they got them confused because I fired my spell while standing right next to the moved Party Cannon. I really don't know why they didn't listen. Arrogance? Laziness? I really can't say for sure, but they said "It's all under control" and dismissed it.

You still answered it anyways. Nice job hot shot. Anyways, I know exactly where you're going with this. If the doors were locked, that means Gilda had to break in and that would totally be noticeable.

It's true. I did tell Pinkie to lock her doors, and I did make sure that she locked them. It's just common safety! I always lock my doors to prevent any unwanted visitors. Though, I don't know how well those dungeon doors will hold up against beings from Tartarus.

Aaaanyways, it's pretty easy to break in, for a Griffon, I'd think. All Gilda would have to do is stick her claw into the keyhole one way or another, kinda like those pins in those spy action novels I read that one time.

No one would see this, though. I mean, the shop was really busy that night, I remember it well, but they had room for everypony nonetheless. So, no one would be outside to witness Gilda coming in, at least, the way I see it.

(I should totally have done more as a lawyer in Equestria..)

Now this, this is grasping, Mr. Justice. You see, in this photograph, we see the doors open. Of course we wouldn't see a keyhole of any sorts when the doors are open.

That being said, it is safe to assume that this door lacks a keyhole all together. Ergo, Pinkie Pie simply used a traditional lock on the doors, to make sure that you can't get in.

Apollo Justice !MJ7QOwb7Ts 897030

File: 1429335485397.gif (55.72 KB, 256x192, apollo-shakes.gif)

Then that'd make even less sense. If the lock was on the inside, then Gilda has less way to get in, and if it was on the outside it would be a gigantic hassle to get the door unlocked again.

Apollo Justice !MJ7QOwb7Ts 897031

File: 1429335549687.gif (163 KB, 256x192, apollo-normal(b).gif)

It'd be a good bet to assume the only way to unlock this door is for it to be unlocked from the inside, which gives us the question:
How did Gilda even get in, then?

I'm afraid not, Mr. Birdman.

Very well then. You see, Pinkie Pie is the foal sitter for Mr. and Mrs. Cake's children. They're quite fond of Pinkie Pie. What I am theorizing right now, is that, while the Cakes were busy, and Pinkie and Twilight were out, the troublesome little children managed to escape out of their crib and unlock the doors to Pinkie's room and balcony. They probably have spent many times together in her room, meaning, they would like to play in the room. So, they unlocked the doors, including the balcony door, and there you have it.

It's quite true, Your Honour. One of the twins is a baby unicorn, with massive magical potential. It's quite shocking, really, how a baby can tap into that. Being a little youngling, they still don't quite know that you really shouldn't break into locked rooms.

What, and your assertion of a random magical third party is more likely?

Yes, there are two doors at the balcony, for it is a double door, and one at the other side of the room, to enter from inside the home. Nothing is wrong with that.

Apollo Justice !MJ7QOwb7Ts 897052

File: 1429336599016.gif (119.04 KB, 256x192, apollo-thinks(b).gif)

There are, in fact, two entrances to Pinkie Pie's room, and Twilight made sure Pinkie locked BOTH entrances. This means the twins wouldn't have been able to get into Pinkie's room, which brings us back to the one door to the balcony.

All her doors were locked, yes, and what of it? That doesn't do away with the likely-hood of the twins being able to break and enter through the first door. It was never stated whether or not the baby's doors were locked. In fact, they probably weren't locked, meaning they could easily crawl out at will, and enter in.

No, Mr. Edgeworth. The Cake twins wouldn't have been able to unlock those doors, either. Can you remember why the first set of doors were a dead end for Gilda? You'd have to pass by the Cakes before you got there, meaning they would have been seen.

Every single piece of evidence in the court record can be directly linked back to Spike the Dragon. He has a motive - he was greedy for the sweets that Pinkie no doubt makes for them, he had the means as he would have known the layout of Pinkie Pie's room and snuck in without anyone knowing, and he has no alibi for the night of the crime as Twilight had no idea of his whereabouts on the night of the crime.

You say this is all Spike's doing, yet, you forget one thing. The claw marks don't match up! For one, Spike would have had no way of knowing the combination for the safe. Secondly, he probably wouldn't have been allowed to go into Pinkie's room, since he'd have to walk through the front door. Most families don't let you visit a room that belongs to someone who isn't home. That's breaking privacy, Mr. Justice. Thirdly, the claw markings, while they are indeed, claws, and Spike does, in fact, have claws, griffon claws are very distinct and discernible from every other type of claw. Not to mention, Gilda was confirmed to be the owner of the claw markings and blood found! There would have been no reason for the fight, if Gilda left empty handed. There would have been no reason for her to return, if she was empty handed.

There are too many inconsistencies, Mr. Justice. I'm afraid none of the evidence points to Spike.
