12:03 pm
cordell in palo alto. and ladoris, what are your thoughts on this? >> reporter: well, first of all, recusal request to disqualify an entire prosecutor's office is not unprecedented. it is unusual. it won't be granted because it's based on what they claim is an inflammatory press very release, the defense is going on the offense. from the moment the charges were filed they had the client make a statement about his innocence and they are coming out with both barrels saying we're not going to take it and we're going to throw everything we have at this case. that's really what's going on. >> so what happens now because of this? >> well, what happens now is that they have a motion pending. a judge will have to decide whether or not that entire office should be recused. if it is disqualified, then the
