Closing arguments, part 2: court is adjourned, kind of...

Thursday afternoon's session ends phase two of the Hutton Inquiry's "investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death of Dr David Kelly," and the afternoon transcript is now online.

But, wait! Lord Hutton still hasn't heard the testimony of Sir Kevin Tebbit of the Ministry of Defense, who was unable to attend the hearings last Thursday (Sept. 18) due to recent emergency eye surgery, and he hopes to reconvene next Tuesday, September 30 at 10:15 AM.

Here's Thursday afternoon's lineup:
Jonathan Sumption QC, Counsel for the Government
Andrew Caldecott QC, Counsel for the BBC
Heather Rogers QC, Counsel for Andrew Gilligan
James Dingemans QC, Counsel for the Inquiry
Closing statement by Lord Hutton
Analysis to come later. Oh, yeah. One more thing. Now Hutton says his report may not be out until December.
