Hopefully Geragos's Clue has GPS Attached

I suppose that a good defense attorney would do everything possible to benefit his client's case, even to the point of making oneself look like a fool. In which case Peterson defense counsel Mark Geragos is really going above and beyond the call of duty. His latest motion: Exclude all GPS data from the tracker placed on Scott Peterson's car during the investigation because GPS is not scientifically accepted as reliable.

I'll stop laughing any minute now.

Note to Mr. Geragos: Not only have there been numerous trials that have accepted GPS data as reliable, but there are also thousands of drivers, hikers, and civilian and military pilots who swear by the technology. Heck, there would even be hundreds of Iraqi soldiers who would attest to the effectiveness of GPS-guided munitions if only, well, GPS-guided munitions weren't so effective.
