State v. Diamond/State v. Doyle

Posted On By

Diamond6th coverNITA’s State v. Diamond/State v. Doyle contains and interesting juxtaposition as author James H. Seckinger writes the case file with two different outcomes. The main plot focuses on a man and a woman (Mr. Diamond and Ms. Doyle) who are in an enclosed space when suddenly, shots are fired and one person dies at the scene while the other is charged with homicide. As this case is designed to be tried twice, one version depicts Mr. Diamond as the deceased while the other version depicts Ms. Doyle. Both versions contain the exact same facts with only one difference: the gender of the defendant and victim switches. The case file contains four witnesses for the State and two for the Defense as well as exhibits.
