A ham sandwich and Caitlyn Jenner are part of a new filing in the freeway shootings case.
Authorities say they used ballistic evidence gathered from the shot-up vehicles to determine the model of the gun used in some of the attacks. They say they eventually found a match when searching pawn shops in metro Phoenix.
Legal Expert James Goodnow said "In laymen's terms, Mr. Merritt's lawyer is arguing that sloppy detective work and a rushed prosecution led to a flawed and invalid Grand Jury proceeding."
Goodnow doesn't think the Judge will send the case back to the grand jury.
"Filled with attacks, inflammatory language and even a reference to 'Kaitlyn Jenner's bra size,' the reply brief reads more like an argument that would be presented to a jury than a classic legal brief," said Goodnow.
The motion also states, "The State’s failure to present all known exculpatory evidence denigrated the Defendant to nothing more than a proverbial ham sandwich. And while a ham sandwich may not have rights to due process, the Defendant most certainly does."
Goodnow says the brief is essentially a roadmap to what could happen if this case goes to a trial.
"Mr. Merritt's lawyer is trying to paint a picture of prosecutors trying to fit a round peg into a square hole," said Goodnow.
Merritt is expect in court later in February.
