Say DNA evidence in a rape case, as opposed to identification in a lineup.
Casey is not stupid. He avoided the Dover case, where a win would have been significant.
Casey was at the Dover trial, basically as a PR shill for the DI. I don't recall him being consulted by the Thomas More Law Center people, though he may have had some casual conversations with them. Mind you, I didn't develop a high regard for the TMLC crew, and they apparently weren't going to Casey for advice.
