The first day went well.

The eye witness changed their version of events from their original evidence to the evidence that we needed, so the substantive case for the employer essentially fell apart at this point.

Other witnesses, who in their witness statements voiced some strong statements either retracted those statements, or toned them down, or simply didn’t pursue them at all.

Overall, we came out ahead. Given that at the beginning of the day, this was slated to be a difficult day on the facts [due to the eye witness] by the end of it, we were comfortably ahead on points.

Today [day 2] is the procedural side of things. This was always the stronger element of our case as things went pretty badly wrong from the very start and deteriorated from there. We have plenty of damaging evidence to present today and unless the witnesses can provide explanations derived from god, things will turn sticky for them.
