**** Larry had a late birthday. I think there was this article about at what age are Japanese children allowed to attend school.

*** Plus the fact that he already had reason to dislike Phoenix, as he spelled out during the final trial. He helped the woman who killed him, however innocently he did it.

** This probably won't raise your opinion of the prosecutor's office, but I recall that Edgeworth stated very clearly that the victim was considered "legally dead." Given the rather shitty justice system at play here, they would probably be willing to accept that, even though the person was not "actually dead", they were still "legally dead", and thus the act committed was still "legally murder". Or something like that.

** Well, Dahlia claimed that she was pushed into the river by her "kidnapper" and that everything else happened as was determined in the trial that convicted Terry. Her existence, as we learned, is not proof that Terry was innocent of kidnapping and all that. He probably should have been retrialed and convicted for just attempted murder instead, but that's where the shitty law system comes in.

*** As for why [[spoiler:Maggey]] is still wearing her waitress outfit in detention, the game over dialogue (when your client gets a guilty verdict) states that the guilty party is supposed to be held trial at a higher court a month from the date the verdict was handed down. [[spoiler:Maggey]] was probably still in detention because she was awaiting her next trial.

****...except Misty was kind of missing and Maya was ''17''. Phoenix was the closest adult to her and worked in the same office, so he blames him for it.

* Okay, maybe I'm just being dumb, but in Case 3-1, there's an offhand line from Mia, regarding Phoenix, saying "that P on his sweater doesn't stand for Phoenix!" when she's mad at him for lying. Was this just GettingCrapPastTheRadar and calling him a "pussy" (seeing as he was crying at the time) or something else?

*This is something that has bothered me from the very first time I played this case a few years ago. Phoenix goes to the office, and finds Mia dead, Maya crying over her body. Maya passes out, and move her body to a sofa. You hold Mia until the warmth leaves her body. You investigate her body for clues, and then when you go to call the police All of a sudden April May shows up in the hotel across the street, screaming about "OMG! A murder." Phoenix never ONCE points out the logical inconsistency of her "seeing the murder occur" and yet you're at the office for at least five to ten minutes before she draws attention to herself by screaming, yet she acts as if the murder JUST OCCURRED! And given that she's staring straight at Phoenix when she DOES call it actually makes Redd's testimony seem more accurate when he later accuses Phoenix of being the murderer! "I came into the office and immediately run into her dead body, yet the police weren't called until at least ten minutes later. Would you care to explain this?" That this time inconsistincy is never once brought up really bugs me.

*** This happens again near the end of the first day of the trial in "Turnabout Academy," so it's possible that they use that setting for anyone besides the judge, prosecutor, defense attorney or cocounsel who wants to speak without having to make up an entirely new part of the background. In the manga, you can see the defendant seat near the defense's side of the court, and in the cinematic with the "proof of friendship" in Turnbout Academy, you can see Robin and Juniper approaching the stand while Hugh is testifying.

** It's stress, most likely. Remember, Pearl's a 9-year-old kid who just spent a day trapped in a place she's never been to before, which probably isn't terribly safe, either. She's also been worried about Maya the whole time. Under the circumstances, it makes sense for her to snap at Franziska; if Pearl had run into her at any other time, she'd probably be more polite to her for the reasons you stated.
