*** The lightning roused Larry from a deep sleep, he craned his neck to see what was going on for a few moments as the bridge was going up in flames, and he snapped awake when he saw what appeared to be a [[spoiler: person flying]], immediately sat up, and sketched the sketch. Not only is it incredibly easy to assume that Larry has misrepresented or inadequately explained his testimony due to having just woke up (and being Larry), it's not that hard to think of a dozen ways those events could have occured that match his testimony as-is.

*** '''''HOLD IT!''''' If it were a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thundersnow thundersnow]], there were probably ''several'' lightning strikes with associated thunder. He woke up at one of the earlier strikes and just happened to be looking outside to see the bolt that struck the bridge.

** "Why do you look so tired all the time, adopted son?" "Well, I keep having these nightmares where I'm in the elevator and I throw a gun and I hear it go off, and then I hear a man scream..." "... They're just nightmares. Don't let them bother you."


Added DiffLines:

** That was probably the reason they attempted to channel Gregory's spirit, hoping for some lead they wouldn't be able to find any other way.

** Or his cravat? There's probably a reason he carries at least a yard of clean cloth on him at all times...

*** Seconding the above. His sanity was already hanging on the thread that his nightmares were just dreams. If he'd been shown proof that he really did fire the bullet that killed his father, it would destroy him. He'd either go insane or plunge right over the DespairEventHorizon; even if he recovered from those (not likely given how reluctant he is to open up to people and accept help), he'd never set foot in a courthouse again. And can you imagine how terrifying/heartbreaking ''Miles Edgeworth'''s [[FreakOut breakdown]] would have been?


Added DiffLines:

** They probably hoped for an answer besides "it's the guy you already thought it was." They probably wanted to hear that it was some option they'd never considered, or someone who entered the elevator after it was opened, rather than some answer that anyone could have made up. Since it was the obvious answer, they figured it was worthless testimony and a waste of everyone's time.

*** But Morgan could have killed two bird with one stone if she had Phoenix killed and had Maya take the fall. If that happened, almost nobody would be able to save Maya at that point, since the most competent people would either be dead or prosecutors, thus unable to defend her.

*** Even when he hasn't even met him? Remember, Godot was [[spoiler:stuck on the other side of the Inner Temple at the time, so Edgeworth had no way to meet him and realize that he was Armando.

** If I'm remembering correctly, the letter wasn't written by Hammond. It was written by either Yogi or von Karma. The only reason that he got that letter was so that he could be framed for Hammond's murder.

**** '''OBJECTION!!!''' There was no way von Karma could have known that he passed out from oxygen deprivation! ::Zooms in:: HE DIDN'T ENTER THE ELEVATOR UNTIL THEY WERE ALL UNCONSCIOUS!

*** My impression is that the insanity plea was that Yanni could not have been the murderer because he became too insane to even hold the gun.

Added DiffLines:

*** That's not how insanity pleas work. Not guilty by reason of insanity means the defense admits the crime, but argues that there was a lack of "guilty mind" - that is, that the defendant was of unsound mind; lacking control of self, the defendant committed an unintended crime. In other words, Yanni Yogi's insanity plea meant his defense claimed he did shoot Gregory, but was too crazy by lack of oxygen to be held accountable for it.
