Quote oltllover: I agree Liz had no choice if she was subpoenaed, but I don't understand why Diane didn't question her all she had to do was ask Liz if she thought that past bad deeds justified taking away a child and since Liz has been no angel and certainly would never want her children taken away from her because of a long list of things she has done then her answer would be NO a mother should have her child and that would be be that.
The whole thing was messed up! Diane would have most definitely been able to cross examine Liz after Alexis was through. And how in the heck did Alexis get to call Maxie to the stand? Maxie would have had to testify and Alexis could have cross examined her at that time. It was completely ridiculous! I remember years ago, I forget the exact case, but Sonny was on trial for murder or attempted murder, and Ric was the DA, and called Sonny to the stand! A defendant in a trial is in no way compelled to testify! Now I know this is a custody hearing and not a trial, but I do not believe Alexis would be allowed to call Maxie as a witness. Just completely off the wall! Plus does Alexis know about Logan? I hope Diane does!!
