LATEST: Music producer Phil Spector's defence team will be unable to use the 'diary-like' writings that shooting victim Lana Clarkson kept on her computer as evidence in court.
Spector's lawyers had suggested the writings showed Clarkson was having suicidal thoughts and visions - but Los Angeles County Court Judge Paul Fidler disagreed.
Having read the writings over the weekend (02/03Jun07), Fidler yesterday (04Jun07) told the court the writings were completely removed from what the defence had described them as.
He told the hearing yesterday (04Jun07), "I don't consider anything in this particular document to be significant."
One section described shadows passing a window, which the defence had described as a ''vision'.
Spector's lawyers had intended to use the writings when questioning coroner Dr. Louise Pena, who concluded Clarkson did not pull the trigger of the gun that killed her.
But Fidler ruled the writings cannot be used to cross-examine the coroner, although he will consider allowing the defence to use the document when calling its own experts.
Spector is accused of the fatal shooting of Clarkson at his home in Alhambra, California in February 2003. He has pleaded not guilty and claims Clarkson committed suicide.
The trial continues.
