    Just one thing, regarding Stirba's claims that Mr. Kennedy said things that were false. At the sentencing, one of the attorneys on Stirba's team got up and said several things that were false, some of which he admitted were false, when confronted with that. For one example, he claimed that two of those victims the case was built around, whom the prosecution was seeking compensation for, had provided absolutely no documentation proving that the expense of treatment for the drug addiction they had developed, due to their treatment by Dr. MacKay, when both had provided an abundance of documentation. It seemed that the defense team felt they were entitled to say anything they pleased, no matter how false, but that the prosecution should only be able to say things that had been approved by the defense. It was really very unbecoming of well-educated, adult men.
