Sadow feels he has a strong case on behalf of Stern who he points out is not a doctor and was only trying to look out for somebody that he love. Sadow said Smith was a strong-willed person who made her own calls regarding her choices. He also believes that the Bahamian nannies who said they witnessed psychiatrist Eroshevich and Stern injecting drugs into Smith gave false information and have financial motivations after they were fired.

Stern left court without commenting.
