Law of Primacy - Bill Campbell Trial

The AJC reports here of the opening witness at the Bill Campbell trial.  The former Atlanta mayor was probably expecting this to be one the worst days of his trial as most advocates adhere to the law of primacy and recency and thus present their best evidence first and last.  Surprisingly, it sounds like this wasn't the case for Bill Campbell, as the AJC reports that the opening witness "seemed to actually help the defense more than prosecutors."  One has to wonder if the prosecution has an unusual strategy or if this really was their best evidence.
