If that's the case, then we can't say anything about what or why Das ruled the way we did.
And this whole second issue, of Braun's name being in the books of Bosch is also a leaked story. Nothing has been officially released. We have not seen the actual records. All we have is what respectable reporters have said they have seen in those records. That's exactly what we have in the Das case. We have two reports, from two different reporters, who claimed they have read the actual report.
If we need the actual reports officially released before we believe anything, then we would believe practically nothing these days.
You're being pedantic. I've read about 5 different leaked versions of how the sample was stored. We need Das' actual report in order to understand his argument and how he specifically arrived at his conclusion which is a central issue being argued.
