Summary from Official Court Transcripts

JEFF STROHM

(Nextel/Sprint Cellular Communications)

Strohm is responsible for responding to legal demands that involve phone records for Sprint/Nextel.

DIRECT EXAMINATION: MS. BRAZIL:

The records reflect Murray as the subscriber for the Nextel/Sprint telephone number (702) ***-3747. The demographics for the number above are: Clark County, Las Vegas, Nevada.

Strohm explains the information contained in the records he has presented to him by Brazil. He then explains what is meant by the information presented and how it relates to Murray’s cell phone service with this particular phone number.

He states the times listed are reflective of the time zone of the location of the fielding cell phone tower. For example, if a call is made or received in Los Angeles then the corresponding time will be Pacific Standard Time. He states all of Murray’s calls listed on his documents are reflective of time based in Los Angeles.

Strohm acknowledges he has reviewed all calls or call activities made on June 25th from 7:01 a.m. to 1:08 p.m.

An outgoing call from Murray’s Sprint/Nextel cell phone occurred at 7:01 a.m. that was 25 seconds in length. This call was to (702) ***-0266. Demographics for this number are: Clark County, Las Vegas, Nevada.

An incoming call to Murray’s Sprint/Nextel cell phone occurred at 8:49 a.m. that was 53 seconds in length. This call was from (702) ***-5217. Demographics for this number are: Clark County, Las Vegas, Nevada.

An incoming call to Murray’s Sprint/Nextel cell phone occurred at 10:22 a.m. that was 111 seconds in length. This call was from (713) ***-0124. Demographics for this number are: Harris County, Houston, Texas.

An outgoing call from Murray’s Sprint/Nextel cell phone occurred at 10:34 a.m. that was 517 seconds in length. This call was to (619) ***-3233. Demographics for this number are: San Diego County, San Diego, California.

An incoming call to Murray’s Sprint/Nextel cell phone occurred at 11:26 a.m. that was 7 seconds in length. This call was from (310) ***-9566. Demographics for this number are: Los Angeles County, Inglewood, California.

An outgoing call from Murray’s Sprint/Nextel cell phone occurred at 1:08 p.m. that was 120 seconds in length. This call was to (310) ***-8070. Demographics for this number are: : Los Angeles County, Santa Monica, California.

Brazil completes her direct examination of the witness. Then Brazil asks for clarification on the incoming call at 8: 49 a.m. She comments the chart states ” 53 seconds” and below it is “48 seconds”. Strohm says there are two entries–the first entry is a routed call and the second entry is the inbound call. The two entries account for one phone call. Strohm states this is known because the times overlap. He states there is an inbound aspect but because of the overlap it is essentially one inbound phone call, just two different durations. He says the more accurate duration is 53 seconds.

CROSS-EXAMINATION: MR. CHERNOFF

Chernoff asks Strohm to explain a routed call. Strohm explains there are two examples as to what a routed call is with the example he just looked at involving “A.T.L.D.N.”. “A.T.L.D.N.” is a temporary local dialing number which is a bridge number. This type of routing occurs when someone is in an area where they otherwise cannot find phone service. The bridge number helps complete the call by connecting them to the network so they may place the call. Thus, there is a routed and inbound aspect to what is one call. He adds that the customers would not realize that the call had been routed.

Chernoff completes his cross examination. Brazil does not re-direct examine Strohm so he is excused.
