Slate.com reports that a Nebraska district judge granted a motion by defense attorneys to bar the use of the words “rape”, “sexual assault”, “victim”, “assailant”, and “sexual assault kit” from the trial of Pamir Safi - accused of raping Tory Bowen in October 2004.
Dahlia Lithwick writes, “The result is that the defense and the prosecution are both left to use the same word—‘sex’ - to describe either forcible sexual assault, or benign consensual intercourse. As for the jurors, they'll just have to read the witnesses' eyebrows to sort out the difference."
