Should we list trials where the verdict was not a complete acquittal as "Split decision"? For example, Lana Skye admitted to forging evidence in her trial, so she got a not guilty verdict in regards to murder, but got a guilty verdict in regards to evidence forgery. Machi Tobaye got a Not Guilty verdict in regards to murder, but confessed to smuggling and therefore took a guilty verdict for that. I would not call these trials complete victories.

- This is not how trials work. Lana's trial was for the murder of Goodman, and Machi's trial was for the murder of LeTouse. They admitted to related crimes during the trials, but the prosecution never indicted them on those charges as part of that trial, and they would have had a seperate trial afterwards to deal with the relevent charges. Trials can be for multiple charges, but there has to be some actual indiction. In Turnabout Countdown, for example, Payne actually requests that Juniper be indicted on Apollo's assult, and the court officially indicts him on the charge in the trial. Edgeworth with DL-6 was a special case, due to the statue of limitations. Plus his trial for the lake murder had technically ended already with a not guilty verdict, so they went immediately into a trial for that case straight after, which isn't the same thing.

Should Maya's membership be restored given her involvement as Phoenix's investigative partner and co-counsel in Turnabout Time Traveler?
- I don't know if she's an official member based on that. Larry just recruits her for that case. The idea seems to be that she's too busy to be actively involved in finding and participating in cases long-term. It's like if Apollo came back briefly and there happened to be a case. capefeather (talk) 01:34, November 19, 2018 (UTC)
- Oh right, I forgot that Larry was the one who brought her back for the case.
