If Virgilia had said this in red before the entire court, it might have worked...but that didn't happen.

We know it was successful red because Battler was able to say it. However, it violated the stated rules of the trial. Think of it like evidence from an illegal wiretap. In certain cases, even perfectly sound evidence can be discounted if it is obtained by illegal or dubious means.
That trial is bullshit. Underdeveloped 15-year-old girls do not hang out on the sides of buildings in school swimsuits duct-taping windows shut, least of all during a hurricane.

Erika is obviously lying under oath throughout that entire trial, if you ask me.

The whole thing is a farce designed to get Natsuhi convicted. In fact, the entirety of Ep5 is a farce designed to blame Natsuhi, from what I've seen.
