Summary and Info
As the Los Angeles Superior Court s media liaison, Hayslett had unprecedented access to the trial of the century as she attempted to mediate between the court and members of the media.She kept a detailed journal during the proceedings and shares previously undisclosed information to expose some of the myths and stereotypes perpetuated by the trial, while affirming other stories that emerged during that time. The first account written with Judge Ito s cooperation, this book shows how the trial has produced a bunker mentality in the judicial system, shaping media and public access to courts with lasting impact on such factors as cameras in the courtroom, jury selection, admonishments from the bench, and fair-trial/free-press tensions.
