The Journal News: Jury’s Role Can’t Be Undermined by Media Coverage

Pace Law professor Randolph McLaughlin is a regular contributor to The Journal News on Legal Matters. In this opinion piece he offers perspective on two legal cases that have caused recent media frenzy, the Casey Anthony trial and the Doninique Strauss-Kahn case. In the case of the former, the public may not have liked the verdict but, he says, the legal system was working at its best. In the case of the latter, McLaughlin feels special treatment of the rich and powerful may be at play in a case that he feels should go to trial.
