This update of A Manual for Managing Notorious Cases (1992) is "the most concise comprehensive introduction to handling a high-profile trial," says Hon. William Howard, the judge in the Susan Smith trial. This new edition reflects lessons learned from high-profile cases since 1992 in four broad topics: pretrial planning, how to deal with the media, jury considerations, and security. Appendices provide samples of guidelines and forms used by courts that have tried notorious cases.
"A great resource for any Judge or Court Administrator dealing with a media-driven trial. There is no need to reinvent the wheel when its all here!"
Judge David C. Perez, Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles
"Each court should be prepared and have a plan in place before a notorious case is filed. The manual will be invaluable to your court in preparing such a plan."
James R. Manspeaker, Clerk, United States District Court, District of Colorado
