Trials of the century and juror bias

In a recent book, Lise Pearlman, a former managing partner at Stark, Stewart, Wells & Robinson in Oakland, Calif. and retired presiding judge of the State Bar Court, looks at the 1968 capital murder trial of Black Panther Huey Newton as well as other candidates for the “Trial of the Century,” including the Charles Lindbergh kidnapping case, the Sacco and Vanzetti trial, the Scopes trial and other iconic trials that have shaped American law.
