Sharp Objects Charles Manson’s “Girls” Carried In Court Just Wouldn’t Fly Today

American Lawyer magazine reviews “The Illustrated Courtroom: 50 Years of Court Art”….a colorful taster:

“Court artists rival war correspondents as raconteurs, and grabbing details lurk on every page.

Anyone who has gone through the security checkpoints of today’s courthouses will be bemused to learn that the Manson family members were permitted to carry long hunting knives into court so long as they were not concealed.” Read more: http://www.americanlawyer.com/id=1202656369813/Legal-Artistry%3A-Courthouse-Drama-Drawn-in-Real-Time#ixzz33hv9Szt9

Great piece about my new book with co-author/courtroom artist Elizabeth Williams in the New York Times today. Very exciting! It focuses on Elizabeth, her work, her exhibition at the World Trade Art Gallery in Manhattan, and on the famous biz-world cases she has covered in her many years covering major trials. The book is available now for order on Amazon or at the CUNY Journalism Press page.
