Thanks for reminding everyone - I had it written down it was tomorrow. It's not televised, I presume? Will we find out any outcome of the pretrial hearing?

Can't answer any of your questions - sorry! But if you are in the L.A. I would think there would be "some" news about the trial. And unless the court site gives any info on what happened at the hearing - we won't really know. And I can't access the court site - so can't help you on that.

I had 5 twitter accounts for this case - and only 3 are good - but nothing on the case was posted...

I looked - but found nothing on jury selection for Friday - any locals? Find anything?

TIA! :)
