Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Trying cases in the court of public opinion refers to using the news media to influence public support for one side or the other in a court case. This can result in persons outside the justice system taking action for or against a party. For instance, the reputation of a party may be greatly damaged even if he wins the case. A lawyer noted that when he represents high-profile clients, he sometimes finds them in a Bermuda triangle of cross-currents generated by a criminal investigation, the news media, and the U.S. Congress. It has been noted that there is no Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination in the court of public opinion.show more
