      EVENT DETAILS
      Dan Bernstein Presents: Justice in Plain Sight

      Dan will speak about his new book, Justice in Plain Sight: How a Small-Town Newspaper and Its Unlikely Lawyer Opened America’s Courtrooms. The book explains what happened when The Press-Enterprise tried to do its job: tell readers about shocking crimes in the city’s backyard. But when judges kept the doors of the courtrooms shut to both the public and the press, telling the whole story became impossible. James Ward, a business lawyer, took two cases to the nation’s Supreme Court on behalf of the Newspaper. The paper won both and established First Amendment rights that broadened the public’s access to the judicial system, including the right to witness jury selection and preliminary hearings.
