Spector's Retrial scheduled for October

I haven't been following the legal proceedings with regard to the once-renowned record producer Phil Spector and the death of Lana Clarkson.

I did follow the trial last year, and the more retentive of you may recall that I wrote some posts on it here. The upshot was that the jurors couldn't reach a verdict, and the judge dismissed them last September.

Here's a link to what the BBC had to say about it at the time.

The latest, though, is that after a lot of manuveuring it appears the re-trial will commence in October.

The re-trial is never as much trashy fun as the original.

Hello Christoper,

I attended about 90% of the first trial and will be attending the second. I agree that Spector 2 will not be as interesting as Spector 1. Besides, the real "celebrity," Dominick Dunne won't be in the courtroom for round 2.

Looking forward to your take on the proceedings.

Knowledge is warranted belief -- it is the body of belief that we build up because, while living in this world, we've developed good reasons for believing it. What we know, then, is what works -- and it is, necessarily, what has worked for us, each of us individually, as a first approximation.
