Abstract

This article examines the important subject of court-media relations in an age of new technology and a shifting and evolving media. After reviewing the past literature on court-media relations, experiences with the media during the Michael Jackson trial are analyzed to add to our knowledge of how trial court professionals can communicate better with the media during high profile cases.
