Contaminated verdict
M. Pacelle December 1986 American Lawyer

This is a summary of the famous 'A Civil Action' trial that includes interviews with some of the jurors. It also describes the difficulties each lawyer encountered when presenting his/her case to the jury. It is good complementary reading to the 'A Civil Action' book, which is written through the eyes of the plaintiffs' attorney.
