Televised across the country by Court TV, the 1995 murder trial of O.J. Simpson became arguably the most publicized criminal case in American history. To give a local perspective to the national story, the Star-Telegram elected to form a panel of Arlington residents to watch the trial unfold and pass their own verdict. This unedited news report about the shadow panel begins by showing a Star-Telegram reporter explaining the purpose of the panel. Next, Dallas-based director Jim Ruddy interviews panel members about their opinions of the trial so far. Ruddy also speaks with patrons at a local restaurant, J. Gilligan’s, about the explosive media coverage of the trial.
