California Supreme Court Rules On Conflicts Of Interest Regarding Prosecutors Involved In Outside Media Endeavors

Two interesting rulings today from the Supreme Court of California involving questions of when prosecutors may or may not need to recuse themselves when they are involved in film and book projects related to the cases they are trying.

Hollywood v. Superior Court [PDF] (An ironic title for the case, given its subject matter – involving a film that I thought was very solid.)

Haraguchi v. Superior Court [PDF] (concerning this book.)
