Disorder In The Court

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Courtrooms are supposed to be civil places, but they’re most memorable when disorder rules.

That’s the whole truth from Court TV reporter Ashleigh Banfield, the host of Disorder In The Court: The 20 Most Outrageous Courtroom Moments, a special debuting tonight (Sept. 29).

She had a lot of moments to choose from, so many that she could do a nightly series.

Banfield is especially fond of the parole board appearances Charles Manson makes every five years. As she puts it, “Is it possible for someone to be that crazy? And the answer is ‘Yes.”’

The show also features the courtroom sagas of Larry Flynt, Michael Jackson, and O.J. Simpson, which begs the question: Are celebrity trials wackier than others?

Banfield is still trying to figure that one out, wondering if the high-profile personalities simply attract more scrutiny.
