How would you prosecute or defend the Vioxx trial that's happening right now in New Jersey? It's a question you can ask yourself as you watch Court TV's live coverage, available at the Court TV "Extra" site.
The sign-up process is easy, and it's free for 30 days. After that, access costs only $5.95 per month. You can cancel at any time. The only downside is that you can't record the proceedings--instead, you have to watch the proceedings live. And since the lawyers are straying from the pre-positioned microphones, the audio quality is not the best.
With these caveats, the Court TV website is not a bad way to get the Vioxx news as it's happening or, if you don't care about Vioxx, learn how civil trials are really conducted.
