News, Celebrity trials collide in L.A. County’s biggest courthouse : detailed suggestions and opinions about Celebrity trials collide in L.A. County’s biggest courthouse .
As a crowd of dozens shoved and jostled their way toward an overwhelmed security checkpoint on the 9th floor of Los Angeles County’s largest criminal courthouse last month actor, Scientologist and accused rapist Danny Masterson bumped up against several jurors.
But not jurors in his high-profile trial — the other one happening down the hall.
Whether it was O.J. Simpson, infamous L.A. serial killers such as the Night Stalker or Grim Sleeper, or the doctor convicted of giving Michael Jackson a fatal overdose, the 9th floor of the Clara Shortridge Foltz Criminal Justice Center in downtown L.A. has long been where the county’s most notorious — and sometimes famous — are brought to face justice.
Infamous among prosecutors, defense attorneys and court watchers, the 9th floor can always be expected to have something noir and noteworthy happening. But these are particularly busy days.
