After over a year since Tyler Clementi tragically jumped to his death from the George Washington Bridge, his Rutgers University roommate Dahrun Ravi, who many blame for the suicide since he filmed the gay teen being intimate with another man in their room via webcam, will finally stand trial for multiple counts of invasion of privacy, witness tampering, hindering prosecution and bias intimidation, and could face up to ten years in prison if convicted!
The jury selection is set to begin

We're sorry to hear it. We have a feeling Jennifer would like to get this over with as soon as possible.
To recap - Jennifer Hudson's mother, brother, and nephew were tragically murdered back in 2008.
Then last month, we heard that Jennifer might be called to testify as a witness in the court case against her brother-in-law William Balfour, the man accused of committing the triple murder.
The trial had

No surprises here.
To recap, the judge in Dr. Conrad Murray's involuntary manslaughter trial over the death of Michael Jackson previously ruled that the jury would NOT be sequestered.
Then on Saturday, we learned that Murray's defense team filed an appeal on that decision.

Way back in March 2009, Rock of Love Charm School contestant Megan Hauserman planned on filing a lawsuit against Sharon Osbourne for battery, negligence, and infliction of emotional distress.
Last week, jury selection had finally begun for the trial, and it looked like neither party was willing to settle.
NOW, it looks like the two were in fact able to reach a settlement on Sunday, but both parties have refused to discuss.
We're glad to hear these two were able to finally work everything out!

Oh boy. This is going to become an absolute circus.
The involuntary manslaughter trial of Dr. Conrad Murray, who is accused for his part in Michael Jackson's death, is getting ready to go, and yesterday, El Lay County Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor not only ordered jury selection to begin on March 24th, but also approved the use of television cameras during the trial!
According to the defense and prosecution, the opening statements will most likely be delivered during the first week of April, and the actual trial will last around six weeks.
Good lord. We need to start mentally and physically preparing ourselves for this.
A whole lot of insanity is going to be coming everyone's way if the public is allowed to watch all of this mess go down.
