Up until now, Michael Jackson's court appearances in Santa Maria had a certain exclusivity. That was primarily due to the fact that, owing to holidays etc, the rest of the court rooms were closed.
However, it is expected that once the Michael Jackson trial for real starts on the 13th of September the other court rooms will be open.
This means that cases, with less celebrity status, but doubtless equally important to the participants will be taking place at the same time.
This poses a major headache to the courthouse staff and local police. Aside from trying to maintain the integrity and security of the Michael Jackson case, there are also more practical issues such as parking to be considered.
There is also the vexed question as to where to put the media and their technology (cables, phones etc). Doubtless the local sheriff's department have a few private thoughts about where they would like to put them!
