New York Times: At Trial of Newark’s Former Mayor, Feelings of Loyalty, and of Being Let Down

New York Times: At Trial of Newark’s Former Mayor, Feelings of Loyalty, and of Being Let Down

After drawing enough people to fill Judge Martini’s courtroom when opening arguments began March 3, the trial has been sparsely attended since. Mr. Price, the Rutgers history professor, attributed the seeming lack of interest to the city’s collective fatigue with the travails of Mr. James.

“It may be that Newark has moved on, and Sharpe James is now officially part of the past,” he said. “It may be that this city and its citizens are exhausted by all this drama. The trial has just started but the drama surrounding this trial has gone on for a very long time.”

Professor price sums up my feelings on the Sharpe James trial succinctly.
