Anne Kingston reflects on the Ghomeshi courtroom experience

Maclean's watched Ghomeshi's first sex-assault trial from beginning to end.

Few reporters followed Jian Ghomeshi’s first round of courtroom drama as closely as Maclean’s senior writer Anne Kingston, who guided readers from the trial’s first days, through the testimony of three sex-assault complainants, to the not-guilty verdict and what happens next. Kingston also put defence counsel Marie Henein under the microscope.

Now, as Ghomeshi awaits his next trial on sex-assault charges in June, Kingston reflects on what’s already gone down at the courtroom inside Toronto’s old city hall. She takes us through what we don’t know about what it was like in the room, what she thought of the so-called Twitter effect on proceedings, and the most memorable moment so far.
