One week before the case began KSDK requested a camera on behalf of all local and national media. We knew the case would have great interest because of the Busch family but we also knew it had the potential to spark national discussion and debate on the topic of equal pay and sex discrimination.
We felt it was important to document what could be a transformative case. Judge Burlison granted our request but with strict guidelines.He agreed to a wall mounted camera operated remotely. Jurors are forbidden to be photographed.
