TMZ’s inclusion of jury visit video in a 1995 OJ Simpson criminal trial drama promo the other day was a double deja vu for me. In the midst of my gym workout, I saw images of the long entourage of the bus carrying jurors and cars with judge, various and sundry court staff and support, lawyers and their support staff, and van flicker across the screen of a TV monitor hanging from the ceiling. Oh, I thought, there I go!
I was riding in the van with members of the media, given that they were part of my job duties with the court. Watching that footage truly was a deja vu moment for me.
So was watching TMZ’s Harvey Levin talking about the jury visit and the trial. He was a reporter with Los Angeles the CBS affiliate during the OJ Simpson trial era and, as such, he and I had a good deal of interaction.
It was kind of fun to watch, and, I’m sure, won’t be my last deja vu moment with that case and the folks associated with it.
