Event Description:
On November 27, 1978, the nation's first openly gay elected official, San Francisco Supervisor Harvey Milk, and Mayor George Moscone were shot to death in City Hall by former city supervisor Dan White. In White's murder trial, the defense team successfully argued diminished capacity based in part upon his junk food diet. Was this right, or should White have been convicted of murder? Join the prosecution or defense team, and argue the case yourself, with help from leading trial lawyers Vincent Chang and Garrick Lew, Judge William Kelly, and trial consultants David Weinberg and Dr. Darlene Shelton.
