The Trial will begin next week in the Cook County Criminal Courts Building. The use of Twitter is creating tension between reporters and judges who fear tweeting could threaten a defendant's right to a fair trial and that issue has been highlighted by the Chicago court's decision to ban anyone from tweeting at Balfour's trial.
