'MOMMY, THE COMEDIAN CALLED ME A BAD WORD!'
There was no bailiff, no court reporter, no public and no charges lodged at the start of the trial.

There was even no defendant in person - but no matter. The mock trial would go on, its centerpiece a videotape replay of the accused, actor Michael Richards, repeating the "n-word" over and over in an onstage tirade at a Hollywood comedy stage three months ago.

The goal: to try Richards before an audience of invited media, relying on testimony from the four African Americans who were the targets of Richards' outburst, a UCLA psychologist and a Chicago-based expert on the history of the n-word. Presiding over the trial was a three-member panel headed by former California Supreme Court Justice Armand Arabian, who rendered a nonbinding verdict on the comedian who portrayed Kramer on the hit TV series "Seinfeld."

Attorney Gloria Allred, who organized Saturday's event, held at Loyola Law School, and picked the judges, acknowledged it was unusual.

"If we went ahead with a regular lawsuit, it could have taken several years before it got to court," Allred said of the four African Americans. "Now is when they are hurting. Now is when the public needs to hear a trial."

LA Times digg this
Hasn't Richards been punished enough? He's a laughingstock (and not in the way he's used to), pretty much everybody this side of David Duke agrees that what he did was stupid and wrong, and he's been going around with his hat in his hands apologizing to anybody who'll listen. His career is over! You win! These heckling dopes should quit acting like they're doing something noble and just admit they want some of that Seinfeld syndication money.
