CJR · Julie K. Brown, Lucia Osbourne-Crowley, and coverage of the Ghislaine Maxwell trial

The Ghislaine Maxwell trial has highlighted the court system’s bullying of sexual assault victims—those who take the stand, those who come to bear witness, and even those who sit on the jury. 

On this week’s Kicker, Julie K. Brown, an investigative reporter with the Miami Herald whose work led to Maxwell’s and Jeffrey Epstein’s arrests, and Lucia Osborne-Crowley, a lawyer and a reporter for Law360 who broke the story that a Maxwell juror was a victim of sexual assault, join Kyle Pope, editor and publisher of CJR. They discuss how the press can hold the court system to account.
