In the past half-century, I suspect, enough trees to constitute a small forest have been turned into paper simply for discussion of free speech and fair trial issues. I doubt that there is little new to say about how legislatures or courts should be dealing with the subject at the moment. The Supreme Court has been able to work out a series of positions that are at least "good enough for govermnent work" concerning subjects such as attorney speech regulations, closure of trials, courthouse picketing, and protective orders related to the discovery process.
