The courtroom drama that never had a chance to occur will now be held live…hosted by the South Texas College of Law, featuring stellar legal talent and world-renowned J.F.K. assassination experts.
It happens Nov. 16-17. Fans of history and courtroom drama will be treated to an insightful and entertaining mock trial, in which a Harris County judge, prosecutors, and defense attorneys try the landmark case: State of Texas v. Lee Harvey Oswald using 21st century techniques in front of Harris County jurors.
And Alec Baldwin–the Alec Baldwin–will speak at the reception about “Why the JFK Assassination Remains Important.” I don’t know about you but I’m going.

Kennedy’s assassination in 1963 was “somewhat primitive” and riddled with “too many holes.”
