Prof. Richard Frase Discusses With Bloomberg Law the First Nine Days of Testimony in the Trial of Derek Chauvin for the Death of George Floyd

In his conversation with Bloomberg Law’s June Grasso about the first nine days of testimony in the trial of Derek Chauvin for the death of George Floyd (begins at 19:45), Prof. Richard Frase states that “the prosecution has done a very good job of laying out its key themes… anticipating where the defense is going to attack most forcefully, particularly on the issues of causation of death by Derek Chauvin and justified use of force. I think they’ve made as strong a case as they can.” Prof. Frase also discussed specific strategies used thus far by the prosecution and the defense.
