Melvin Belli: King Of The Courtroom
Melvin Belli: King of the Courtroom
Melvin Belli was a rogue, a charmer and a rule bender in the courtroom. He led the way for many of the multimillion-dollar lawsuits we see today in the news. Known for his controversial representation of Jack Ruby, Belli pioneered legal strategies and wrote many books revealing his unconventional courtroom wisdom. He was a crusader notorious for his scandalous court cases, and won large awards for his clients often with unorthodox tactics. Dubbed King of Torts by Life Magazine, Belli represented the likes of Lana Turner, George Foreman, Mickey Cohen, and the Rolling Stones.
