Once Upon a Time in Los Angeles: The Trials of Earl Rogers
Once Upon a Time in Los Angeles: The Trials of Earl Rogers
Earl Rogers was born in upstate New York in 1869. Sworn into the practice of law in California in 1897, Rogers' prolific legal career in Los Angeles spanned twenty-one years, ending in 1918.
He defended the famous and infamous, including:
The great Clarence Darrow on charges of jury bribery
Los Angeles Police Chief Charles Sebastian (who later became mayor of L.A.) on charges of having illegal sexual relations with a minor
real estate tycoon Colonel Griffith J. Griffith, who donated Griffith Park to the State of California, on charges of attempted murder of his wife
Heavyweight Champion Jess Willard on second degree murder charges
United Railroad chief Patrick Calhoun on charges of corruption and bribery of public officials in San Francisco
Rogers tried 77 murder trials, losing but three. In an era when there was no television, when radio and moving pictures were in their infancy, the daily newspapers of Los Angeles communicated the news to its citizens. Their coverage of Earl Rogers made him a man of great celebrity.
This book reveals Rogers through his most famous trials, including extensive quotes from the trial transcripts, biographical sketches of the participants, and analyses of the often amazing verdicts.
Handsome, brilliant and famous, he was also a raging alcoholic and a womanizer. His young daughter, Adela Rogers (St. Johns), who went on to achieve great fame as a writer and journalist, would often have the responsibility of looking for her father on the eve of a big trial, only to find him drunk in a sporting house. After a trip to the turkish baths, Rogers would be back in court doing battle brilliantly, only to disappear at trial's end for the process to repeat itself again and again.
Despite earning a huge fortune in legal fees as California's foremost trial lawyer, the cunning talented, charismatic and prolific Earl Rogers, a man whose words could move a jury from tears to laughter at will, died penniless in 1922 in a Los Angeles boarding house; a hopeless and broken-down drunk at the age of 52.

Before Leary, there was Oz... From Oscar Janiger's Wiki page. "Oscar Janiger (February 8, 1918 – August 14, 2001) was a University of California Irvine Psychiatrist who was best known for his LSD research, which lasted from 1954 to 1962. Nine hundred people took LSD (usually 2 micrograms per kilogram of bodyweight) and recorded their experiences. The participants included college students, a Deputy Marshall, housewives, attorneys, clerical assistants, counselors, medical personnel, dentists, physicians, and engineers. A substudy within Janiger's research focused specifically on artists and creativity. One patient of Dr. Janiger, bipolar and alcoholic artist Frank Murdoch, was given a controlled, experimental dose of LSD for several months as an attempt to cure his late stage alcoholism (probably a less well-known purpose to his LSD experiments, but very common in the era). Janiger had Murdoch paint still-lives both on and off LSD, including a Kachina doll (that he reportedly had 70 other patients also paint).[citation needed] The artists produced some 250 paintings and drawings after ingesting LSD. Historian Carl Hertel analyzed the art in 1971 and compared it to the artists' non-LSD work. Hertel found while the LSD art was neither superior nor inferior to the artists' other work, it was brighter, more abstract and non-representational, and tended to fill the entire canvas. One of the artists, Burt Shonberg, became one of Hollywood's most famous and sought after works. Two follow-up studies have been done. The first, done by Janiger around 1968, collected questionnaires from about 200 of the original participants. Much of this data remains unanalyzed and only a limited amount has been published. A second follow-up study was conducted in 1999 by Rick Doblin, Jerome E. Beck, Kate Chapman and Maureen Alioto, forty years after the original experimental LSD sessions. Taped interviews were completed by 45 of Janiger's original participants, as well as Janiger himself. The study concluded that the experiences were positive overall, but only 1/3 of the follow-up subjects reported long-term benefits from the LSD experiences. Janiger published a few journal articles and one book entitled "A Different Kind of Healing" in 1993 with Philip Goldberg. The book details physicians' views on the use of alternative medicine within traditional medical practise. Janiger also coauthored a second book with Marlene Dobkin de Rios about his LSD research—which was published (posthumously) in 2003 by Park Street Press—entitled "LSD, Spirituality, and the Creative Process". Janiger was affectionately referred to as Oz by his close friends." This all happened here.
LOS ANGELES, CA - OCTOBER 19: Various types of marijuana are on display at Private Organic Therapy (P.O.T.), a non-profit co-operative medical marijuana dispensary, on October 19, 2009 in Los Angeles, California. Attorney General Eric Holder announced new guidelines today for federal prosecutors in states where the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes is allowed under state law. Federal prosecutors will no longer trump the state with raids on the southern California dispensaries as they had been doing, but Los Angeles County District Attorney Steve Cooley recently began a crackdown campaign that will include raids against the facilities. Cooley maintains that virtually all marijuana dispensaries are in violation of the law because they profit from their product. The city of LA has been slow to come to agreement on how to regulate its 800 to 1,000 dispensaries. Californians voted to allow sick people with referrals from doctors to consume cannabis with the passage of state ballot Proposition 215 in 1996 and a total of 14 states now allow the medicinal use of marijuana.

The Fifth Witness
Mickey Haller has fallen on tough times. He expands his business into foreclosure defense, only to see one of his clients accused of killing the banker she blames for trying to take away her home.

Mickey puts his team into high gear to exonerate Lisa Trammel, even though the evidence and his own suspicions tell him his client is guilty. Soon after he learns that the victim had black market dealings of his own, Haller is assaulted, too--and he's certain he's on the right trail.

Despite the danger and uncertainty, Haller mounts the best defense of his career in a trial where the last surprise comes after the verdict is in. Connelly proves again why he "may very well be the best novelist working in the United States today" (San Francisco Chronicle).
