About

Trial of the Century is a celebrated blog (by somebody, we’re sure), the Best-Kept Secret on the Internet for four years running, and third runner-up for the 2015 Webbie awards’ Tenth Runner-Up award.  We bring you all the news that’s fit to print, though do please keep in mind that “fit to print” is a terribly subjective qualification.
