Day in court a trial for many Japanese
Jun 18, 2009 by Reuters

Katsuyoshi Fujii may inadvertently make legal history in Japan. His trial for the fatal stabbing of an elderly neighbor in Tokyo looks set to be the first heard under a new system whereby members of the public join judges in deciding criminal cases.
