It's Adam Gorfain, a 41 year old senior producer for "Dateline NBC" at the NBC News studios in Burbank, according to sometime
NBC ABC independent investigative producer Eric Longabardi on his website ERS News.com. He reports that, in addition to actively covering the Phil Spector murder case for months, Gorfain has overseen two "Dateline NBC" reports, in 1999 and 2005, that "took issue with the veracity and reliability of the DNA labs around the country and the conviction of a suspect in a New York murder case."
It looks like the judge will be getting more than he bargained for with media coverage. The story of how the case is ultimately decided by the jury, will get an even closer inside media look when all is said and done....
Just how and why Gorfain was selected to serve on the jury remains a mystery. It could be the defense may have been very interested in Gorfain's professional work related to DNA evidence and reliability of crime labs.
Gorfain came to L.A. in 2003 to cover the Michael Jackson molestation trial and stayed, says ERS. Gorfain swears of course that he'll be impartial and won't consume any news about the Spector case.
