A reliable source told me last week that seats were available at the Jeremy Christian trial except for a few reserved seats in the front. I'm not sure how anyone reserved the seats and I can't find any way to reserve seating for the Jeremy Christian show online anywhere. I tried Googling stuff like "Jeremy Christian trial seats" only to find arguments from the defense saying that Micah Fletcher had repeatedly shoved Jeremy into seats on the Max before he started stabbing people. I've tried Googling with quotes around "reserve", "reserved," etc. and can't find any way to book a seat at the Multnomah County Courthouse for anything at all. I even tried looking for anything involving Jeremy Christian on Fandango and found nothing.
I don't want to have to go down there early or end up camping on the sidewalk overnight like a Star Wars fan just to get a seat. I'd like to know how Judge Cheryl Albrecht goes about reserving seats for events in her courtroom. Do I have to go through the DA's office or defense counsel. Do they have limited numbers of reserved seats to give away? If so are they willing to auction one off? You should be able to book a seat in advance without being booked into the Multnomah County Jail and having to go to your own event later. Pretty much every event venue uses their website, Fandango, or similar services to spare people the inconvenience of showing up early hoping to get seats or worse (not getting a seat at all). Why should the courthouse be any different? If Ringling Bros. were putting on this circus I'd have a seat by now.
