The Forgotten Trial of Jack Ruby:
America’s First Major TV 
Case  

On November 24, 1963, at 11:21 AM, millions of Americans watched Jack Ruby step up with a .38 caliber revolver in hand and shoot Lee Harvey Oswald, the man who had killed President John F. Kennedy.

His guilt was never really in doubt so how did he die an innocent man? Was the shooting the next step in a dark conspiracy? Had the small-time nightclub owner covered up for the mob, the Russians, the Cubans or the CIA, which had somehow induced Oswald to murder the president?

The nation followed along as the country’s best-known lawyer squared off against a tough-as-nails prosecutor in one of America’s most bizarre trials.

In their latest historic thriller, Dan Abrams and David Fisher take readers inside the courtroom where Ruby, the city of Dallas and the entire American legal system were on the docket for a global judicial battle.

Dan will take us there in conversation with Floyd Abrams.
