(NECN) – Monday is day nine in court for the James ‘Whitey’ Bulger trial and we start the third week of proceedings with more motions filed on behalf of the mob boss.
BC Law Professor Margaret McLean, our Bulger trial insider, joined NECN to talk about the recent developments.

Bulger’s attorneys filed a motion to have a gag order removed, to allow Bulger’s side to be able to speak with media.

McLean said, “I think this is Whitey Bulger working behind the scenes.”

She said that J.W. Carney, Bulger’s defense attorney, will lose this motion because it would just allow Carney to try to win over the media.
