Seg. 1: The Players In The Greitens Trial. Seg. 2: Bill Shapiro On 40 Years Of Cyprus Avenue.
Segment 1: Understanding who's who in the upcoming trial of Missouri Governor Eric Greitens.
Missouri Governor Eric Greitens will stand trial on Monday for a felony charge of invasion of privacy. In the courtroom overseen by Judge Rex Burlison will be more than just prosecutor Kim Gardner and defense lawyer Edward Dowd. Each will lead a team of powerhouse attorneys so there are a lot of names in the lineup. To help us make sense of them all, we ran down the rosters with two reporters familiar with the players involved.
