This report originated with a tip from someone who found me on LinkedIn. Using shoeleather reporting, telephone interviews and on-line databases of federal and state courts, I wrote a 2500-word story that ran on the CW web site and in newspapers including the SF Chron. I also worked with video producers on a four-minute television report for California ABC stations, and on a "public engagement" page with explanatory and related materials. I also supplied CW staff with pdfs of background and supporting materials that were attached to links embedded in the story.
