Jury selection starts in Herald case

In Boston, jury selection began yesterday in Superior Court Judge Ernest B. Murphy's high-profile libel suit against the Boston Herald in Suffolk Superior Court, the Boston Globe reports.

Murphy sued the Herald over a series of reports that began with a Feb. 13, 2002, front-page story describing his sentencing practices as overly lenient. The Herald maintains that its lead reporter worked hard to check the accuracy of the information he was given, and the paper says it stands behind his reporting.
