Could 30 court cases be in jeopardy?

Bill Ritter's daily take on the news.

Remember the scene in the movie "The Shining," where Shelly Duvall is watching her husband played by Jack Nicholson go crazy at a haunted house on a mountain where they're spending the winter as caretakers.

It's a great Stephen King horror film ? and Nicholson is supposed to be writing a book, but when Duvall sees the typed pages, there's just one line: "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy."

Hard not to conjure up that turning-point scene in the movie when we heard today about an alcoholic court stenographer in Manhattan who goes off track, typing not testimony but just one line: "I hate my job, I hate my job." Over and over again.

Now some 30 court cases are in jeopardy and scrutiny.

Can you imagine? We're looking into the story.

We'll also have any breaking news of the night, plus Meteorologist Lee Goldberg with his AccuWeather forecast, and Rob Powers with the night's sports.

I hope you can join Sade Baderinwa and me, tonight at 11.
