9 13.04.2015 Инфо

Jury selection began on Monday in a trial in which Home Box Office Inc faces libel claims over a report linking British sporting goods company Mitre Sports International to child labor in India. The trial in federal court in Manhattan is the culmination of years of litigation over the report on "Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel," which first aired in September 2008. U.S. District Judge George Daniels told potential jurors that the trial was expected to take up to four weeks. Mitre, established in 1817, is the world's oldest manufacturer of soccer balls.
