In Fullerton, California, attorney Borsari went to trial defending the manager of a local hotel against charges of RESISTING A POLICE OFFICER and ILLEGAL CONDUCT AT A BURNING BUILDING for behavior she allegedly demonstrated toward firefighters and police officers as they responded to fight a fire in her hotel. As the prosecution witnesses were cross examined the momentum of the trial was clearly with the defense.
