Grace On Trial: Should TV Hosts Play Detective? Attorney Says No

The AP’s story about the Melinda Duckett/Nancy Grace lawsuit:

Jay Paul Deratany the attorney representing Duckett’s estate, said Tuesday that Grace encouraged Duckett to appear on her show by saying the goal was to draw public attention to help find Trenton.

‘It’s not just about the questioning, it’s about the misrepresentation with the knowledge that she was emotionally distraught,’ Deratany said. The attorney said Grace improperly took on the role of a law enforcement officer.
