Legal Round-Up: Greig Pleads Not Guilty, Inmate Sex Change, Malpractice Study
Catherine GreigIt took less than five minutes this morning for Catherine Grieg – the longtime girlfriend of reputed Boston crime boss James "Whitey" Bulger – to plead not guilty to federal charges of conspiracy to harbor and conceal a fugitive. After the arraingment, Greig’s attorney told reporters that his client has no intention of cooperating with law enforcement. We’ll discuss that and get the latest on the convicted murderer suing Massachusetts prison officials for a sex-change operation. Plus, a new Harvard study of malpractice claims shows only one in five claims against doctors leads to a settlement or other payout. David Frank, senior news reporter for Lawyers Weekly, joins us with a round-up headline grabbing legal stories.

The Great Back Bay Blackout
After a smoky electrical transformer fire knocked out power to about 21,000 homes and businesses, sections of the neighborhood are getting back online. But problems are expected to persist into tonight. We’ll have the latest.

Guests:
  Garrett Quinn, WGBH contributor and author of the Less is More blog on Boston.com
  Meg Mainzer-Cohen, president of the Back Bay Association
  Marcia Gregg, a Back Bay resident who (along with her family) lost power (and still doesn’t have it)
  David Jacobs, publisher and editor The Boston Courant, covers Back Bay, South End Beacon Hill and Fenway

The Baffler Is Back
The self-described “journal that blunts the cutting edge” is back in print after a two-year hiatus. The Baffler’s latest issue of scathing media, political and cultural criticism hits newsstands tomorrow. And no cow is sacred. (Not even the one that pays its bills).

Guests:
  John Summers, editor of The Baffler
  Thomas Frank, journalist and author of books like What’s The Matter With Kansas? and most recently, Pity The Billionaire. Founding editor of The Baffler
