Lawyers are taught that the law of primacy and recency should be considered in choosing the order of witnesses. Seeing who will be the first witness for Bill Campbell lets one know that this was definitely considered by the defense team. The witness according to the AJC here is going to be Andrew Young, "the former Atlanta mayor, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations and one of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.'s closest aides." If he proves to be helpful, this could be devastating to the prosecution. If he proves incredibly supportive, it may be possible that Campbell will not need to take the stand. (see here). Stay tuned.
