Press Release:


Comic-Con International 2013 Panel Applies Real-Life Law and Forensic Psychiatry to Post-Zombie-Apocalyptic-World

Los Angeles, CA, July 2013 – After unprecedented audience response to presentations at Comic-Con and WonderCon, the doctors of Broadcast Thought, H. Eric Bender, M.D., Praveen R. Kambam, M.D., and Vasilis K. Pozios, M.D., return to San Diego Comic-Con for another must-see panel. On Thursday, July 18, 2013, from 8:00 pm to 9:30 pm, in Room 7AB, they will team up with one of the lawyers from Law and the Multiverse, co-author of “The Law of Superheroes,” James Daily, and attorney and professor Jeff Trexler, to present “Not Guilty Due to Zombification? Law & Forensic Psychiatry in a Zombie Apocalypse.” Together this collaborative panel will offer fascinating insights into the legal ramifications of a zombie apocalypse. Would zombies have the same legal rights as their human counterparts? What criminal charges might the surviving humans face? Could a “cured” zombie be found guilty of murders committed as a zombie? Explore these and other scenarios facing humans, zombies, and former zombies alike during a zombie apocalypse. Broadcast Thought and the attorneys will present a never-before-seen mock trial at Comic-Con. The lawyers will be the prosecution and defense, the doctors will be the expert witnesses, and you will be the jury. Join them, and discover whether the walking dead will be found guilty or will walk free!
