CHICAGO (AP) -- Jennifer Hudson arrives each day at the trial of the man accused of killing her mother, brother and nephew with her own bodyguards. She enters through a hidden entrance, eats in private and waits for proceedings to start in judge's chambers.
A judge's liaison at the trial, Irv Miller, says the provisions for the Oscar winner are reasonable to ensure her celebrity doesn't disrupt the courthouse.
And he notes Hudson is both a victim and a state's witness. He says celebrities who are defendants wouldn't get the same consideration.
But some say the Chicago criminal courthouse has gone too far.
Manny Medrano is a Los Angeles-based attorney who calls the accommodations "outrageous," saying they violate a judicial principle of equal treatment.
