In a highly publicized case in Ontario, the judge barred all media and spectators from the courtroom. Her decision was based on the judgement that the public interest would not be served by allowing spectators. A local citizen argued, “they pleaded with the public to help find the victim; they pleaded with the public to provide tips; they aroused the public interest, then they claimed that allowing us to attend would not serve the public interest. These actions are inconsistent.”

The reasoning in the local citizen’s argument is flawed because this argument:

(A) Generalizes from an atypical case
(B) Trades on an ambiguity with respect to the term “pubic interest”
(C) Overlooks the fact that the judge might not be the one who made the plea to the public for help
(D) Attempts to support its conclusion by making sensationalistic appeals
(E) Presumes that the public’s right to know is obviously more important than the defendant’s right to a fair trial

C (the judge barred all media and spectators from the courtroom) for a reason that may not be implied. The police and the judicial system are different entities so this is flawed “they pleaded with the public to help find the victim; they pleaded with the public to provide tips;" It is just that the public is interested in this case and would have liked to participate, and if the case was highly publicized like written the court would like calm and order to make a sound judgement .

IMO B.

The "public interest" for not allowing people during the trail refers to "welfare of public", the "public interest" aroused refers to "general interest/curiosity of public. The local citizen confusingly uses the two.

Thanks nightblade354!

I am removing the Expert Reply request. That feature should be used to ask specific questions.

Good luck!

C for me.

These actions are not inconsistent because the judge might not have been the one to ask for Public Help!!

IMO B

The judge might see fit to maintain the decor for reasons such as >> peaceful trial or possible violence . The other person takes this at a moral stage

Great job to everyone who participated! This is a particularly tricky question, one which I too found challenging. The OA is indeed (B). Similar to the majority who got this question wrong, I too chose (C). The key reason why (C) is wrong, among other things, is that it says that the judge MIGHT not have been a part of it. But what if she was a part of it? This would keep the argument strong, and therefore is not our answer. I was hoping for a more detailed response as to why (C) is incorrect, but kudos to urvashis09, who I deemed to have the best answer for this passage!
