Khodorkovsky Lawyer Twitters Trial

Robert Amsterdam, who's part of former Yukos head Mikhail Khodorkovsky's legal team, is twittering from the trial.

So far it doesn't sound incredibly riveting.

Almost nothing of interest to report from today's Khodorkovsky trial hearings - pure tedium and poorly pronounced foreign names.

-- Luke Allnutt

CORRECTION: Robert Amsterdam is not actually in the courtroom, he is passing on comments by colleagues at the trial.
