A Netflix star and the lawyer in the centre of one of the most controversial and long-running murder cases is coming to Glasgow.

David Rudolf will be heading to the Strath Union for a live Q&A event on Wednesday, February 12, at 6pm.

The Netflix cult series The Staircase dives into the twisting and bizzare case of Michael Peterson, a novelist convicted in 2003 of murdering his wife Kathleen Peterson after she was found unconscious at the bottom of a staircase in their mansion home.

Spanning a nearly two-decade-long battle with the American justice system starting in 2001 from a frantic 911 call, the case weaves through theories of murder inspiration from a family friend’s staircase accident to even a fatal owl attack.

Jean-Xavier de Lestrade’s documentary series “The Staircase” follows the build-up to the trial, how it unfolds in the courtroom and its aftermath has catapulted the already infamous case into a true-crime documentary hit.

Glasgow Times:

The conversation will involve David Rudolf discussing his client Michael Peterson, the case and it’s broader comments on the American justice system.

Ticket holders will be given the opportunity to see clips from the case that were never aired and ask questions to one of the most prominent figures in the modern American legal system.
