Should Michael Brown's juvenile court record be released?

Michael Brown was 18 years old when he was shot and killed by Officer Darren Wilson. Now a judge is deciding whether to release his juvenile court records. This legal battle began when a pair of media outlets petitioned to make the records public. At a hearing today, a court official said that Brown had no serious felony convictions as a juvenile. What would be gained by releasing these records? Anderson spoke with CNN legal analysts Jeffrey Toobin and Mark Geragos and legal affairs commentator Areva Martin.

Would a dashcam really answer all the questions in the Michael Brown shooting?

There was no dashcam on Officer Wilson's car when he fired the fatal shots at Michael Brown. Some argue one of those cameras could have stopped the controversy surrounding the shooting. Randi Kaye looks at several incidents where dashcams were involved and found it is not always an open and shut case.

Are dashcams really a quick fix in cases like the Michael Brown shooting? Anderson discussed that question with Washington University law professor Neil Richards and CNN legal analyst Mark Geragos.

Is Donald Sterling 'mentally incapacitated'?

First came word that former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer agreed to buy the Clippers for $2-billion. Then we learned that two doctors declared Donald Sterling mentally incapacitated, giving his wife Shelly sole power to sell the team.

Anderson discussed these latest twists with sports agent Drew Rosenhaus and criminal defense attorney Mark Geragos.

Roger Mason Jr is the Vice President of the National Basketball Players Association, he told Anderson that he was stunned by the amount of money Steve Ballmer is willing to pay for the Clippers.

Does a new audiotape explain why Donald Sterling made racist comments?

Were the racist comments that led to Donald Sterling's lifetime ban from the NBA simply a matter of him being jealous?
