You almost wouldn’t know that a major trial was happening in downtown Charlottesville, Virginia.

Most of the city is operating normally—normal for a pandemic, anyway. But the federal courthouse at a main intersection in the middle of downtown has yellow tape blocking the walkways (courtesy of the U.S. Marshals Service), plenty of federal agents and court security officers, and about a dozen reporters holed up in a grand jury room on the first floor of the building.
