The sun is coming up and the ants, including us, are are descending on Pepperdine University. There are signs along the driveway for "Floyd Landis/USADA Arbitration", up to the parking lot, which is reserved for the hearing. Across the street, following more signs, down the stairs, up a corridor, and right. On the left is a working media room, and on the right is the Mock Courtroom.
(from the Pepperdine Law floor plan)
It's posh, being the pride of a well endowed Law school. Behind the bar, there's 5 rows of seats, and a center aisle. Like a wedding, there are reserved seats, with the front two rows on the left for Landis, and two on the right for USADA. Behind that is a row for Pepperdine, which might include some members of the lucky public, then a row for the press. Finally, a short row on the left for technical help (the wheelchair block), and on the right, some seats for USOC and AAA.
We're told there are about 60 media people representing around 30 outlets. The outlets will be competing for the one row of seats in the courtroom.
Further on the left is an overflow room, which is probably where more of the public can go. Both the working media room and the overflow room have video projectors and sound of the pool feed. There's internet of dubious quality, and a guy running around trying to get the other access point working.
