Michael McDermott of Haverill, Mass. , who was convicted in the
office shootings of seven co-workers at Edgewater Technologies in
Wakefield, Mass. on Dec. 26, 2000, appears at a pre-trial hearing at
Suffolk Superior Court in Boston in this Oct. 22, 2001 file photo. A
stray reference to the Sept. 11 terror attacks did not unfairly
taint McDermott's trial, the state's highest court ruled Friday,
April 13, 2007.
