Ashleigh Banfield joined CNN in January 2012 to co-anchor the morning show "Early Start". Later that year she moved her anchor chair to a late-morning weekday airing of "CNN Newsroom". Now, following another change -- the rebranding of "CNN Newsroom" -- by the perpetually evolving network, the bespectacled Banfield actually gets her name in the program title and, by extension, is presumably allowed more editorial freedom. In the hourlong Legal View with Ashleigh Banfield the former CourtTV host takes a closer look at legal stories and issues making headlines.
