Wait a minute... A robot named Adam is on trial for the murder of his creator whose name is Charles? That's Eando Binder's "I, Robot." Or, rather, the Outer Limits adaptation thereof, since there was no trial in the original story. Both versions of the Outer Limits adaptation, in the original and revival series, focused on the defense attorney as the main character.

It sounds like this is an adaptation of "I, Robot," but I can't find any articles stating that this is based on the work of Binder or Outer Limits screenwriter Robert C. Dennis, who added the trial element and the attorney character. Hopefully that's just an oversight on the part of the press.
Yeah, I seem to remember this news item coming up before and there being no mention of Adam Link. I wonder if Otto Binder has an estate.
