A Temple University journalism student has gone viral as ‘the woman in the blue dress’. Cassie Semyon sprinted from the court house after President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and former lawyer Michael Cohen were found guilty of eight counts of financial crimes. There were no phones allowed in the court, so there was a mad dash once the verdict was out for journalists to get their stories told and printed. Though Semyon wasn’t the first out of the courtroom, she’s getting tons of recognition for her dedication. The girl is fast.
Yes, it is me, the journalist in the blue dress, running after the #ManafortTrial verdict. Thank you @Jacquelyn_M for the photo! #GoBlueDressGo pic.twitter.com/IkOM7VbWC5

The sprint from the Manafort courthouse after the verdict: guilty on 8 felony counts; hung jury on 10 counts. (No phones allowed in courthouse, so news comes via fleet feet.) pic.twitter.com/JDc8QyMBxs
