Also the CBS website for TPIR isn't listing any airdate info whatsoever (reruns or otherwise) past March 26.

Which is weird because CBS has airdates for sister show Let's Make a Deal past March 26.

It's not the first time the CBS website didn't update on a timely basis. Here's the schedule on the TPiR website:

The reason may be because, as per another source, the trial may last upwards of four weeks.  So CBS does not have any episodes of Price on the network's schedule, in case trial coverage lasts many, many weeks and causes pre-emptions for the entire duration.

It certainly wouldn't be the first time there were many consecutive episodes pre-empted. One example is the Iraq War coverage that caused just over two weeks of pre-emptions - which included ten consecutive episodes - occurring from March 24 through April 4, 2003.  When the show returned on April 7 that year, reruns were initially planned before the coverage started, but that became a full week of rescheduled episodes - if memory serves correctly, the week of March 24 to 27, 2003 was aired during what would have been April break (though the March 26, 2003 episode got hit with a double whammy on April 9 that year as it was pre-empted again for coverage of the takedown of Saddam's statue, and that particular episode finally aired on September 2, 2003), and the week of March 31 through April 4, 2003, plus one episode from mid-March that year, was reserved for June after the season finale had aired.

However, I am not sure if the O.J. Simpson trial coverage during 1994 and 1995 may have caused a lot of pre-emptions during those years, could someone please clarify?

Based on past history, except for some breaking news, CBS tends to schedule special reports during the hour that Price would normally air because CBS wants to ensure that all of America is informed of what's going on during a time slot that has the highest viewership.

Just to clarify, one outside source cites that the trial could last anywhere between 2 to 4 weeks.  It's possible that CBS does not have any airdates listed at this time because of uncertainty on how long the coverage could last.

That doesn't make the slightest bit of sense.  Special Reports don't happen if there isn't breaking news.

I disagree. I think it's more along the lines of, TPIR is one of the few shows where it's not going to mess too many things up if an episode is pre-empted. (If, say, The Young & the Restless is pre-empted, then everything has to be pushed back a day; they can't just move the pre-empted episode to another date and continue with the rest of the episodes as scheduled.)

Even this assumes that CBS has any say in the matter as to, for example, when Biden wants to hold a news conference.

On the upside, the episode that was reaired on Monday had its original show credits aired on television instead of the usual network split screen credits with promos for upcoming network shows.
