Russell F. Canan, Gregory E. Mize, and Frederick H. Weisberg - Tough Cases: Judges Tell the Stories of Some of the Hardest Decisions They've Ever Made — at Politics and Prose at The Wharf

Upcoming Event
Wednesday, October 10, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Elián González, Terri Schiavo, Scooter Libby—we know the arguments presented in these cases, but next to nothing about what the judges were thinking as they heard the evidence. Gathering essays from judges across the country about their most difficult case, this volume gives us a rare perspective on the American judicial system, tracing not only judges’ trains of thought but their moral dilemmas and the personal biases they struggle to recognize and shut out as they hear a case. The editors, current or former judges themselves—Canan and Weisberg are associate judges for the Superior Court of the District of Columbia, Mize is a judicial fellow at the National Center for State Courts and an adjunct professor at the Georgetown University Law Center—will discuss the book and offer further comments on the challenges judges face.
