An independent judiciary is one of the fundamental institutions of our republic. It provides a forum for resolution of passionately disputed conflicts and protects our basic liberties. Yet, like all things human, it is flawed and sometimes disappointing. Fiction offers an opportunity to penetrate to the heart of the legal process — with its strengths, weaknesses, and painful moral dilemmas — especially when the story takes place in a recognizable local setting.
