“Independence Corrupted,” with Charles Schudson

Thursday, September 26, 2019

With twenty-two years in America’s courts, Judge Charles Schudson knows the factors affecting judicial decision-making. Join Charles on Thursday, September 26 at 6 PM in MPL’s Balkansky Community Room for this fascinating presentation, based on his recently-published book, “Independence Corrupted: How America’s Judges Make their Decisions.” With scholarship and impassioned accounts of compelling cases, he brings readers behind the trial bench to see judges analyzing actual trials and sentencings—of abortion protesters, sex predators, murderers, white supremacists, and more. He opens the doors to appellate chambers to hear judges debating life and death, multimillion-dollar damages, and priceless civil rights. Judge Schudson exposes the personal, professional, and political pressures now threatening judicial integrity like never before. With attacks on judges intensifying, Independence Corrupted is essential for all citizens concerned about the survival of judicial independence.
