JUDGES SUMMARY and MOVIE SUGGESTIONS are: Casino Jack and the United States of Money suggests that the US Supreme Court does not think their should be limitations on campaign spending by Corporations! The Art of the Steal (2009) is brilliant at showing how the wealthy and politicans can get a judge to go against the wishes of a wealthy man's will. A lawyer makes the strongest treat to a judge in court that may ever be made in a movie in Miracle at St. Anna (2008) interestingly, it seems to be for good cause; Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired (2008) has a tricky judge; I Love You Phillip Morris (2010) shows a strange scene in Judge's chambers that results in a strange result; Law Abiding Citizen (2009) makes a cynical comment about judges; My Sister's Keeper (2009) is the best medical/legal drama, with the most interestingly unbiased judge. Complain to the Judicial Council when incompetence or corruption seems to be the problem with a judge. In the movie Madea Goes to Jail (2009) two different judges handle the same case almost completely differently. In The Dark Knight (2008) a judge is murdered. The Pelican Brief (1993) suggests that being a judge can be a high risk profession. Star Chamber, Suspect, And Justice For All, The Guilty (2000), Judge Dredd are movies about judicial corruption in order of importance. Chicago 10 (2007) has Nick Nolte as a very strange judge, whose rulings are almost all overturned. The Supreme Court One Nation Under Law (2007), The Supreme Court (2007), Thurgood Marshall: Justice for All, A Stranger in Town (1943), Separate But Equal (1991)(TV) are about judges or justices! THE TRUTH MAY BE IN SOME CASES IT MAY BE ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND AN UNBIASED JUDGE. THIS IS WHY THE MEDIA IS ALLOWED TO COVER CASES. HOWEVER, THERE STILL IS NOT ENOUGH CAMERAS IN THE COURTROOMS. LITTLE INDICATIONS OFTEN EXIST THAT SHOW A JURIST IS HAVING A HARD TIME WITH A CASE, SUCH AS CALLING IT LAST, NOT CALLING OR ORDER IN THE COURT, LOSING THE FILE, NOT LISTENING TO BOTH SIDES, OR NOT EVEN MAKING A RULING! SOMETIMES, A CASE CAN BE MOVED TO THE FEDERAL COURT, TO A DIFFERENT VENUE or to join another similar case with a different judge by consolidation or Relating cases, OR THE JUDGE CAN BE DISQUALIFIED, BUT RARELY FOR BIAS OR CORRUPTION. U.S. District Court Judge John Joseph Sirica (1904-1992) stood up to U. S. President Nixon regarding the Watergate trials by fining him $25,000 and $50,000 for each day the presidential tapes were not produced! THIS WAS LIKELY ONE OF THE MOST INTELLEGENT AND INDEPENENT ACTS OF ANY JUDGE IN HISTORY. HOWEVER, THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA RARELY SHOWS EITHER ACTIVIST OR DISCRESIONARY POWER OF THE AVERAGE JUDGE! Flash of Genius (2008), I Am Sam (2001), Class Action (1991), Runaway Jury (2003), Primal Fear (1996), The Devil's Advocate (1997), Michael Clayton (2008); ...And Justice for All (1979); Intolerable Cruelty (2003); The Firm (1993), The Client (1994), The Rainmaker (1997), The Chamber (1996), The Gingerbread Man (1998), Philadelphia, Presumed Innocent, Music Box, Amistad, Time to Kill (1996), The Pelican Brief (1993), Rampage (1988), Kramer vs. Kramer, The Verdict, A Few Good Men, Cry in the Dark, To Kill a Mockingbird, 12 Angry Men, Witness for the Prosecution, Anatomy of a Murder, In Cold Blood, Judgment at Nuremberg are courtroom dramas! Find Me Guilty (2006), Justice Denied (1989) are also interesting. Liar Liar, My Cousin Vinny and Legally Blonde are comedies. THE PERRY MASON SERIES LIKELY IS STILL INTERESTING.
