Love, divorce, sex, money, lies, videotapes, audio tapes, racism, and a nefarious cop put the LAPD on trial against a football legend. There was something sinister, something terribly frightening to capture a worldwide audience. This is a narrative of the most intriguing, unloved case in history. OJ Simpson's biggest supporters were, and are still, African-Americans; more specifically, black women! Who could enjoy this saga as the average bi-racial housewife living, on the east coast, yet living a parallel to the Hall of Fame icon? The 'obstruction' consisted of the surreptitious rulings and tainted evidence which influenced the triumphs and tragedies, and prevented OJ's vindication in the public eye. Learn why he is still seen by many as the Brentwood butcher, and how public criticism has crumbled his private world, including his children, who are torn between love and security. Hear how the jurors survived 266 days of sequestration while OJ was incarcerated for 465 days. Would OJ's and Nicole's families recoil in harmony? In a climate of hatred, a cloud of opinions under an umbrella of racism -- did the trial divide or educate those naive to accusations and despair?

Issues of legal philosophy taught in jurisprudence courses have been pondered by brilliant fiction writers. This anthology brings together forty law-related short stories by writers from various times and places, including Boccaccio, Hawthorne, Tolstoy, Kafka, Cather, and Asimov. Divided into five parts--Establishing Laws, The Judicial System, Punishment, Criminal Matters, and Civil Matters--and additional subsections, the stories demonstrate how writers have dealt with topics such as equality, finding the truth, capital punishment, murder, and domestic relations. The section introductions draw upon philosophy, psychology, literature, and law to point to the jurisprudential issues, and also utilize pithy epigraphs for this purpose. Questions are raised, but not answered: the reader is left to reflect on the age-old legal and ethical concerns that continue to trouble and inspire us. This anthology has the ambitious purpose of bringing law in literature to the general public, to practicing attorneys, to students in English or philosophy courses, and to law school students in law and literature courses. Elizabeth Villiers Gemmette has chosen a widely accessible, yet diverse narrative voice. For readers who wish to delve further into the fascinating world of law through literature, the volume concludes with lists of law-related fiction and films.
