Sister Bay/Liberty Grove - Judge Charlie Schudson (Independence Corrupted)

Independence corruptedWe will be hosting northern door local, Judge Charlie Schudson, for an author talk of his informational/educational behind the scenes memoir being published this fall by UWPress called Indepenence Corrupted: How America's Judges Make Their Decisions.

With experience as both a trial and appellate judge, Charles Benjamin Schuderson knows the burdens on judges. With engaging candor, he takes readers behind the bench to probe judicial minds analyzing actual trials and sentencings — of abortion protestors, murderers, sex predators, white supremacists, and others. He takes us into chambers to hear judges forging appellate decisions about life and death, multimillion-dollar damages, and priceless civil rights. And , most significantly, he exposes the financial, political, personal, and professional pressures that threaten judicial ethics and independence. As political attacks on judges increase, Schudson calls for reforms to protect judicial independence and for vigilance to ensure justice for all.
