»Ich sah es in den Nachrichten. Nacht. Gebüsch. Wasser, verschwommene Lichter, ein Hubschrauber. Männer mit Warnwesten und Schutzhelmen. Hier war etwas Entsetzliches passiert..« Robert Farquharson bekommt sein Leben einfach nicht auf die Reihe. Seit einiger Zeit lebt er getrennt von seiner Familie. Am Abend des Vatertags im Jahr 2005 fährt er die drei Söhne zurück zuseiner Exfrau Cindy, als sein Wagen von der Straße abkommt und in einen See stürzt. Nur er kann sich aus dem Auto befreien ... Tragischer Unfall oder Racheakt – diese Frage wird die australische Justiz und Öffentlichkeit in den folgenden Jahren beschäftigen – und sie wird für Helen Garner geradezu zur Obsession. Sie verfolgt den Prozess durch alle Instanzen und erzählt die Geschichte eines Mannes und seines kaputten Leben und das unerhörte und unvorhersehbare Gerichts-Drama auf der Suche nach Gerechtigkeit.

Excerpt: Meredith Kercher, a British university exchange student from Coulsdon, south London, was murdered in Perugia, Italy, on 1 November 2007. Kercher, aged 21 at the time of her death, was found dead on the floor of her bedroom with stab wounds to the throat. Some of her belongings were missing, including cash, two credit cards, two mobile phones, and her house keys. Rudy Guede, an Ivory Coast native raised in Perugia, was convicted in October 2008 of having sexually assaulted and murdered Kercher, and was sentenced to 30 years, reduced on appeal to 16 years in December 2009. Also tried were Amanda Knox, an American exchange student and flatmate of Kercher, and Knox's then-boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, an Italian student. Knox and Sollecito were convicted on charges of sexual assault and murder in December 2009, and sentenced to 26 and 25 years respectively. Their convictions were overturned on appeal in October 2011 by a panel of six jurors and two judges. In an official statement of their grounds for overturning the convictions the judges wrote there was a "material non-existence" of evidence to support the guilty verdicts at the trial. The appeal judges further stated that the prosecution's theory of an association between Sollecito, Knox and Guede was "not corroborated by any evidence" and "far from probable." The murder and subsequent events, ...

"The conventional wisdom says that most of Lincoln's practice involved collecting debt and representing railroads; that he only practiced law as a platform for his political career; that criminal law was only a minuscule part of his practice; and that he was particularly bad at defending homicide cases. A survey of Lincoln's murder cases demonstrates that he was first and foremost a trial lawyer, that the trial of criminal cases was an important part of his practice, and that he was not only a very good criminal trial lawyer, he was very capable of defending murder cases. Dekle devotes a chapter to each of Lincoln's well-documented criminal cases, paying particular attention to homicide cases. He consolidates cases for which we have little reference material into a single chapter and ends with an overall assessment of Lincoln as a criminal trial lawyer"--

Though trials in open court suggest impartiality, White Justice in Arizona reveals how, time and again, the judicial system of nineteenth-century Arizona denied Apaches justice. The Captain Jack, Gonshayee, Apache Kid, "Carlisle Kid," and Batdish murder cases offer a sad, compelling commentary on injustice for Native Americans. That these trials all ended in Apache convictions, Clare V. McKanna Jr. argues, proves the unfairness of applying the American legal tradition to a culture that lived by very different social and legal codes. Conquered and forced from their lands by white outsiders, Apa.
