Format

Summary
Though a landmark Supreme Court decision 50 years ago established the right of criminal defendants to legal representation-even if they can't afford it-the scales of the American legal system still tilt heavily in favor of the white and wealthy. In this edition of Moyers & Company, Bill sits down with civil rights attorney and legal scholar Bryan Stevenson, who exposes the legal system's failures and its ongoing struggles at the crossroads of race, class, and justice. Also, journalists Martin Clancy and Tim O'Brien talk about inequities in death row legal representation and sentencing across the country. The program closes with an essay on the hypocrisy of "justice for all" in a society where billions are squandered for a war born in fraud while the poor are pushed aside.
