Truth on Trial [electronic resource]

Loading...
A panel of American jurists, a philosopher, and a newspaper editor discuss whether the purpose of a trial is to discover the truth, to achieve justice, or a means of carrying on a private dispute. They also consider whether the trial lawyer is responsible only to his client, or if he has a duty to the court, to the opposition, and to the public. Finally, they discuss what is owed to the public that is affected by the trial, but is not part of it. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, Judge Robert Merhige, attorneys Floyd Abrams and Stanley Chesley, philosopher John Smith, and others debate civil litigation's ethical dilemmas.
