TEDTalks: Victoria Pratt—How Judges Can Show Respect

In halls of justice around the world, how can we ensure everyone is treated with dignity and respect? A pioneering judge in New Jersey, Victoria Pratt shares her principles of "procedural justice"—four simple, thoughtful steps that redefined the everyday business of her courtroom in Newark, changing lives along the way. "When the court behaves differently, naturally people respond differently," Pratt says. "We want people to enter our halls of justice ... and know that justice will be served there."

Bill Moyers Journal: Justice for Sale

This edition of the Journal takes a hard look at how campaign cash in judicial elections could prejudice America’s courts as it revisits the 1999 Frontline special “Justice for Sale.” Afterward, Bill Moyers is joined by legal analyst and journalist Jeffrey Toobin to talk about the boost that has been given to the unwholesome relationship between big money and judicial elections by the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent Citizens United decision. The program concludes with an essay on the increasing cohabitation of state and corporate power and the likely eventual result of that association: nothing less than the corporate takeover of democracy. Broadcast date: February 19, 2010. (57 minutes)

Indecent Liberties

In 1994 convicted child rapist Jesse Timmendaquas moved into a New Jersey suburb with two other ex-cons after serving his sentence. Soon after, he raped and murdered seven-year-old Megan Kanka who lived across the street. The crime shocked America and Megan's mother began an immediate campaign claiming her daughter's killer was a time bomb left ticking in their midst. Megan's Law, signed by President Bill Clinton in May 1996, requires authorities to notify schools and neighbors when released sex offenders move in to their area. While Jesse Timmendaquas is in prison awaiting trial, Megan's Law is currently being fought in the courts on a constitutional basis.
