The Case Against Lawyers : Visiting the United States in the mid-1850s, Frenchman Alexis de Tocqueville feared that Americans had ceded their own decision making to a lawyer-controlled authority. Court TV's Catherine Crier thinks that the current state of American justice fulfills de Tocqueville's dire prediction. A former lawyer and judge herself, Crier marshals arguments to prove that our litigation-crazed society feeds lawyers and starves the supposed recipients of billion-dollar judgments. This powerful brief makes ideal jury duty reading.
