Summary:
They are sworn to uphold the law, and given stunning power over people's lives. But as charges of bias, corruption and incompetence erupt in headlines across the nation, the integrity of judges and the legal system is called into question. Are bad judges the exception to the rule or do they represent serious flaws in the system? INVESTIGATIVE REPORTS examines some of the most famous recent cases, including that of former New York State Chief Judge Sol Wachtler, who has become the symbol of judicial misconduct. In a rare interview, Wachtler tells his side of the story, while New York reporters and state officials trace the series of revelations that led to Wachtler's downfall. See why it is so difficult for law enforcement to crack down on bad judges, and meet people who they have victimized. And in chilling interviews, officials from Americans for Legal Reform and The Center for Judicial Accountability reveal the shocking extent of this problem. BAD JUDGEMENT asks a question that must be answered if the legal system is to survive - who judges the judges?
