This is another great title in the name of tearing down our American myths. Gerry Spence, a hall of fame lawyer with 35 years of experience, boldly sets forth how there is no justice for anyone except the ultra rich.

The book is told in two parts. Part one "Justice For None" underlines what's wrong with our law schools, lawyers, judges, and juries. He draws from cases, some of which he was the lawyer, to show how ordinary people victimized by corporate crime and medical malpractice are constantly
Read this awhile ago, 1992 I think and recall it being quite good at the time. He's opinionated and as he is known to do makes a good case for his thoughts and writes intelleigently and persuasively. I had never heard of Gerry Spence until this was recommended by a friend. Glad I read it.
