As the U.S. Supreme Court wraps up another session, our country's attention focuses on a the possible replacement for Sandra Day O'Connor, one of the very few Supreme Court Justices who has had any experience as a trial judge.
Her replacement may very well be another individual who has never sat on a trial bench and seen firsthand what the U.S. Supreme Court has done to the law of this country. A recent publication, Paragon House's The Fraternity, written by an experienced trial and appellate judge, John Fitzgerald Molloy, explains and illustrates the tremendous power of these nine personages. It explains how lawyers, appointed to the bench, have taken over the law-making of this country in order to create a legal system in which the best lawyer wins.
Molloy's book, The Fraternity, gives the reader fascinating insights into how our legal system developed in order to make lawyers more powerful. The book traces this metamorphosis through the life of Judge Molloy, going all the way back to his own fatherÂs law career. It also follows MolloyÂs own career, as a trial and appellate judge, and as the head of a money-making law firm.
Judge Molloy's book illustrates how the courts used to fairly operate, before the ÂFraternityÂ Â the lawyers and judges of this country Â changed the laws, tipping the power scale toward the lawyers. The story is told by presenting the facts in several different cases.
Republican Senator John McCain calls Molloy's observations "beneficial and illuminating", while retired Senator Dennis DeConcini says they "tread on sacred ground.Â DeConcini praises the integrity of Molloy's whistle-blowing and endorses the book as giving an insightful and scholarly analysis of the way that lawyers and judges have turned our judicial system into a financially lucrative "business" that no longer serves the best interests of the American public.
