About the Book

Please take your seat in the jury box. Justice in Your Court provides you the opportunity to decide fifty real court cases and then compare your “verdict” with the actual court ruling.

You decide if and when schools can host religious clubs, whether churchowned businesses can use “volunteers” to do the tasks paid employees also perform, if the police can view your property from a helicopter without a search warrant, what limitations the government can place on free speech, who was primarily negligent when a resident of a condominium building falls through the rooftop skylight, if a prisoner whose mental state is such that he can no longer remember the crime he committed should still be put to death, and many other controversial disputes.

Each of the fifty cases has an unexpected twist and provides the reader with both an entertaining and educational perspective of our judicial system.

About the Author

For thirty-five years Tom Borcher argued his clients’ cases before juries in the courts of California and Georgia. He retired in 2014 and moved to Huntsville, Alabama. In Justice in Your Court, he translates the excitement and drama of the courtroom to the written page.

His live program, You Be the Judge, has entertained and educated audiences, including adult continuing education classes, high school students, church groups and even a yearly presentation at the George H. W. Bush Presidential Library in College Station, Texas. The live program follows the same format as the case studies included in Justice in Your Court.

He served on the Board of Directors of the Southern California affiliate of the American Civil Liberties Union for many years, and was the president of its Hollywood Chapter at one time. He was a member of the Bar of the Supreme Court of the United States.
