In Justice in the Age of Judgement, Anne Bremner and Doug Bremner take us inside some of the biggest cases of recent times and offer their expert, thought-provoking insights and analysis as our legal system faces unprecedented forces fighting to tip the scales of justice their way. Why couldn’t prosecutors convict O.J. Simpson despite all of the evidence seemingly proving he killed his wife Nicole? Could a jury remain unbiased in the face of overwhelming public pressure in the trial of Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin for the murder of George Floyd? Why was Kyle Rittenhouse exonerated after shooting three people (killing two) with an assault rifle at a violent rally despite widespread media reports seemingly proving his guilt, and national calls for his conviction? Justice in the Age of Judgement is an unparalleled and unflinching look at the captivating cases tried on Twitter and TV, where the burden of proof and fundamental legal tenet of “innocent until proven guilty” is under assault from the court of public opinion.
A Note From the Publisher
Illustrated by Brian Peterson
“Anne Bremner, my longtime friend and colleague, is a trial lawyer through and through! In Justice in the Age of Judgement,
Anne takes you on a true-life, high-speed roller coaster of life in the courtroom. We ‘camped out’ at many courtrooms, never missing a minute of courtroom action, then nearly came to blows on air over our VERY DIFFERENT ANALYSIS! Anne Bremner weaves a narrative of what REALLY happened in and out of court on some of the most high-profile cases such as Tot Mom
Casey Anthony, Michael Jackson, and more, as only a true trial lawyer can! Tell it, Anne!”
—NANCY GRACE, legal analyst and television journalist
