Disrobed: An Inside Look at the Life and Work of a Federal Trial Judge is now available for pre-sale at the Westlaw Store. The book, co-published with the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, takes a rare and detailed behind-the-scenes look into the life and trials of a federal court judge as well as the man behind the robe, Judge Frederic Block.
Many people claim to have a sense of how our judicial system operates, but Disrobed sheds new light into this often mysterious branch of government, presided over by men and women who adhere to the traditional standard of judicial lock-jaw where nearly all of their communication with the world outside of their courtroom is through formal written opinions and scholarly journals. Breaking out of the traditional mold, Judge Block takes readers on his own personal journey to the bench, riddled with political potholes, and bares some of the most intimate details surrounding several landmark cases of our time.
Written for the general public, Disrobed offers readers a window into the private world of a sitting judge on one of the highest benches in one of the world’s most famous cities.
