A well known judge of the U.S. District Courts, under whose jurisdiction many famous cases have been tried, writes his memoirs. He comes from a legal family; he earned his way through college by acting as local Justice of the Peace. After some home town (Waynesburg, Penna.) experience, he came to New York, where most of his professional life has been spent. The survey of his most interesting -- and varied types of cases; the careful research and study that went into preparing for them, make fascinating reading, even for the utter neophyte in the field of law.
