    Unexpected Justice: The Rise of John Paul Stevens During the long, hot Chicago summer of 1969, a scandal erupted that rocked the highest levels of the Illinois judiciary. Two state Supreme Court justices, including the chief justice, were accused of accepting bribes in exchange for a favorable decision in a case before the bench. The investigation that followed exposed the casual corruption of the state's legal leadership, and launched the public career of a modest, bow-tied, Chicago antitrust lawyer named John Paul Stevens. Improbably, Stevens's work on what many assumed could be a career-killing case led to his appointment as a federal appeals court judge, and ultimately, his distinguished, thirty-five year tenure on the United States Supreme Court. Narrated by actor Peter Coyote. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)
  • 5:30 am

  • 6:00 am
    Balancing The Scales This film provides an insightful look at the story of female lawyers in America. It chronicles pioneering attorneys, including twins Ruby and Ruth Crawford (who first began practicing law in the 1940s), as well as contemporary stories detailing the challenges that women in the legal profession still face today. Through interviews conducted over the past 20 years with Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and her daughter, Columbia law professor Jane Ginsburg; civil rights attorney Gloria Allred and her daughter, attorney and media figure Lisa Bloom; State Supreme Court and Appellate Court Justices; as well as female equity partners, women of color, young associates, and law-school students - the documentary examines a range of topics from discrimination and work/life balance to what it takes to become a partner in today's law firms. It also explores the persistent cultural bias that childcare is primarily a woman's role, and societal views about the value of care-giving vs. the value of professional careers. duration 56:42   STEREO TVG

Meanwhile in the same hospital, 5-year-old Chealsey Melendez is diagnosed with stage-4 cancer.
