Emma Chase, New York Times bestselling author of the Tangled series, returns with the first installment of the Legal Briefs series! A Washington, DC, defense attorney, Stanton Shaw keeps his head cool, his questions sharp, and his arguments irrefutable. They don’t call him the Jury Charmer for nothing—with his southern drawl, disarming smile, and captivating green eyes, he’s a hard man to say no to. Men want to be him, and women want to be thoroughly cross examined by him. Stanton’s a man with a plan. And for a while, life was going according to that plan. Until the day he receives an invitation to the wedding of his high school sweetheart, the mother of his beloved ten-year-old daughter. Jenny is getting married—to someone who isn’t him. That's definitely not part of the plan. *** Sofia Santos is a city-raised, no-nonsense litigator who plans to become the most revered criminal defense attorney in the country. She doesn’t have time for relationships or distractions. But when Stanton, her "friend with mind-blowing benefits," begs her for help, she finds herself out of her element, out of her depth, and obviously out of her mind. Because she agrees to go with him to The-Middle-Of-Nowhere, Mississippi, to do all she can to help Stanton win back the woman he loves. Her head tells her she's crazy...and her heart says something else entirely. What happens when you mix a one-stop-light town, two professional arguers, a homecoming queen, four big brothers, some Jimmy Dean sausage, and a gun-toting Nana? The Bourbon flows, passions rise, and even the best-laid plans get overruled by the desires of the heart.

Should the Supreme Court defer to the will of the majority and uphold most democratically enacted laws? Or does the Constitution empower the Supreme Court to protect a broad range of individual rights from the reach of lawmakers? In this timely and provocative book, Damon Root traces the long war over judicial activism and judicial restraint from its beginnings in the bloody age of slavery, the Civil War, and Reconstruction to its central role in today's blockbuster legal battles over gay rights, gun control, and health care reform. It's a conflict that cuts across the political spectrum in surprising ways and makes for some unusual bedfellows. Judicial deference is not only a touchstone of the Progressive left, for example, it is also a philosophy adopted by many members of the modern right. Today's growing camp of libertarians, however, has no patience with judicial restraint and little use for majority rule. They want the courts and judges to police the other branches of government, and expect Justices to strike down any state or federal law that infringes on their bold constitutional agenda of personal and economic freedom. Overruled is the story of two competing visions, each one with its own take on what role the government and the courts should play in our society, a fundamental debate that goes to the very heart of our constitutional system.

"Every leader in America needs to read this book! It's by far the best summary of what's at stake." —Rick Warren The Supreme Court has issued a decision, but that doesn't end the debate. Now that the Supreme Court has ruled, Americans face momentous debates about the nature of marriage and religious liberty. Because the Court has redefined marriage in all 50 states, we have to energetically protect our freedom to live according to conscience and faith as we work to rebuild a strong marriage culture. In the first book to respond to the Supreme Court's decision on same-sex marriage, Ryan Anderson draws on the best philosophy and social science to explain what marriage is, why it matters for public policy, and the consequences of its legal redefinition. Attacks on religious liberty--predicated on the bogus equation of opposition to same-sex marriage with racism--have already begun, and modest efforts in Indiana and other states to protect believers' rights have met with hysterics from media and corporate elites. Anderson tells the stories of innocent citizens who have been coerced and penalized by the government and offers a strategy to protect the natural right of religious liberty. Anderson reports on the latest research on same-sex parenting, filling it out with the testimony of children raised by gays and lesbians. He closes with a comprehensive roadmap on how to rebuild a culture of marriage, with work to be done by everyone. The nation's leading defender of marriage in the media and on university campuses, Ryan Anderson has produced the must-read manual on where to go from here. There are reasonable and compelling arguments for the truth about marriage, but too many of our neighbors haven't heard them. Truth is never on "the wrong side of history," but we have to make the case. We will decide which side of history we are on.

Since the mid-1970s, Congress has passed hundreds of overrides—laws that explicitly seek to reverse or modify judicial interpretations of statutes. Whether front-page news or not, overrides serve potentially vital functions in American policy-making. Federal statutes—and court cases interpreting them—often require revision. Some are ambiguous, some conflict, and others are obsolete. Under these circumstances, overrides promise Congress a means to repair flawed statutes, reconcile discordant court decisions, and reverse errant judicial interpretations. Overrides also allow dissatisfied litigants to revisit issues and raise concerns in Congress that courts have overlooked. Of course, promising is one thing and delivering is quite another. Accordingly, this book asks: Do overrides, in fact, effectively clarify the law, reverse objectionable judicial statutory interpretations, and broaden deliberation on contested issues? The answers provide new insights into the complex role of overrides in U.S. policy-making and in the politics of contemporary court-Congress relations.

My previous "True Crime" books were based on interviews with persons who either suffered grave misfortunes, or were forced to live horrid lives due to the acts of others. As such, I always played the role of first a listener, then a reporter. But not so in this book, where I found myself to be the all-too-real target of a group of highly successful, "professional" extortionists. They first relied on the safety of operating from multiple jurisdictions -- four states. According to the FBI this was their protective barrier. But they further enjoyed hiding behind the safety veneers of their professions--two being lawyers, five being Wall Street Bankers and two are NJ insurance brokers. This gang first forges a near-million-dollar loan in their target's name. Once completed they begin their many extortion tactics. Then if not immediately successful, they file against their targets in the same Minneapolis courtroom of their tenth gang member, a U.S. Federal Judge.For years this group has stolen millions from their senior targets as law enforcement -- including the FBI, city & state Bar Associations and Attorney Generals -- only watched. In my case each agency told me it could do nothing, so long as my attackers continued to operate from multiple jurisdictions and sought less than $1,000,000 -- in my case $941,083, just $59,000 less than the amount required. I spent nearly $300,000 for my defense attorneys and the necessary document examinations of two leading forensic scientists -- each of whom proved that over 40 forgeries existed within the evidence against me. But it mattered not, as my evidence was necessarily negated by their judge, and I was quickly found guilty of non-payment of their bogus loan. This was not at all surprising, as the judge had told me from the outset: "I don't want to see you in my courtroom. You need to pay your accusers the $650,000 they have graciously agreed to accept." She then followed her warning statements by denying each of our Requests for Summary Judgment. Then at our pretrial meeting, with she and my accusers, came her most damaging act. She eliminated 15 pieces of our evidence, claiming none had been a part of our earlier-submitted evidence packets. My accusers hurriedly concurred, and despite our objections, half of our evidence was eliminated just minutes before the start of the trial; rendering my specially prepared presentation cards useless, as all now contained parts of this newly-discarded evidence. Later, following my forensic scientist's testimony, this judge chose to further reinforce the objections of my accusers. She told the jurors to: "Ignore the testimony of Mr. Hood's forensic scientist and the intimated proof of there being over forty forgeries in their evidence." She continued by saying: "What they call 'forgeries' are simply copies, necessary parts of all financial documents. As the plaintiffs told you, this stems from it being impossible to gather all necessary signers at once." Naturally our many objections were hastily OVERRULED. That said, I was quickly found guilty and forced to take bankruptcy to avoid paying the bogus loan of my accusers. This gang had ruined my life, and for the two years since my trial, and the four years that preceded it, I have spent countless hours pleading my case to the FBI, the Attorney Generals and Bar Associations of the five states from which my accusers still operate. Although responses were rare, all came with the common greeting: "Sorry Charlie, there's nothing we can do." So with this book I am changing course. I am now relying on "The Power of the Pen" to prove my innocence. I am including all of my evidence, that which the judge tossed and that which she allowed. Included therein are the two loan documents at the center of my trial. One is for $54,950 and one is for $941,083; both are signed with identical copies of my signature. I am asking that you, the reader, serve as the judge of my appeal. Thank you.
