about this item

Erle Stanley Gardner devoted thousands of hours to a project called "The Court of Last Resort." This project, which he undertook with his many friends in the forensic, legal, and investigative communities, sought to review and, if appropriate, to reverse, miscarriages of justice against possibly innocent criminal defendants. These defendants' cases were examined for causes originally convicted owing to poor legal representation; or to the inadequate, careless or malicious actions of police and prosecutors; or most especially, because of the abuse or misinterpretation of medical and other forensic evidence. The resulting 1952 book earned Gardner his only Edgar Award, in the Best Fact Crime category.

Genre: True Crime, Biography + Autobiography, Freedom + Security / Law Enforcement
