Footnote Four

A collection of thoughts on Law and Politics and how small, seemingly unimportant things (like footnotes) can become large and important vehicles for historical transformation (like the infamous Footnote Four).

New Legal Show on CBS

For part of CBS's new fall lineup, they are preparing a pilot based on Kermit Roosevelt's book, "In the Shadow of the Law". Roosevelt, a law professor at UPenn, is a former Supreme Court clerk and a great storyteller. As someone who has read this book, I can say that I'm genuinely looking forward to the pilot and hope that the show gets picked up.

Joshua Jackson (of Dawson's Creek fame) is going to be playing the main character Mark Clayton, an associate at a fictional D.C. law firm. The show seems to be reminiscent of "The Practice" but set for a younger audience and at a large firm as opposed to a small one.

Hopefully Professor Roosevelt's second book will be as good as his first.
