by Eugene W. Hickok
This text aims to demystify the US judicial process and its essential place in democracy - a place where law transcends the passions and politics of the moment, but also one where justice cannot always prevail. Through an analysis of an important child-abuse case, DeShaney v. Winnebago County, the authors reveal the important aspects of judicial power, including the relationship between procedure and substance, and, ultimately, the limits of the demands of justice under the rule of law.
