The Fix: The Corruption of Massachusetts' Courts and Agencies
What does the contamination of a small town's lake by the negligence of the Massachusetts Department of Correction have to do with President George W. Bush's election and re-election, Congressman William Delahunt's first election, Massachusetts Governors Bill Weld's and Paul Cellucci's quests for ambassadorships, Massachusetts Attorney Generals Scott Harshbarger's and Tom Reilly's tunnel vision, the politicized Massachusetts judiciary, the St. Patrick's Day parade in South Boston, "same-sex" unions, a corrupt FBI agent named John Morris, federal judge Mark Wolf and federal prosecutors Donald Stern and Fred Wyshak? This book says what!

This book should be REQUIRED reading for every law student in the state of Massachusetts. They need to know what they are in for when they practice law in the Massachusetts courts, - and it's nothing like what is being taught in law schools. This book is not a legal thriller; it's structured as a legally documented expose`, but stick with it and you will be SHOCKED at just how far things can go when members of this (uniquely self-regulating profession) are allowed to create false records, intentionally misapply the law, and give a green light to criminal behavior instead This book is not a thrilling page-turner, but it successfully exposes just how evil, shameless, and corrupted the Massachusetts legal community has become: it's actually Orwellian. I don't agree with the political slant of the authors (I'm liberal, the authors are conservatives) but politics aside, going straight to the issue of what really happens to far too many citizens expecting integrity or oversight in the Massachusetts courts, it's an extremely important book. Due to the importance of what gets exposed, I give it 5 stars.
