Third Courting Justice Town Hall

Courting Justice  follows a town hall format that invites state supreme, appellate, and trial court judges to step down from the bench and listen to new perspectives on how the state courts can better deliver justice for all.

Supported by SJI and the National Center for State Courts (NCSC), airing on PBS and hosted by acclaimed journalist Tavis Smiley, Courting Justice is on a cross-country tour, engaging the public and judges in a conversation about the courts.

From litigants to public defenders, families of the incarcerated to prosecutors, multiple voices have shared their concerns and real-world solutions on how to rebuild the public trust in our judiciary.
The most recent episode was taped in Cleveland, Ohio, on December 8, 2016, and is now available online.¬† Panelists included: Ohio Chief Justice Maureen O’Connor; Cleveland Municipal Court Judge Ronald Adrine; Lakewood Judge Patrick Carroll; and, Former Ohio Supreme Court Justice Yvette McGee.
