InJustice, the documentary film about greed and corruption in America’s lawsuit industry, is coming to Fondren. This feature length documentary features Mississippians Alan Lange, Tom Dawson, Jerry Mitchell, Johnny Jones, Charlie Merkel, Fred Krutz and Danny Mulholland discussing the Scruggs scandal. InJustice will be screened at Duling Hall tomorrow night at 7:30 p.m. during Fondren after Five. This event is free and open to the public.
In this first-ever, feature-length film about the American legal system, InJustice showcases how the class action lawsuit, born from the Civil Rights Act of 1964, was skillfully managed by a small group of trial attorneys. It tells of how they manipulated legal rules and procedures — and even their own clients — to become an international enterprise that rivals the scope and profits of Fortune 500 corporations.
“We’re excited to be bringing InJustice to Jackson because it is so important that this story be told,” said Brian Kelly, producer of InJustice. “The film takes a shockingly candid look-under-the-hood of the law-suit-for-profit business, revealing scams and abuses if power that should astonish and alarm us all.”
The story telling in the film is distinctive – using the experiences, attitudes and voices of the victims and trial attorneys. InJustice is a narrative largely told by lawyers in their own words about what is wrong with America’s lawsuit system and who’s to blame.
