Episode 7: The One Where Award Winning Journalist Dan Levine Reports That The "Public" Court System is Less Public Than We All Thought Non-Compliant

    • Society & Culture

In past episodes, we have explored the under-reported inner workings of high stakes plaintiff’s law. This time, we have the perspective of one of the nation’s top journalists. Reuters reporter Dan Levine comes on the show to discuss his award-winning series, “Hidden Justice.” Based on a systematic review of some of the major cases of the day, Dan’s reporting concludes that the court system often seals from public view facts that directly impact the health and safety of our citizens. Dan argues that, instead of shining a light on issues ranging from cars with rollover problems, to prescription medication that have life threatening side effects, key court documents revealing these issues often aren’t made publicly available for years (if ever). Who, if anyone, shares responsibility for this? And will proposed federal legislation fix this? Tune in for an exciting discussion.
