Lady Justice

CHICAGO, IL – Some of the nation’s most prominent activist attorneys in the movement to expose wrongful convictions will discuss how police and prosecutors tipped the scales of justice in the case of North Carolina novelist Michael Peterson, whose trial was the subject of the recent Netflix hit series The Staircase, and in the cases of Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey, whose convictions were the subject of the 10-episode “Making a Murderer” Netflix documentary series.

 

Attorneys David Rudolf from “The Staircase and Jerry Buting from “Making a Murderer” will speak at Lincoln Hall, 2424 N. Lincoln Ave in Chicago at 8 PM on Sunday, September 9.  The discussion will be moderated by Professor Steven Drizin of Northwestern University’s Pritzker School of Law, one of the leading experts in the country on the causes of wrongful convictions.

Rudolf and Buting will provide “behind the scenes” insights into how police and prosecutors tipped the scales of justice in their efforts to convict Michael Peterson, Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey. They will also take questions from the audience and discuss the important criminal justice issues raised in these true-crime documentaries.
