In a crowded courtroom in Mississippi, a jury returns a shocking verdict against a chemical company accused of dumping toxic waste into a small town's water supply, causing the worst "cancer cluster" in history. The company appeals to the Mississippi Supreme Court, whose nine justices will one day have the final say. Who are the nine? How will they vote? Can one be replaced before the case is ultimately decided?
With judicial elections looming, Carl Trudeau, the billionaire owner of the chemical company, decides to purchase a seat on the Court. His political operatives recruit a young, unsuspecting candidate. They finance him, manipulate him, and mould him into a potential Supreme Court justice. Their Supreme Court justice.
The Appeal is a powerful and timely story of political and legal intrigue that will leave listeners unable to think about the American judicial system in the same way ever again.
