1:30 a.m.   Unexpected Justice: The Rise of John Paul Stevens

During the long, hot Chicago summer of 1969, a scandal erupted that rocked the highest levels of the Illinois judiciary. Two state Supreme Court justices, including the chief justice, were accused of accepting bribes in exchange for a favorable decision in a case before the bench. The investigation that followed exposed the casual corruption of the state’s legal leadership, and launched the public career of a modest, bow-tied, Chicago antitrust lawyer named John Paul Stevens. Improbably, Stevens’s work on what many assumed could be a career-killing case led to his appointment as a federal appeals court judge, and ultimately, his distinguished, thirty-five year tenure on the United States Supreme Court. Narrated by actor Peter Coyote.
