The Santa Clara All-Stars Retry Clarence Darrow

A group of all star lawyers and judges will re-enact People v. Clarence Darrow, as part of the University of Santa Clara School of Law centennial celebration. 

Chief Judge of the 9th Circuit Alex Kozinski will play Judge George Hutton. Defense Attorney Michael Tigar will be Darrow's defense attorney Earl Rogers. 9th Circuit Judge Stephen Trott will take on the role of John Fredericks, prosecutor and politician. The juicy role of Clarence Darrow goes to U.S. District Court Judge Charles Breyer (yes, brother of the Supreme Court Justice).

More here at the School's website, and here, on the trial, by the Honorable Robert L. Gottsfield.
