Prosecutors and defense attorneys have it easy all they have to do is to present the evidence and make arguments. It's the judges who have the heavy lift: they are the ones who have to make the ultimate decisions, many of which have profound consequences on the lives of the people standing in front of them. In this book, judges from different kinds of courts in different parts of the country write about the case that proved most difficult for them to decide.
