As the size and reach of the American regulatory state have grown, so have the legal structures that legislators have set in place under administrative law, including breathtaking powers of enforcement without due process. Americans like to assume that their constitutional rights take precedence and that, with court supervision, there is a check on the intrusion into our lives by abusive government officials.
A Court Without Justice demonstrates how wrong these assumptions are. It is a jaw-dropping revelation regarding a virtually unknown parallel universe of extra-legal law, in which lives and businesses can be—and are—ravaged while the courts turn a blind eye to the trampling of constitutional rights. The aim of this book is not merely to describe and document a particular instance of injustice, but to uncover a problem in our system of law and government and provide solutions to it.
