This investigative series details numerous ethical and criminal violations by lawyers that have resulted in little or no punishment because of a state Supreme Court that acts more as a shield for bad lawyers than as a protector of the public. In one instance, the state Supreme Court, under the cloak of one of the nation's strictest secrecy codes for lawyer discipline, tried and sentenced a citizen in secret for revealing that he filed a complaint about a lawyer. The Supreme Court did not inform the citizen of his rights, and did not even provide him with an attorney. (April 8 - Oct. 17, 1995)
