In The Sleeping Juror, Sam Crosby provides not only an invaluable historical record of the courts of Baldwin County, Alabama, but a tale of hilarious antics that have taken place in those courts.
The judges and attorneys, both famous and infamous, who have made their appearance in Baldwin County over the years are in evidence here, making Crosby's well-researched account a must-read for local history buffs and collectors of courtroom humor both in the county and throughout the state.
The author's respect for the court system and the legal profession is clear on every page. His writing reflects not only his keen sense of humour but more important, his true love of people and his full understanding of human nature. The ultimate value of this book is that it could serve as the saga of any legal system in any country in any state in the county.
The fact that all sales proceeds will be used by the Alabama Law Foundation to provide scholarships to Alabama students and to provide legal services to indigent Alabama citizens makes this work a particularly good investment for any reader.
