Justice James Marchiano’s Legal Fiction

Many noteworthy trials have taken place in the courtrooms of the A.F. Bray Courthouse in Martinez, California. Justice James Marchiano (retired) presided there for many years and has fictionalized some of those cases to fit the themes of punishment, mental illness, ethics, and incarceration in our justice system. These stories originally appeared in the Contra Costa Lawyer magazine, and we are proud that Justice Marchiano has shared these with us now.
