Publisher Comments:

Chilling and gripping, Judge Mojo tells the incredible true story of a mentally unstable judge who became obsessed with destroying Thomas F. Liotti, a high-profile criminal defense attorney.

Liotti relates how Judge B. Marc Mogil suffered from bipolar disorder but refused to take his medication and started referring to himself as Judge Mojo. What began as a simple dispute between the two men soon turned into a full-fledged obsession on the part of Judge Mogil. He threatened Liotti's life and that of his family, stalking him over the Internet and through bar associations until Liotti's life resembled a walking nightmare.

As Judge Mogil's illness remained untreated, his outrageous claims of being a concert pianist and of the ability to fly F-14 fighter jets continued. But it wasn't until he was removed from the bench and disbarred that the damage of his rule became apparent. Liotti objectively shows how the judicial system failed to remove Mogil from his position in the midst of several allegations against him, creating misery for attorneys and clients and pessimism for the system itself.

Through an intriguing mix of legal history, personal insight, and hard facts, Liotti chronicles his bizarre saga and speaks to the abusive power of one judge's corruption.

This fascinating and frightening book chronicles the brave struggle of a prominent civil rights attorney to fight back against a terrorist in black robes. Judge Mojo provides a terrifying look at what happens when the Judge is angry, armed and psychotic. A must-read for every law student and every student of the law.

-Ronald L. Kuby Renowned Civil Rights Attorney, Media Talk Show Host and Commentator
