Matt Crawford speaks to Judge Thomas Moukawsher about his book, The Common Flaw: Needless Complexity in the Courts and 50 Ways to Reduce It. Americans are losing faith in our governmental institutions and the courts are at the top of that list. Extreme delays force judges to drop cases or force litigants to settle instead of getting the justice they believe they deserve. This creates a cycle or ineffective and unjust law practices that all parties, including the judges and lawyers fail to understand. The Common Flaw steps into the fray to try and show us what needs to happen and why. With an approach that the layperson can understand Judge Moukawsher lays out a simple blueprint for us to fix and gain trust in our justice system again.
