Rudy Baker's world collapses when the law firm he was due to join is taken over. Suddenly, just before his bar examination, he is without employment and up to his neck in debt. His whole future hinges on his only two prospective clients. One is an eccentric old lady who claims to have a twenty million dollar fortune and wants a new will drafted. The other is a case against an insurance company who has denied a claim involving a young man dying of leukaemia. Donny Ray Black might have been saved if Great Benefit had paid out months ago, but now he has no hope. Both he and his mother want to bring Great Benefit to its knees and they choose Rudy, even though he has never argued a case in court. But this case is only the tip of the iceberg: there are hundreds of similar claims popping up all over the US. Soon Rudy finds himself facing the very legal firm whose takeover cost him his job, in a trial which threatens to blow the lid off one of the biggest cases of corporate fraud in America history. He is one young man against a battery of million dollar lawyers, and his opponents will do anything to stop him. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Beck.

The fascinating and very moving story of the lovers, lawyers, judges, and activists behind the groundbreaking Supreme Court case that led to one of the most important national civil rights victories in decades: the legalization of same-sex marriage. In June 2015, the Supreme Court made same-sex marriage the law in all 50 states in a decision as groundbreaking as Roe v Wade and Brown v Board of Education. Through insider accounts and access to key players, this definitive account reveals the dramatic and previously unreported events behind Obergefell v Hodges and the lives at its center. This is a story of law and love - and a promise made to a dying man who wanted to know how he would be remembered. Twenty years ago Jim Obergefell and John Arthur fell in love in Cincinnati, Ohio, a place where gays were routinely picked up by police and fired from their jobs. In 2013 the Supreme Court ruled that the federal government had to provide married gay couples all the benefits offered to straight couples. Jim and John - who was dying from ALS - flew to Maryland, where same-sex marriage was legal. But back home, Ohio refused to recognize their union or even list Jim's name on John's death certificate. Then they met Al Gerhardstein, a courageous attorney who had spent nearly three decades advocating for civil rights and who now saw an opening for the cause that few others had before him. This forceful and deeply affecting narrative - part Erin Brockovich, part Milk, part Still Alice - chronicles how this grieving man and his lawyer, against overwhelming odds, introduced the most important gay rights case in US history. It is an urgent and unforgettable account that will inspire listeners for many years to come. 1. Language: English. Narrator: George Newbern.

Bad Company and Burnt Powder, is a collection of 12 stories of when things turned "western" in the 19th century Southwest. Each chapter deals with a different character or episode in the wild west involving various lawmen, Texas Rangers, outlaws, feudists, vigilantes, lawyers, and judges. Covered herein are the stories of Cal Aten, John Hittson, the Millican boys, Gid Taylor, and Jim and Tom Murphy, Alf Rushing, Bob Meldrum and Noah Wilkerson, P. C. Baird, Gus Chenowth, Jim Dunaway, John Kinney, Elbert Hanks and Boyd White, and Eddie Aten. Within this audiobook, the listener will meet a 19-year-old Texas Ranger figuratively dying to shoot his gun. He does get to shoot at people, but soon realizes what he thought was a bargain, exacted a steep price. Another tale is of an old-school cowman who shut down illicit traffic in stolen livestock that had existed for years on the Llano Estacado. He was tough, salty, and had no quarter for cow thieves, or sympathy for any mealy-mouthed politicians. He cleaned house, maybe not too nicely, but he was unarguably successful. Then there is the tale of an accomplished and unbeaten fugitive, well known and identified for murder of a Texas peace officer. But the Texas Rangers couldn't find him. County sheriffs wouldn't hold him. Slipping away from bounty hunters, he hit Owlhoot Trail. This audiobook is published by University of North Texas Press. 1. Language: English.

Mercer Island, Washington is a bedroom community of Seattle, plopped in the middle of Lake Washington and connected to the Big City by what used to be the world's longest floating bridge. In the mid-1960s Mercer Island was known for fancy waterfront homes, an excellent school system, inept sports teams, and teenagers with too much time on their hands and too much money in their pants. For the high school Class of '65, a lot of that time was spent at the Samoa Drive In, the Island's premier teen hangout, and a lot of that money was spent on the Samoa's Cheese Deluxe, one of the world's best burgers. Cheese Deluxe: A Memoir recalls that time and those people, and their mostly true, often comic, occasionally romantic, sometimes automotive adventures in the last blush of being kids on the verge of adulthood. Among the burgered are Stackhouse, whose single erotic fantasy involves a broken down Dodge, a lonely mountain road, and a bag full of burgers; Frank, the auto shop savant whose only real crime is that the police hate him; Curtis, who has devoted his life to smoking, drinking, driving, and being deeply disappointing to his parents; Clifford, who joins the International Jewish Conspiracy primarily for the cuisine; Janelle, the dream girl of many, who learns something about herself from a dying rabbit; and Tucker, a shy young sax player who, on September 5, 1964, integrates Mercer Island High School all by himself, without any help from lawyers, cops, Federal Marshals, the National Guard, or Nicholas Katzenbach. 1.
