Early in his judicial career, U.S. District Judge Warren K. Urbom was assigned a yearlong string of criminal trials arising from a seventy-one-day armed standoff between the American Indian Movement and federal law enforcement at Wounded Knee, South Dakota.
In his new book, Called to Justice, Urbom provides the first behind-the scenes look at what quickly became one of the most significant series of federal trials of the twentieth century. But that was only one monumental case Urbom presided over during his years on the bench.
Called to Justice offers a rare inside view of what it means to be a federal judge. William Webster, former director of the FBI and CIA, and now chairman of the Homeland Security Advisory Council, said that this book “…will strengthen your confidence in our judicial system.”
Tonight in Lincoln, Judge Urbom will be signing copies of Called to Justice at the Grand Manse from 5:30-7:00 p.m. Books will be available for purchase on site by Indigo Bridge Books.
