Looking at the legal system

The Federal Bar Association (FBA) Book Club recently hosted a discussion on “The Eyes of Willie McGee” by Alex Heard at the Theodore Levin U.S. Courthouse in Detroit. Andrew Doctoroff (far right) of Honigman, Miller, Schwartz, & Cohn LLP was among those discussing the book. “It’s about an African American man who was convicted of rape in 1945, repeatedly retried and repeatedly sentenced to death and it looks at the legal, factual, social, political, and other factors that contributed to his incarceration, sentencing, and, ultimately, execution,” Doctoroff detailed. “It provides a way of looking at our legal system through the prism of everything that impacts and influences that system.”
