From Amanda Knox to Michael Jackson, George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and  Kyle Rittenhouse, this book tracks the major cases of our day and scrutinizes the role that media, and social media, play in our justice system. It closely looks at research about how we form opinions including the science of confirmation bias. Starting with the experience of Anne Bremner as lawyer to Amanda Knox and the Susan Cox Powell family, it moves on to research on false memory and coerced confessions from her brother, Doug Bremner, a world leader in research on memory and posttraumatic stress disorder.

Why couldn’t prosecutors convict O.J. Simpson despite all of the evidence seemingly proving he killed his wife Nicole? Could a jury remain unbiased in the face of overwhelming public pressure in the trial of Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin for the murder of George Floyd? Why was Kyle Rittenhouse exonerated after shooting three people (killing two) with an assault rifle at a violent rally despite widespread media reports seemingly proving his guilt, and national calls for his conviction?

Justice in the Age of Judgement is an unparalleled and unflinching look at the captivating cases tried on Twitter and TV, where the burden of proof and fundamental legal tenet of “innocent until proven guilty” is under assault from the court of public opinion.

"Insight and inside—the Bremners bring all of those attributes and more in this brilliant book that will have you pausing between chapters as you re-think some of the cases that have deļ¬ned our culture and fed our true crime obsessions.”
—GREGG OLSEN, #1New York Times bestselling author of 'If You Tell'.
