Motion for Justice, Brian Vukadinovich’s long-awaited new book, has hit the shelves.
Brian is an advisor, a friend, and a popular member of Courtroom5’s pro se community. Our members know him as an extremely knowledgeable litigator and generous contributor. You’ve hit the jackpot in Courtroom5’s community when Brian Vukadinovich pops in to discuss your case.
He’s also an infrequent blogger at Courtroom5, but he’s too humble to plug his own book here. I’m happy to do it for him.
One could say Brian has been working on this book for a lifetime. His introduction to the justice system came decades ago, when he was arrested as a young man for the crime of standing outside a bank with his mom. His story is an indictment of the entire U.S. justice system — from the beat cop to the Supreme Court — backed up by a fascinating chronicle of his own experiences. I especially enjoyed the detailed descriptions of his courtroom procedures and the thinking that drove his case strategies.
It’s a great read, particularly for pro se litigants and others who still believe justice can be found in the courts. The Chicago Tribune’s review noted that Brian held nothing back. Despite his own success, such beliefs are pure fantasy, according to Brian Vukadinovich:
I am pleased to announce the recent release of my book, Motion For Justice – I Rest My Case. My book chronicles many injustices I had to face in my adult life in dealing with unsavory lawyers and a corrupt judiciary. I spent many years trying to get justice for wrongs that were committed against me by corporations and government agencies regarding my right to work as a teacher and to be free of retaliatory police harassment and brutality. I hope my book raises awareness of the obstacles for people trying to obtain justice in a very unfair court system that overly protects corporations and government agencies in the United States that have violated the rights of the people.
My book also discusses how I won a federal jury trial in March 2016 against my former public school corporation employer in Indiana. I represented myself at a five-day jury trial and beat the corporation and its team of lawyers. The jury determined that the corporation violated my due process rights and awarded me significant damages. My book discusses how the federal judge in the case went out of his way to make it difficult for me to win my case, simply because I was pro se. I hope my book draws attention to the unfairness of the legal profession and judiciary, and that it effects some positive change.
Brian Vukadinovich is serious about justice, and that makes him serious about the courts, the institution in our country primarily responsible for justice. I hope there are people in that institution willing to hear what Brian has to say.
