Arkansas Week December 20, 2019

This week's edition of Arkansas Week is a special one, if a bit unusual for the Christmas season. It was 50 Christmases ago when a federal judge assigned two Arkansas lawyers an unusual mission, they would inspect and investigate a prison system that suggested scandal on a massive scale. Sure enough, soon enough, it would stagger not only the state but the nation.

Panelists: Philip Kaplan, Attorney; and Jack Holt Jr., Chief Justice (Ret.) AR Supreme Court.
