A Talk with Judge Michael A. Ponsor

A Talk with Judge Michael A. Ponsor


On Monday, September 18, 2017, The Honorable Michael A. Ponsor, a senior judge on the U.S. District Court of Massachusetts and New York Times Best-Selling Author addressed a large and highly receptive audience by reading excerpts from his new book, “The One-Eyed Judge.”  The book follows U.S. District Judge David Norcross, who must preside over the case of a respected professor with seemingly airtight evidence against him in a child pornography case, all the while undergoing personal crises of his own. The One-Eyed Judge draws on Ponsor’s 30 years as a U.S. district judge, offering readers an insider’s view of one of the most harrowing kinds of cases faced by the courts. It has been described as fast-paced, thrilling, and thought-provoking legal fiction.
