A recent documentary about the history and importance of the federal courts in Indiana has been nominated for two Emmy Awards by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.

As stated in an article appearing in the May 8, 2018 online version of the Indiana Lawyer: 

“The film, “And Justice for All: Indiana’s Federal Courts,” has been nominated in the documentary-historical category and in the musical composition/arrangement category. Winners will be announced at the 49th Annual Emmy Awards ceremony June 23, 2018.

In addition to providing an overview of the history of Indiana’s federal courts, the film portrays the events surrounding three cases of historical significance that drew national attention. Documentarians, Indiana historians and members of the local federal bar reenacted the courtroom dramas in Ex parte Milligan, a Civil War-era case; United States v. Ryan, et al., a case of domestic terrorism; and United States v. Board of School Commissioners of the City of Indianapolis, a desegregation case.

The film is available via YouTube and can be viewed here.
