2001 (32:28 mins) Island Topics #31 JUSTICE & LAW
The show begins: "The citizens of this new nation abide by a modern democratic legal system which was set up when independence was proclaimed in 1979; a system which very closely mirrors the American legal system.It is no surprise that this newer system is, for many Micronesians, mysterious and confusing. Today we will take a look at our modern judicial system and try and understand how it works, in this episode of "I'll See You in Court". This thirty-minute drama, a courtroom spoof based on "Court TV" shows, lets the audience into the inner workings of the court system. The two episodes dramatize a civil case and a criminal case. The bumbling Ronnie John and his brother battle out their cases in both of these episodes of "I'll See you in Court".
