A real-life legal thriller based on the book by Jonathan Harr, John Travolta stars as a small-time tort lawyer who risks everything in his lawsuit against two of the country’s largest corporations.  Did the companies’ toxic waste cause the deaths of several children in the community?  F&M alumni (hydrogeologists) were involved in the actual case, which presented complex issues of scientific proof and legal causation.

Part of the CLAS Legal Film Series sponsored by CLAS, the John Marshall Pre-Law Honor Society, and the Houses.

This event is open to the public.
