legal eagle puts (cowboy) boot into oil giants

John Bookman is a tenured professor of constitutional law at the University of Texas School of Law. He is not your average professor – his hair is shoulder-length, he wears cowboy boots, rides a Harley and is an expert in martial arts.

As a sideline he is a star on television political talk shows. He gets hundreds of letters from desperate Americans seeking his help, and he takes on the odd lost cause. This one is the poisoning of a small Texas town due to oil fracking.

Giminez has created a likeable, wise-cracking action hero with a high IQ and through him exposes the double standards imposed on US society by avaricious industries and compliant and complacent legislators.
