Can A Lawyer Ever Do Right?, 17 Cardozo Law Review 1859 (1996)
Jacques Maury and Maurice Garc;on were good people, but not good enp~gh. They resisted the harshness of the racial laws of Vichy France but not as fully as they should have. Falling victim to the proclivity of all lawyers, they became ensnared within the technical trappings of the law. They helped individual clients who suffered under the Vichy laws, but are faulted by Richard Weisberg for failing to challenge those laws at a foundational level. Professor Weisberg described the result as grotesque.
