Curtis Wilkie | Clinton School Presents

Interview with Curtis Wilkie for NPR affiliate KUAR on Clinton School Presents, a weekly dialogue of distinguished guests that visit the Clinton School of Public Service in Little Rock, Arkansas. Nikolai DiPippa, Clinton School Director of Public Programs, sat down with Curtis Wilkie to discuss his book, "The Fall of the House of Zeus: The Rise and Ruin of America’s Most Powerful Trial Lawyer," which traces the rise and fall of billionaire lawyer Dickie Scruggs, documenting how he made his fortune through class-action lawsuits directed at the tobacco and asbestos industries before his conviction in 2008 for conspiring to bribe a Mississippi state judge.
