Forgotten TV: JUDD FOR THE DEFENSE
This was a show about a defense attorney that was on from 1967-69 and put together by Paul Monash.
Judd was a Houston attorney who traveled across the country defending liberal causes such as the attempt to jail draft evaders. Carl Betz, coming off his Milquetoast role on THE DONNA REED SHOW, was fierce and sympathetic. The times were right, we loved this show. Probably would seem overly dramatic and hyperbolic today.The show channeled the careers of Percy Foreman and F. Lee Bailey and Foreman actually threatened a suit.
