Karen Houppert talked about her book, Chasing Gideon: The Elusive Quest for Poor People’s Justice, in which she explores how the Supreme Court arrived at the decision to allow a defendant the right to free representation and the results of the application of this ruling. In March of 1963, the U.S. Supreme Court unanimously decided in Gideon v.
