Modern Day Muckraking “In 1979, Goldschmidt, who as mayor had won national renown for the development of the downtown bus mall and the city 's then-revolutionary light rail, was tapped by President Jimmy Carter to be Secretary of Transportation” (Jaquiss).

Perez-Gimenez of United States District Court, presided over a class action filed by inmates in 1979 over prison overcrowding. Just in 2007, a federal district court in Puerto Rico held that the governor of Puerto Rico and island prison officials were in contempt of court for violating an injunction requiring that prisoners be given first 35 square feet, then 50 ft., then 70 square feet of living space per prisoner.
On the day of sentencing, Judge John Caverly returned to court with his findings. The judge sentenced both defendants to life in prison for the murder and another 99 years for the kidnapping.

She looks to get the help from Cogburn because of his history of violence towards criminals and the fact that he is known for getting the job done.
