AMF on Interim Legal System

Black-robed Federal and state judges, the few who were left, were fleeing from the Pacific Northwest like rats leaving a sinking ship, and they were being replaced on their benches by locally elected members of the community who sat on the bench dressed like everyone else and who knew little of law, but much of justice. In some cases the new judges had nothing in front of them but the Bible and/or a copy of the old United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights, Founding Father’s version, yet they managed just fine and to the satisfaction of the communities they served.

--“A Mighty Fortress” pg 318
