What are our legal rights to a civil death?
A lawyer in many high profile cases, John Jay Hooker has brought his training and personal charisma to bear on important social issues.
"It is the ultimate civil right," John Jay said, "to be able to die with dignity, while you still have some choice in the matter."
As a legal mind, he is responsible for bringing to pass the famous Baker vs. Carr case that resulted in the law of the land known as “one man, one vote.”
Running for governor of Tennessee at the height of the civil rights movement, he encountered opposition to his fight for civil rights that has made him a living legend.
