Madison County unreeled

As Evan Schaeffer reported Aug. 12 and Aug. 31, citing an Alton (Ill.) Telegraph account, a team led by documentary filmmaker Wayne Ewing is shooting a film about the intense controversy surrounding the courts of Madison County, Ill. (too many mentions on this site and Overlawyered to list). The filmmakers have a website here, and are making noises about presenting both sides of the story, despite the past involvements of director Ewing with both West Virginia chief justice Warren McGraw and PBS's Bill Moyers, neither of whom are exactly the objects of a fan club among litigation reformers.
