Barbara A. Radnofsky

Author of A Citizen's Guide to Impeachment

Friday, October 13th at 7pm

Impeachment is based upon "those offences which proceed from the misconduct of public men, or, in other words, from the abuse or violation of some public trust ... as they relate chiefly to injuries done immediately to the society itself." --Alexander Hamilton

A non-partisan guide to a precise understanding of the rules and history of impeachment ...
Spotlighting in particular the precise rules of impeachment--including an explanation of the crucial grounds for impeachment, the famous "high crimes and misdemeanors"--the book also details its origins in British law, the rules as set out by the founding fathers in the Constitution, and their application throughout the history of our democracy.

That history includes a detailed chronolgy of the nineteen instances of impeachment that have taken place--of judges, legislators, and presidents--throughout American history, starting with the very first impeachment trial of an America politician: that of a federal judge who seemed to have developed dementia.

All of which makes A Citizen's Guide to Impeachment a fascinating read about a unique aspect of our democracy, as well as a useful, one-of-a-kind guide for citizens in a participatory government.

Barbara Ann Radnofsky is a magna cum laude graduate of the University of Houston, where she enrolled at age sixteen, and the University of Texas School of Law. 

Practicing on both sides of the litigation docket and as a mediator and arbitrator,  she has been listed since 1993 in Best Lawyers in America in multiple categories. 

In 2006, after 27 years of law practice, Barbara Ann left Vinson and Elkins as Head of the Alternate Dispute Resolution Section to become the first woman Texas Democratic U.S. Senate nominee and later the first woman Texas Democratic Attorney General nominee.
