The Nine: Inside the Secret World of the Supreme Court

Jeffrey Toobin, CNN legal analyst and staff writer at The New Yorker, will discuss his newest book The Nine: Inside the Secret World of the Supreme Court, a look into the chambers of the U.S. Supreme Court and the nine people who decide the law of the land, at noon on Friday, September 26, 2008, at The City Club of Cleveland. The Forum will be followed by a book signing with the author.


Just in time for the 2008 presidential election—where the future of the Court will be at stake—Toobin reveals an institution at a moment of transition. Based on exclusive interviews with justices themselves, The Nine tells the story of the Court through personalities and gives the full behind-the-scenes story of Bush v. Gore.

Toobin joined CNN from ABC News, where, during his seven-year tenure as a legal analyst, he provided legal analysis on several high profile cases, including the O.J. Simpson civil trial and the Kenneth Starr investigation of the Clinton White House. Toobin received a 2000 Emmy Award for his coverage of the Elian Gonzales custody saga.

Toobin, a staff writer at The New Yorker since 1993, has written articles on such subjects as Attorney General John Ashcroft, the 2001 dispute over Florida's votes for president, the Paula Jones sexual harassment case, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and the trial of Timothy McVeigh.


Previously, Toobin served as an assistant U.S. attorney in Brooklyn and as an associate counsel in the Office of Independent Counsel Lawrence E. Walsh. He has written several books including A Vast Conspiracy: The Real Story of the Sex Scandal that Nearly Brought Down a President; The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson; and Too Close to Call: The 36-Day Battle to Decide the 2000 Election.
