Why are so many innocent people imprisoned in the United States, and why are so many of those wrongly convicted people unable to overturn their conviction? System Failure explains in 25 chapters how and why that has happened. Author James F. Love has extensive knowledge and keen insights about the inner workings of the legal system gained from his extensive experience as a top jailhouse lawyer involved for almost two decades in criminal and civil litigation. Love's accomplishments include being responsible for the reversal and new trial in four aggravated murder convictions in Ohio. System Failure is a must read for lawyers, law students, paralegals and laypersons concerned with preserving their rights.

James F. Love has studied the law since 1990. Mr. Love was a published columnist for four years with Ohio S.O.R.T.'s magazine, The Challenger. He is a contributing writer for Justice:Denied - the magazine for the wrongly convicted. As a jailhouse lawyer Mr. Love has seven reported decisions from the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit and numerous other lower court reported decisions. He is responsible for the reversal and new trial in four aggravated murder convictions in Ohio since 1995. Mr. Love's personal convictions have been reversed twice. The trial court dismissed the indictment in February 2008. The prosecutor appealed, and in December 2008 the Court of Appeals reinstated the indictment. After the Ohio Supreme Court declined to review the appeals court ruling, Mr. Love filed a writ of habeas corpus in the U.S. District Court in Cincinnati. He is arguing that a third trial is barred by the U.S. Constitution's Double Jeopardy Clause. As of November 2009 the U.S. District Court has not issued its decision.
