Miles Lord (Roberta Walburn)Roberta Walburn will be at Common Good Books on Tuesday, October 24 at 7:00 p.m. for a reading and signing of her new book, Miles Lord: The Maverick Judge Who Brought Corporate America to Justice.


This is the story of Miles Lord (1919–2016), who rose from humble beginnings on Minnesota’s Iron Range to become one of the most colorful and powerful judges in the country, described as “an unabashed Prairie populist” and “a live-wire slayer of corporate behemoths.” It is a compelling portrait of a remarkable man and his place in Minnesota and U.S. history.


"Miles Lord set a new standard for judicial courage by speaking truth to power and fighting for the rights of the downtrodden. He shook up the system—and we’re all in his debt for that." —Walter Mondale


"Judge Lord’s biography could have no better author than his clerk, Roberta Walburn, who is also a champion of justice and has fought corporate malfeasance her entire career." —Linda Lipsen, chief executive officer, American Association for Justice
