Description by OLDIES.com:
It is you the people who are The Court of Last Resort! The Court of Last Resort is actually at work today, investigating cases throughout the United States, announces the narrator at the beginning of each episode. Established in the late 1940s, the Court was composed of seven experts in law and criminology (including Perry Mason's creator, Erle Stanley Gardner) who came together with the sole purpose of saving the lives of innocent people who had been convicted of murder.
THE CLARENCE REDDING CASE: The infamous "lipstick murderer" is a fiend who stalks and murders young girls. When a drifter is accused of killing Annie Bingham, Investigator Sam Larsen has just three weeks to find the real killer before Redding is executed.
THE CONRAD MURRAY CASE: Conrad Murray was sentenced to life in prison after murdering a grocery store owner and his wife during a robbery attempt. He's hoping to win a parole, but first he must confront the adult son of the couple he killed.
THE GEORGE ZACCHO CASE: A fortuneteller holds the answers to the murder of a mistreated wife who was allegedly poisoned by her cheating husband. Although convicted of the killing, George Zaccho strongly maintains his innocence.
THE JACOB LOVELESS CASE: Did illiterate hillbilly Jacob Loveless brutally beat teenagers to death along an old country road for a few dollars in change? Four times over 22 years the convicted man applies for parole. Each time his request is rejected - until the Court of Last Resort intervenes.
