Earl R. Larson Professor of Civil Rights and Civil Liberties Law,University of Minnesota Law School.

Equal parts investigative legal history and compelling detective tale, Flagrant Conduct is the still-untold story of Lawrence v. Texas, the landmark Supreme Court. Drawing from dozens of new interviews that yield surprising new evidence, Carpenter reexamines the motives of almost every character involved, from the arresting police officers to the gay-rights attorneys, to the nine Supreme Court justices. This is the first complete history of the case, which expanded the legal rights of millions of gay and lesbian Americans.
