Livonia author Jeffrey Caminsky is among the winners of the short story contest sponsored by the Michigan Bar Journal.
This is the second Michigan Bar Journal competition that Caminsky has won. His story, Crapshoot, was among the winners of the Journal's first competition, in 2007.
The new story, "Crucible of Justice," traces the tragic courtroom aftermath of a night-time firebombing that resulted in the murders of four members of a family. Based on a real case, the story demonstrates the conflicts and tensions that arise when the need to protect the innocent conflicts with the rights due to the accused in a court of law.
The story, along with the other two winners, will be published in the August edition of the Michigan Bar Journal.
