Do You Solemnly Swear...?
Is there a national surge when it comes to lying on the stand?  Scandal after scandal in the past decade, we've seen headlines about many high-profile cases that have struck a damaging blow to our judicial system.  Why do people lie under oath?  On today’s program, we'll talk with about the consequences surrounding the "perjury epidemic" that's "undercutting the very foundation of our courts: relying on witnesses to tell the truth." 
Originally aired on May 31, 2011

Scheduled Guests:
James B. Stewart - author, "Tangled Webs - How False Statements are Undermining America: From Martha Stewart to Bernie Madoff"
Linda Malone - Marshall-Wythe Foundation Professor of Law at the College of William & Mary, specializing in Constitutional Law
