Storyline

Judge Nash is highly regarded for his position and decisions in the courtroom. He's approached by a special agent from a government task force investigating corrupt judges and lawyers, and asked to participate in a sting operation. Initially it's against some people Nash has no trouble believing are corrupt, but as the scope of the sting widens to include some of his friends, he tries to get out. That's when the agent threatens to reveal information that would embarrass Judge Nash if he doesn't continue. Written by Brian W Martz <B.Martz@Genie.com>

An intricately plotted and genuinely involving story about judicial corruption.
16 July 1999 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

"Broken Trust" explores the murky world of judicial corruption--the temptations for underpaid judges to take drug money to go easy on criminal defendants. It also focuses on the prosecutorial tactics necessary to trap corrupt judges and the ways in which overzealous prosecutors can do terrible damage. The central character, Judge Tim Nash (Tom Selleck) has financial and personal problems of his own when he's reluctantly recruited by the federal strike force to run a sting on one of his fellow judges suspected of taking bribes. But things don't go according to plan and the scheme spins wildly out of control. I thought the story was told with restraint and the moral ambivalence of the world in which it was set was convincingly depicted. There isn't much of a love story in "Broken Trust" and not much violence, but there is a great deal of substance and depth in this film.
