Trivia Jackie DiNorscio picked Vin Diesel to play him. Much to Diesel's surprise, DiNorscio wanted Diesel cast after watching The Fast and the Furious (2001). See more »
Goofs The Latin motto on the judge's desk "FIAT JUSTICA ET RUAT CAELUM" is wrong. It should be "FIAT JUSTITIA RUAT CAELUM". "JUSTITIA" is spelled wrongly and the "ET" makes nonsense of the motto: "Let Justice Be Done [and] the Sky May Fall" See more »
