See the making of this documentary on the Chattanooga Times Free Press website.

In 1964, Teamster President Jimmy Hoffa was convicted of jury tampering in a federal court in Chattanooga. Forty years later, this trial, which severely tested the limits of American justice, remains an important topic of historic interest. Featuring interviews with numerous trial participants and observers, the 2008 documentary "Balancing the Scales: The Chattanooga Trial of U.S. v. James R. Hoffa" explores the difficulties of finding justice in a high profile, high stakes "trial of the century."

The Chattanooga Chapter of the Federal Bar Association commissioned the film to show at the 2008 Judicial Conference of the 6th Circuit, held in Chattanooga in May.
