Ninth Circuit Cowboy:
Program and Film

Terry Sanders’ film “9TH CIRCUIT COWBOY” celebrates the life of US Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Harry Pregerson. Watch the trailer here.

A judge for over 50 years, when he died, still on the bench at 94,
it was said: “In the field of law and public interest there are stars –
there are superstars – and then, there’s HARRY PREGERSON.”


Join us for a special presentation by two-time Academy Award winning filmmaker Terry Sanders, in conversation with Judge Harry Pregerson’s children, CDCA Judge Dean Pregerson and Katie Rodan.  They will discuss Judge Pregerson’s judicial philosophy, and his roles as a mentor, an ethical leader on and off the bench, and as a father.  Sanders will address the process of capturing all of that in his outstanding new documentary “9TH CIRCUIT COWBOY, The Long Good Fight of Harry Pregerson.”

You will have a week, from March 6th to March 14th, to watch the film from the comfort of your home with the password protected link we will send to you. Mr. Sanders will make himself available for a time after the discussion part of the program to answer your questions about the film.
