It starts innocently enough in the town square of Possum, Virginia. But
it becomes a spectacular national scandal: Can a federal judge outlaw
Christmas? Thomas Hammond and his wife play Joseph and Mary in the
annual live nativity in their hometown. But a federal judge rules the
display unconstitutional. Thomas refuses to abide by the court order—and
ends up in jail. From the courtrooms of Virginia to the talk shows of
New York City, the battle escalates into a national media spectacle.
Caught in the middle is law student Jasmine Woodfaulk, assigned to
represent Thomas as part of her school’s legal aid clinic. Only a
surprising series of events can reconcile a stubborn father, a crusading
law student, and a recalcitrant judge. The Judge Who Stole Christmas is a charming, warm, and thought-provoking Christmas tale that explores in a fresh way the real reason for the season.
