View: 3206Based on a true story, "Truth Be Told" tells of a woman's fight against sexual harassment and discrimination at a top-fifty U.S. law school. Julia Borden is a Norman Rockwell version of today's healthy-minded and successful American woman. A former JAG officer at Guantanamo, she goes to work for a law school where she establishes a program to train students how to provide legal services to military families in need. But one of the university officials wants her for his own purposes, and he won't stop his attentions, even though her husband is a distinguished colleague at the school. Finally the perpetrator goes to far. Julia and her husband, Alex, demand action from the law school. But the good ole boys, in all of their arrogance, instead circle the wagons. Putting the institution at risk, they wind up being sued in federal court. That's where the truth finally comes out about their odious behavior - their incompetence and their deceit - and their attempts to cover it all up. "Truth Be Told" was written by award-winning broadcast journalist Tony Seton.
