“Where were the accountants and attorneys?” asked Judge Stanley Sporkin, famously, during litigation in the wake of the savings and loan scandals of the late 1980s. The question exemplified his career-long pursuit of fairness, accountability, and justice, whether as the pathbreaking head of the Enforcement Division of the SEC (where his efforts led to enactment of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act); as General Counsel of the CIA during the Reagan administration; and on the District Court bench for nearly fifteen years (“There is only one mold for a judge, and that is someone who does justice.”). Judge Sporkin’s newly-posted oral history  recounts his extraordinary years of public service, and is summarized here by D.C. attorney Alexander E. Bennett, who interviewed Sporkin for the oral history.
