Former U.S. District Judge Harry Claiborne ended his colorful life in 2004 by shooting himself in the head at his Las Vegas home.
Claiborne, 86, survived prison and impeachment in life; but health problems, including Alzheimer’s disease, finally defeated him.
Seven years after Claiborne’s death became front-page news in Las Vegas, a California author is seeking to restore the man’s reputation with his new book, “Lies Within Lies: The Betrayal of Nevada Judge Harry Claiborne.” The book, $28.95 in hardcover, is being published by Stephens Press, a Review-Journal sister company.
