Mark Lane

Mark Lane (born February 24, 1927) is an American lawyer who has written many books, including Rush to Judgment and A Citizen's Dissent, two major books published in the immediate wake of the John F. Kennedy assassination that questioned the conclusions of the Warren Commission. Another book, Plausible Denial, published in 1991, continued his interest in the JFK assassination. Lane was thought to be a screenwriter for the 1973 action movie, Executive Action, starring Burt Lancaster and Robert Ryan, but in actuality he only worked on the first draft of the screenplay. He collaborated with Donald Freed on it and after seeing subsequent drafts, they complained both privately to the producer and publicly at press conferences, pointing out errors in the work. Lane represented the Peoples Temple, led by Jim Jones, and was one of the few witnesses to survive the tragedy at Jonestown, at which over 900 United States citizens died. In 1959, Mark Lane helped found the Reform Democratic Movement within the New York Democratic Party. In 1960, he was elected to the New York Legislature, where he served for one term with the support of Eleanor Roosevelt and Presidential candidate, John F.
