Juris Secundum - At the conclusion of the legal drama PERRY
MASON/CBS/1957-66, the camera showed a few of the books in the
library of attorney Perry Mason (Raymond Burr). The books shown
were the Corpus Juris Secundum, Volume 82, 97, 98.
Perry Mason (Raymond Burr), the famous defense
attorney, operated his office out of Suite 904 in the
Brent Building in Los Angeles. His secretary is Della Street.
Paul Drake is his chief investigator.
Through the life of the series Perry Mason never lost a single court battle, except
for one case during the 1963 season. But wait!
At first, it appeared that Mason's rival,
District Attorney Burger (William Talman), who fought valiantly
against the odds for so long had finally won a case
against Mason. Headlines on a seven star edition of the Los
Angeles Chronicle read "Burger Defeats Mason."
Unfortunately for Burger, it was discovered he
won the case on a technicality. Perry's client was covering up
for someone else and allowed herself to be found guilty. Perry
discovered the true villain anyway and got the stubborn victim
out of jail.
