Sadusky: So, here is your options: Door number one – you go to prison for a very long time. Door number two – we’re going to get back the Declaration of Independence; you help us find it, and… you still go to prison for a very long time. But you’ll feel better inside.
Ben Gates: Is there a door that doesn’t lead to prison?
Sadusky: [laughing] Someone’s got to go to prison, Ben. — National Treasure, 2004
Judges must do all possible to resist the temptation to incarcerate defiant litigants, because incarceration should be the last resort. Judges should enforce their rulings using the least force necessary, not the most force available. And history teaches that for those who conscientiously defy the law — particularly for religious-based reasons — incarceration is often fruitless.
