"Scales of Justice is a well-crafted and intelligent play...a consistently entertaining examination of the dangers of censorship in a free society. Moreover, it explores the perils of self-righteousness and blind self-justification -- growing threats that undermine rational discourse on both sides of the political spectrum."
"Scales of Justice [is an] impeccably structured and snappily written new play."
"Kovacsik's script...illustrates the way a seemingly harmless event can trigger a larger effect. Causes and effects escalate out of control, and the ultimate effects on a small group of law students are devastating...Kovacsik has a natural ear for dialogue, and his script gives [the] company an incisive, mature and intelligent text from which to work."
"Scales of Justice, by talented playwright William C. Kovacsik, is well-written and captivating...it's both entertaining and philosophically provocative. [The play] probes how far we're willing to go to gain practical advantage at the risk of personal convictions, and how much damage we're willing to inflict on colleagues to avoid losing."
"With a Law & Order marathon running every holiday weekend, it's easy to think we have as many legal thrillers as we can take. Make room for one more: Scales of Justice by William C. Kovacsik, in its world premiere at the Long Beach Playhouse...it avoids dead bodies and cute detectives but somehow makes dry legal arguments emotionally touching...Kovacsik makes you care passionately about this debate."
"Undoubtedly the best play of the Long Beach Playhouse's 2001 New Works series, Scales of Justice bears this distinction for a reason. In a phrase, it is bold, smart as a whip and inspired... After viewing last year's provocative reading of Scales of Justice, one of four plays chosen by the Playhouse committee out of some 250 new works submitted, I awaited this full production World Premiere with delighted anticipation. I was not disappointed. See this thought-provoking drama if you can."
