What would a fascist justice system look like?

As I read this account in the Los Angeles Times, Aug. 15, 2007, How lawyer navigates sea of secrecy in bizarre case, about a lawyer who cannot read the pleadings of the government, who is told that he must write his client's brief in the government's office -- without the benefit of notes or law books, and who cannot keep a copy of his own brief, I imagined a lawyer in Germany in 1937 representing a Jew challenging some provision of the Nuremburg laws.
