This proposal aims to evaluate if there were any changes in the perceptions of the justice system and its legitimacy having as an indicator the operation Lava Jato. Due to a complex dynamic in the elites' plan, Lava Jato passed from a successful operation to a suspicious one. This proposal will test the hypothesis about the reception of this new frame in the public servants' perceptions about the justice system in the city of São Paulo. It also intends to identify in the justice system operators' close to Lava Jato wrote production convergences with authoritarian discourses. This proposal will use longitudinal surveys, interviews with the justice system's public servants, and the declarations from the Lava Jato operators about respect and reputation among them, their image, and the role of the justice system to achieve these goals.
