Judge Taylor never asks Atticus to take the case in the novel. Their discussion is, however, mentioned after the fact in Chapter Nine.
"Before I'm through, I intend to jar the jury a bit--I think we'll have a reasonable chance on appeal, though... I'd hoped to get through life without a case of this kind, but John Taylor pointed at me and said, 'You're it.' "
