Most widely held works by Harold J Spaeth
Majority rule or minority will : adherence to precedent on the U.S. Supreme Court by Harold J Spaeth( Book )

15 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 747 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book examines the influence of precedent on the behavior of U.S. Supreme Court justices throughout the Court's history. Under the assumption that for precedent to be an influence on the behavior of justices it must lead to a result they would not otherwise have reached, the results show that when justices disagree with the establishment of a precedent, they rarely shift from their previously stated views in subsequent cases. In other words, they are hardly ever influenced by precedent. Nevertheless, the doctrine of stare decisis does exhibit some low-level influence on the justices in the least salient of the Court's decisions. The book examines these findings in light of several leading theories of judicial decision making."--Jacket
The Supreme Court in the American legal system by Jeffrey Allan Segal( Book )

8 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 712 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book examines the American legal system, including a comprehensive treatment of the U.S. Supreme Court. Despite this treatment, the in of the title deserves emphasis, for the authors extensively examine lower courts, providing separate chapters on state courts, the U.S. District Courts, and the U.S. Courts of Appeals. The book analyzes these courts from a legal/extralegal framework, drawing different conclusions about the relative influence of each based on institutional structures and empirical evidence. The book is also tied together through its attention to the relationship between lower courts and the Supreme Court. Additionally, Election 2000 litigation provides a common substantive topic linking many of the chapters. Finally, it provides extended coverage of the legal process, with separate chapters on civil procedure, evidence, and criminal procedure."--Jacket

Stare indecisis : the alteration of precedent on the Supreme Court, 1946-1992 by Saul Brenner( Book )

15 editions published between 1995 and 2006 in English and held by 457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although the concept of precedent is basic to the operation of the legal system, there has not yet been a full-length empirical study of why U.S. Supreme Court justices have chosen to alter precedent. This book attempts to fill this gap by analyzing those decisions of the Vinson, Warren, and Burger Courts, as well as the first six terms of the Rehnquist Court - a span of 47 years (1946-1992) - that formally altered precedent. The authors summarize previous studies of precedent and the Court, assess the conference voting of justices, and compile a list of overruling and overruled cases. Additionally, the authors draw a distinction between personal and institutional stare decisis. By using the attitudinal model of Supreme Court decision making, which is normally seen as antithetical to the legal model of voting, the authors find that it is the individual justices' ideologies which explain their voting behavior
