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

17 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 786 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 )

11 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 750 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

18 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and held by 578 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book, authored by two leading scholars of the Supreme Court and its policy making, systematically presents and validates the use of the attitudinal model to explain and predict Supreme Court decision making. In the process, it critiques the two major alternative approaches to Supreme Court decision making: the legal and rational choice models."--Jacket
Stare indecisis : the alteration of precedent on the Supreme Court, 1946-1992 by Saul Brenner( Book )

17 editions published between 1995 and 2006 in English and held by 495 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 US Supreme Court justices have chosen to alter precedent. This book attempts to fill this gap by analyzing those decisions of the Vinson, Warren, and Burgers courts, as well as the first six terms of the Rehnquist Court - a span of 47 years (1946-1992) - which 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 instituional stare decisis. By using the attitudinal model of Supreme Court decision making, the authors find that it is the individual justices' ideologies which explain their voting behavior

Stare indecisis : las alteraciones del precedente en la Corte Suprema de Estados Unidos, 1946-1992 by Saul Brenner( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in Spanish and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aunque el concepto de precedente es básico para que opere el sistema jurídico, todavía no se han realizado estudios empíricos comprehensivos acerca de por qué los jueces de la Corte Suprema de los Estados Unidos eligen alterar un precedente. Este libro intenta llenar aquel vacío analizando las decisiones que alteraron formalmente precedentes en las Cortes de Vinson, Warren y Burger, así como en los seis primeros ejercicios de la Corte de Rehnquist -un período de cuarenta y seis años (1946-1992)-. Los autores resumen estudios previos sobre el precedente y la Corte, evalúan la votación en asamblea de los jueces y compilan una lista de casos que rechazan precedentes y de los casos rechazados. Adicionalmente, trazan una distinción entre stare decisis personal e institucional. Utilizando el modelo actitudinal de toma de decisiones de la Corte Suprema, que normalmente es visto como antitético al modelo jurídico de votación, los autores descubren que son las ideologías individuales de los jueces las que explican su comportamiento al votar
