Decision : how the Supreme Court decides cases by Bernard Schwartz( Book )

12 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 1,451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Decision provides a unique behind-the-scenes look at the Supreme Court and how its Justices decide cases. Distinguished author Bernard Schwartz, uses confidential conference notes, draft opinions, memoranda, letters, and interviews to tell what really goes on behind the red velour curtain. Cases and anecdotes, woven into deft discussions of the Justices and how they function, provide unmatched insights into our high tribunal. We read of the conferences where the Justices cast their votes, the decisions as to who will write opinions (one of the most critical choices made by the Chief Justice), the often extensive give and take of the draft opinion, and the intense lobbying between Justices that influence vote changes (it was Chief Justice Earl Warren's pressure on Justice Reed in Brown that made the final vote unanimous). Schwartz focuses on the Warren, Burger, and Rehnquist Courts, providing not just vivid portraits of the Chief Justices themselves, but also profiles of many Associate Justices in action - including Felix Frankfurter, Byron R. White, Sandra Day O'Connor, William J. Brennan, Thurgood Marshall, and John Paul Stevens. And Schwartz includes an eye-opening discussion of the expanding role of the Justices' clerks, revealing that they are no longer merely a "staff of assistants." Instead, they have evolved into a sort of "Junior Supreme Court," which performs a major part of the judicial role - including the writing of opinions - delegated by the Constitution to the Justices themselves

The Warren Court : a retrospective by Bernard Schwartz( Book )

13 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 810 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A judge-made revolution? The very term seems an oxymoron, yet this is exactly what the Supreme Court under Chief Justice Earl Warren achieved. In Bernard Schwartz's latest work, based on a conference at the University of Tulsa College of Law, we get the first retrospective on the Warren Court - a detailed analysis of the Court's accomplishments, including original pieces by well-known judges, professors, lawyers, popular writers such as Anthony Lewis, David Halberstam, David J. Garrow, and a rare personal remembrance by Justice William J. Brennan, Jr. The Warren Court: A Retrospective begins with an examination of the Court's decisions in a variety of different fields, such as equal protection, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, and criminal law. The work continues with The Justices, an intimate look at the principal protagonists in the Court's operation. Then, in A Broader Perspective, the book looks at the Court from an historical perspective, demonstrating its impact on the legal profession and jurisprudence, its international impact, and its legacy

"Looking back at my work with the [special unnamed] subcommittee [of the House of Representatives] from the relatively calm perspective of a year's hindsight, it seems clear that what most of the Congressmen wanted was a 'safe' counsel--one whom they could control and who could be relied on not to conduct that most feared of all species on Capitol Hill, the 'runaway' investigation"--page [3]

"Warren E. Burger served as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court from 1969 to 1987, an often tumultuous period in which the Court wrestled with several compelling constitutional issues." "An impressive collection of writings by legal scholars and practitioners, including many by people who worked directly or indirectly with the Court itself. The Burger Court: Counter-Revolution or Confirmation? is the first truly systematic review of the Court's activity during Warren Burger's tenure. Such distinguished contributors as Derrick Bell, Robert Drinan, Anthony Lewis, and Mark Tushnet review individual cases and jurisprudential trends in order to render comprehensive judgments of the Court's accomplishments and shortcomings."--Jacket
