David Hackett Souter : traditional Republican on the Rehnquist court by Tinsley E Yarbrough( Book )

14 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 868 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When the first President Bush chose David Hackett Souter for the Supreme Court in 1990, the slender New Englander with the shy demeanor and ambiguous past was quickly dubbed a "stealth candidate". Since his appointment, Souter has embraced a flexible, evolving, and highly pragmatic judicial style that embraces a high regard for precedent--even liberal decisions of the Warren and Burger Courts with which he may have personally disagreed. Ultimately, Yarbrough contends, Souter has become the principal Rehnquist Court opponent of the originalist, text bound jurisprudence that many of the more conservative Justices profess to champion. Sifting through Souter's opinions, papers of the Justice's contemporaries and other relevant records and interviews, esteemed Supreme Court biographer Tinsley Yarbrough here gives us the real David Souter, crafting a fascinating account of one of the heretofore most elusive Justices in the history of the Court

Harry A. Blackmun : the outsider justice by Tinsley E Yarbrough( Book )

17 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 596 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When appointed to the Supreme Court in 1970 by President Nixon, Harry A. Blackmun was seen as a quiet, safe choice to complement the increasingly conservative Court of his boyhood friend, Warren Burger. No one anticipated his seminal opinion championing abortion rights in Roe v. Wade, the most controversial ruling of his generation, which became the battle cry of both supporters and critics of judicial power and made Blackmun a liberal icon. Harry A. Blackmun: The Outsider Justice is Tinsley E. Yarbrough's penetrating account of one of the most outspoken and complicated figures on the Supreme
Mr. Justice Black and his critics by Tinsley E Yarbrough( Book )

7 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and held by 552 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many jurists give lip service to the idea that judicial interpretation of constitutional provisions should be based on the intent of the framers. Few, if any, have been as faithful to that conception as Hugo Black, a U.S. Senator from Alabama. Once on the court, he played a leading role in establishing freedom of speech and other guarantees the interpretation he (and others) believed were warranted by the language and intent of the framers. Late in his career, however, Black's commitment to literalism and intent led him to assume apparently conservative positions in civil liberties cases. The author analyzes Black's judicial and constitutional philosophy, as well as his approach to specific cases, through the eyes of Black's critics and through an assessment of scholarly opinion of his jurisprudence. -- from book jacket
The Burger court : justices, rulings, and legacy by Tinsley E Yarbrough( Book )

5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 531 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Depending on your viewpoint, the Burger Court, 1969-1986, either turned the clock back on the enlightened progressive legal reforms of the Warren Court or put an end to the out-of-control leftist judicial activism of the 1960s. The reality, that readers of this book will learn, was more complicated.; This handbook is an accessible combination of introductory, in-depth, analytical, and reference material that should be useful for the preparation of term papers and debates and for ready reference and more involved research. Further reading and bibliographic sections direct users to primary sources, court documents, and additional research and analysis
