David Hackett Souter : traditional Republican on the Rehnquist court by Tinsley E Yarbrough ( Book )
9 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,752 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'. Determined to avoid a repeat of the firestorm surrounding President Reagan's nomination of the controversial Robert Bork, Bush opted for Souter, who had, remarkably, produced only one law review article in his legal career. Souter, an obscure but well-respected New Hampshire conservative, seemed unlikely to arouse the kind of passionate opposition that defined the Bork confirmation process. And, indeed, Souter was accepted onto the Court with little fuss. Today, fifteen years into his tenure, Souter remains as enigmatic and unpredictable as ever, a mystery even to avid Court watchers. Who is David Hackett Souter and what will be his legacy on the Supreme Court? 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.; Though Souter's record on legal issues was generally conservative before his arrival on the Court, his mixed views caused some concern among both the left and the right during the appointment process. His reclusive lifestyle and frugality added to his mystique, making him even more difficult to peg. His penchant for solitude and his seemingly narrow circle of close friends convinced some that the middle-aged bachelor was out of touch with the sort of 'real world' problems the nation's highest court regularly confronts. Court watchers soon realized - to their delight or dismay - that President Bush's 'stealth' justice was a traditional New England Republican deeply tied to the party's historic roots in the union and civil rights - in stark contrast to most Reagan-Bush I appointees. On the bench, 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.; Even more significantly, Souter has become a regular and very effective critic of the set of rulings via which his ostensible political brethren - Chief Justice William Rehnquist, Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas - have abandoned precedent to assert their conservative vision. 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
The Burger court justices, rulings, and legacy by Tinsley E Yarbrough ( )
5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,361 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

Harry A. Blackmun : the outsider justice by Tinsley E Yarbrough ( Book )
14 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 1,072 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 )
6 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and held by 558 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
