The eighth edition of Judicial Process in America gives a thorough overview of the American judiciary at every level, paying particular attention to the link between the courts, public policy, and the political environment. In addition to comprehensive updates on such topics as the role of the courts in the war on terror, affirmative action, and business regulation, notable additions to this eighth edition include discussion of: the probable impact that President Obama will have on the composition of the federal judiciary and on subsequent judicial "output; the highly conservative impact that former President Bush had on the federal judiciary; Justice Sonia Sotomayor's appointment, as well as Chief Justice John Roberts's leadership on the Supreme Court; the role the courts are playing in the policy realm of same-gender marriages and discrimination based on sexual orientation; and more comparative references and examples throughout the book. Adopters and students alike will also appreciate the new Web sites that the authors added to the end-of-chapter suggested resources, as well as the unique annotated U.S. Constitution found in the appendix. This extensive revision of a classic text brings new life to a standard-bearer for judicial process classes. - Publisher

Politics and judgment in federal district courts by C. K Rowland( Book )

6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Are appointment politics and court decisions linked? Do presidents use judicial appointments to shape their policy agendas? C. K. Rowland and Robert A. Carp provide definitive answers to these questions and, in the process, offer a new paradigm for the study of judicial fact finding. Working from interviews and more than 45,000 court rulings from 1933 to 1988 - the largest and most current database available - Rowland and Carp document the undeniable link between politics and jurisprudence in the federal lower courts. Rejecting the reductionist attitudinal (or behavioral) model of judicial fact finding for a new one based on social cognition, they argue that trial judges' decisions are not mechanically motivated by the policies and ideologies of the judge or the judge's appointing president
