Stare indecisis : the alteration of precedent on the Supreme Court, 1946-1992 by Saul Brenner( Book )

16 editions published between 1995 and 2006 in English and held by 468 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
Strategy on the United States Supreme Court by Saul Brenner( Book )

9 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To what extent do the justices on the Supreme Court behave strategically? In Strategy on the United States Supreme Court, Saul Brenner and Joseph M. Whitmeyer investigate the answers to this question and reveal that justices are substantially less strategic than many Supreme Court scholars believe. By examining the research to date on each of the justice's important activities, Brenner and Whitmeyer's work shows that the justices often do not cast their certiorari votes in accord with the outcome-prediction strategy, that the other members of the conference coalition bargain successfully with the majority opinion writer in less than 6 percent of the situations, and that most of the fluidity in voting on the Court is nonstrategic. This work is essential to understanding how strategic behavior - or its absence - influences the decisions of the Supreme Court and, as a result, American politics and society

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
