AK Monthly Recap: November 2018

It’s not quite as extreme as in 2012, when my broke ass spent a night in the cheapest hostel in London I co...

Empirical SCOTUS: The strength of precedent is in the justices’ actions, not words

During his Supreme Court confirmation hearing in 2005, Chief Justice John Roberts declared, “Judges have to have the humility to recognize that they operate within a system of precedent shaped by other judges equally striving to live up to the judicial oath, and judges have to have modesty to be open in the decisional process to the considered views of their colleagues on the bench.” Although precedent is a strong principle in the justices’ decision calculi, it does not bind the Supreme Court in...
