2008, Judicial Administration, Legislative History editor

Justice Scalia in the Federal Courts of Appeals
By: Joesph L. Gerken

This work from Hein is the first work that studies the influence of Justice Antonin Scalia’s criticism of legislative histories in more than 250 court decisions. Gerken paints the picture of Justice Scalia’s influence on the judicial system with his approach to statutory interpretation. This book is interesting, in that it provides a unique insight into how judges think – what is the reasoning that goes into their decisions?
