GOP3 joins the Supreme Court debate
I am going to post on the Wisconsin Judicial Campaign Integrity Committee later today and comment on this column in the Journal Sentinel but I commend Daniel Suhr's analysis of a series of decision by Justice Louis Butler as an example of the kind of debate that we can have about judicial philosophy. (Full disclosure: Daniel is one of my research assistants although I was unaware that he was doing this until I saw the post this morning and he and I are working on an unrelated project.)I haven't looked closely enough at his work to say to what extent I agree with it, but he has tried to identify some aspects of judicial method that he supports and then analyze a judge's work in light of those criteria.
