Carl F. Cranor
Toxic Torts: Science, Law and the Possibility of Justice
Cambridge University Press, 2006
KF1299.H39C732006

This book describes the problematic relationship between science and law with respect to proving the harmful effects of toxic chemicals. Cranor discusses
how recent U.S. Supreme Court cases have made it more difficult for victims who are exposed to toxic chemicals to receive adequate compensation. He also points out that if courts review scientific evidence erroneously because of these decisions it could increase legal fees, enhance scrutiny by the courts, and cause attorneys to be more selective of clients in the screening process. The author stipulates that making it more difficult for victims to access the courts could result in companies failing to test their products and increase the likelihood of selling harmful items to consumers.


John V. Orth
How Many Judges Does it Take to Make a Supreme Court?: and other Essays on Law and the Constitution
University Press of Kansas, 2006
KF5130.O78 2006

How Many Judges Does it Take to Make a Supreme Court? includes essays designed to provide the law student with knowledge of legal history and common law beyond what is covered in the law school curriculum. John Orth concentrates heavily on how common law has evolved by learning from the past as well as its relationship with the making of statutory law. He casts doubt on the claim that individual liberties are grounded in common law and he discusses the correlation between the accuracy of court reporting and the power of judges in decision making. Finally, the author talks about the reasons appellate courts always consist of an odd number of judges.
