Christopher L. Eisgruber

The Next Justice: Repairing the Supreme Court Appointments ProcessPrinceton University Press, 2007.

KF8742.E357 2007

 

In The Next Justice, Christopher Eisgruber describes a new and better manner of deliberating about who should serve on the Court—by putting the burden on nominees to show that their judicial philosophies and politics are acceptable to senators and citizens alike. And he makes a new case for the virtue of judicial moderates.

 

Today's appointments process reveals little about what kind of judge a nominee might make. Eisgruber’s solution is to investigate how nominees would answer a basic question about the Court's role: When and why is it beneficial for judges to trump the decisions of elected officials? The author believes that pursuing this question would reveal far more about nominees than do other tactics, such as investigating their views of specific precedents or the framers' intentions.
