Sean Farhang. The litigation state : public regulation and private lawsuits in the U.S. Princeton University Press, c2010.

KF8840.F373 2010

 

This book explains that of the 1.65 million lawsuits enforcing federal laws over the past decade, 3 percent were prosecuted by the federal government, while 97 percent were litigated by private parties.  The author shows how government legislation created the nation's reliance upon private litigation, and investigates why Congress would choose to mobilize, through statutory design, private lawsuits to implement federal statutes. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Amy Steigerwalt. Battle over the bench : senators, interest groups, and lower court confirmations. University of Virginia Press, 2010.

KF8776.S74 2010

 

This book discusses how the lower federal courts have increasingly become the final arbiters of the important political and social issues of the day, and as a result, who gets seated on the bench has become a major political issue.  The author offers an analytic framework for understanding when nominations become contested, and shows when and how key actors can influence the fate of nominations and ultimately determine who will become a federal judge.
