Featured Resource List

E. Thomas Sullivan, Richard S. Frase. Proportionality principles in American law : controlling excessive government actions. Oxford University Press, 2009.

K247.S85 2009

 

This book seeks to advance a general theory of what permits courts to invalidate intrusive measures. The authors argue that standards of review should be more clearly and precisely defined, and that in most circumstances every intrusive government measure which limits or threatens individual rights should undergo some degree of proportionality review. This book examines the origins and contemporary uses of proportionality principles in public law, civil liberties, and the criminal justice system, emphasizing the utility of proportionality principles to guide judicial review of excessive government measures.

 

Rebecca C. Harris. Black robes, white coats : the puzzle of judicial policymaking and scientific evidence. Rutgers University Press, c2008.

KF8961.H37 2008

 

This book combines political analysis, scientific reasoning, and an in-depth study of specific state supreme court cases to create an interdisciplinary examination of the tradition of “gatekeeping,” the practice of deciding the admissibility of novel scientific evidence. The author systematically examines judicial policymaking in three areas —forensic DNA, polygraphs, and psychological syndrome evidence—to answer the question: Why is scientific evidence treated differently among various jurisdictions? These decisions have important implications for evaluating our judicial system and its ability to accurately develop scientific policy.
