William M. Richman & William L. Reynolds. Injustice on appeal : the United States Courts of Appeals in crisis. Oxford University Press, 2013.

KF8750.R53 2013

 

In Injustice on Appeal: The United States Courts of Appeals in Crisis, the authors chronicle the transformation of the United States Circuit Courts; consider the merits and dangers of continued truncating procedures; catalogue and respond to the array of arguments against increasing the size of the judiciary; and consider several ways of reorganizing the circuit courts so that they can dispense traditional high quality appellate justice even as their caseloads and the number of appellate judgeships increase. The work serves as an analytical capstone to the authors' thirty years of research on the issue and will constitute a powerful piece of advocacy for a more responsible and egalitarian approach to caseload glut facing the circuit courts.
