Comments by circuit judges at the Center's national workshop for appellate
judges revealed somewhat more concern about the consistency of circuit law
than might have been expected from this pattern of survey responses. Fearing
that aggregate survey responses might be masking a more significant problem in

The federal court judges' approach to deportation cases revealed a similar
tension between policy goals and legal norms. In the struggle over the
enforcement of the Geary Act in 1893, the federal judges in California displayed a
strong sympathy for exclusionists and shared Californians' antipathy toward the
cautious administrative officials.54 Yet as the immediate crisis surrounding the
Geary Act ebbed and the deportation cases became a routine part of the court's

I have had them tell me the most remote kind of contacts which everybody at the
counsel table promptly asked the judge to forget. I have seen judges refuse to
serve even though all counsel said that they regarded the extraneous interest as
too trifling to be concerned about. I have yet to encounter a case in which a judge
concealed that which he should have revealed. There probably are some. But
then, those judges probably do other horrendous things. Professor Winter. But is

revealed that 41 percent of the judges felt that "a serious problem of inadequate
advocacy" existed within their courts. David F. Chappell, chairperson of the ABA
Young Lawyers Division, argues that "a subsequent survey of the same federal
judges ...
