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
some circuits, we looked more closely at the results from individual courts. No
judge reported the lack of clear precedent to be a grave problem. Only five
judges (from four ...

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
business, Chinese ...

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
it not ...

In passing on legislation a hasty or ill-informed decision by the Senate can be
rejected by the House, vetoed by the President, invalidated by the courts or
repealed by the Congress; but an error in confirming a Federal judge is final and
... and perhaps some summary dispositions from the bench, but there was no
practicable manner of analyzing or even locating such orders, and there is no
reason to believe that the pattern revealed by these cases would differ from that

The Devitt Committee based its conclusion as to the existence of a serious
problem largely on a survey of federal district judges conducted in 1977 by the
Federal Judicial Center, a research arm of the Judicial Conference. That survey
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 ...

Congress made its concern evident to the judiciary that there be in place a formal
and credible supplement to the impeachment process for resolving complaints of
misconduct or disability brought against federal judges, while the judiciary
revealed to Congress its concern that any such system not prove to be a cure
worse than the disease. In 1986, Senate Majority Leader Robert Dole, in the
wake of the Claiborne impeachment and removal proceedings, proposed the
statutory ...

Although Jefferson was, as revealed in Professor Haynes' book "Selection and
Tenure of Judges," once committed to judicial independence, he later changed
his mind. His early position was encapsulated in his own words in this way: "The
judges . . . should they hold estates for life in their offices, or, in other words, their
commissions should be during good behavior." After engaging in battle with the
Federalist judiciary led by John Marshall, however, Jefferson came to the view, ...
