God Bless Richard Posner

By August 7, 2003law

“An appeal should not resemble a congressional hearing” writes Judge Posner [link to story via Howard Bashman]

It’s refreshing to hear a prominent legal figure admonish that the judiciary should not be swayed by politics. It would seem so obvious as not to need to be stated. Sadly, that’s not the case.

These days it seems like the resolution of every dispute winds up becoming a political free for all.


P.S. If you appreciate my observations, you might want to join my inner circle.

    I am doing a project on Mr. Posner, and would appreciate a summation of his influences on the legal system, as well as his basic principles and beliefs

    Anything would be helpful…
