Overview

The Choices Justices Make argues convincingly that Supreme Court justices are policy-makers who strategically select courses of action by weighing not only their own preferences but also the actions they expect from their colleagues on the Court, Congress, and the president.

Enriched with unique data, stories, and internal documents culled from four justices' private papers, this book makes a strong case for the factors that hold sway on justices as they decide which cases to accept, how to vote in conference, and how to word their written opinions.
