Description

Beginning with the Warren Supreme Court, this article "examined how various interest groups used the courts as a new means to achieve political ends. The movement began with civil rights groups in the 1950s. In recent years, other organizations, especially business and consumer groups, have joined the fray, treating judicial elections like any other political election as a means of installing judges sympathetic to a cause. The result has been a political free-for-all over the courts, a development that is eroding the judicial branch's independence and neutrality."
