Slouching Toward Bethlehem With The Ninth Amendment, William W. Van Alstyne Jan 1981

Slouching Toward Bethlehem With The Ninth Amendment, William W. Van Alstyne

Faculty Publications

This review discusses Charles Black’s work “Decision According to Law”, which examines the tendency and the means used by activist judges to provide fair decisions through the use of more flexible principles of Constitutional law. While Black’s writing style is both informative and powerful, his original thesis regarding the Ninth Amendment acting as Congressional endorsement of the courts’ activist role is uncompelling and poorly supported.

Wilkinson's work is found to maintain a narrow focus on its specific subject of school desegregation and the Supreme Court, but it suffers from over-exaggeration and an abundance of adornment in his writing style. Counting is a provocative piece that asserts the position that the Constitution is still not color-blind, despite what many have proposed, and makes an authoritative argument for such a claim.

Faculty Publications

Our romantic ideals are questioned by critics who view the civil jury as prejudiced and unpredictable; proponents note the sense of fairness and "earthy wisdom" gained by community participation in the legal process. This debate surfaces in the process of accommodation between certain substantive goals of the law and the pre-verdict and post-verdict procedural devices courts have employed to control the jury. In this article, Professor Rendleman examines this conflict in his three "chapters" involving racially motivated discharges of ...
