Rationing Justice On Appeal: The Problems of the U.S. Courts of AppealsFaculty Books
ExcerptRationing Justice On Appeal: The Problems of the U.S. Court of Appealsexamines the problems and proposed reforms of the United States Courts of Appeals. Professor Baker begins this comprehensive and very readable work with the commandment of Learned Hand that "we shall not ration justice." The book, Baker says, is about the debate whether the U.S. courts of appeals have broken this commandment and, if not, whether Congress and the courts are headed in that direction. Although he demonstrates a broad perspective, his conclusion is that the changes in the operations within the circuit courts have violated Judge Hand's commandment and rendered second-hand justice.
