Independent Judges in a Democracy
A Research Note
This research note tests the proposition that different local selection processes recruit judges with different outlooks about tile roles they aught to perform Wi democratic officials and as legal professionals. Based on interviews with ninety-four state and local trial judges in California, Louisiana, and Massachusetts, I conclude that there is no statistically significant relationship between selection process and role orientation.
