Editorial Reviews


'Precedent is one of law's eternal problems. One might think there is nothing else to say. One would be wrong, as Randy J. Kozel proves with this clear, cogent, and interesting new framing of the problems and a plausible, intelligent approach to a solution.' Adrian Vermeule, Ralph S. Tyler Professor of Constitutional Law, Harvard Law School

'Randy J. Kozel argues that judges should subordinate their individual views and embrace a common project of legal development. In Settled Versus Right, he puts precedent back at the center of constitutional theory.' Jack M. Balkin, Knight Professor of Constitutional Law and the First Amendment, Yale Law School

'Kozel's defense of the practice of precedent is comprehensive, persuasive, imaginative, and unremittingly fair-minded in its treatment of opposing positions. Although the book focuses on stare decisis in the Supreme Court of the United States, its analysis will be illuminating for everyone interested in understanding the nature of common law reasoning, both in the United States and elsewhere.' Frederick Schauer, David and Mary Harrison Distinguished Professor of Law, University of Virginia

Book Description

This book provides an in-depth analysis of the role of precedent in American judicial practice, while also developing a new theory for using precedent as a bridge between judges who are otherwise inclined to disagree.
