7-1 discussion: discovery and judicial efficiency

TextbookJudicial Process in America, Chapters 7 and 11 
Chapter 7 explores the “backstory” of judicial decision making: the influence of political leanings on judicial appointments and resulting court rulings. These considerations are most readily apparent in the realm of civil law, particularly related to business matters such as healthcare, minimum wage, and immigration. 
Chapter 11 provides an overview of types of civil law, including tort law, business law, and probate of estates. The chapter then walks through the civil litigation process, from filing through resolution or judgment. 
While reading, consider the following:

  • Is judicial process too intertwined with politics? Or, since the public elects the president who appoints Supreme Court justices, is it appropriate that judges have political leanings that reflect the will of the American electorate?
  • How does the civil litigation process differ from that of criminal cases?
  • Does the use of alternative dispute resolution provide a just and efficient means of resolving civil cases? Or does it unfairly deprive litigants of their day in court?
