Here is how I have organized my talk this morning. I begin by addressing why fair and impartial courts are important. I look back at the Framers and distill certain postulates about what makes for fair and impartial courts. Spoiler alert: the Framers were right. I then explore three related topics that bear on the discussion: judicial discretion and judgment, the assertion that judges are no better than politicians in black robes, and the complexity added to the discussion of judicial decision-making by judicial analytics and legal realism. I then turn to three threats to judicial independence and to fair and impartial judging, as opposed to tendentious decision making. Each of these threats is mainly to the independence of our state courts and state judges. Each of these threats runs directly counter to the vision of the Framers as they structured the federal courts.
