Description
Lopeman examines the impact that advocacy of intentional judicial activism by a justice of a state supreme court can have on establishing the court as a policy maker. He examines the "attitudinal" model and the "judicial role" model of decision making and concludes that, while the attitudinal model might describe the decision-making process in the U.S. Supreme Court, the judicial role model better describes decision making in state supreme courts. This judicial role model allows the activist to transform a court into a policy maker.
