Wenn mehrere Richter zur Entscheidung desselben Falles berufen sind, verschrankt sich die Aufgabe der normgebundenen Rechtserkenntnis mit der einer kollektiven Entscheidungsfindung ("group choice"). Die resultierenden Schwierigkeiten und Losungsverfahren werden seit der Antike diskutiert. Unterschiedliche Regelungen in europaischen Justiztraditionen werden dadurch gepragt, ob das Verfahrensergebnis in einem Kollegialakt oder in einer Mehrheit von Einzelerkenntnissen besteht.Abgesehen von Problemen der Mehrheitsbildung bei quantitativen oder qualitativen Divergenzen uber den Urteilstenor zwingt die Begrundungspflicht zur Findung von zugleich mehrheitsgetragenen wie stimmigen Urteilsgrunden. Dies fuhrt auf die Frage, ob die juristische Methode, die Singularmethode ist, nicht einer Erweiterung bedarf, die den Einigungsprozess im Richterkollegium einer nachvollziehbaren Methodik unterwirft.

There are moments in American history when all eyes are focused on a federal court: when its bench speaks for millions of Americans, and when its decision changes the course of history. More often, the story of the federal judiciary is simply a tale of hard work: of finding order in the chaotic system of state and federal law, local custom, and contentious lawyering. The Federal Courts is a story of all of these courts and the judges and justices who served on them, of the case law they made, and of the acts of Congress and the administrative organs that shaped the courts. But, even more importantly, this is a story of the courts' development and their vital part in America's history. Peter Charles Hoffer, Williamjames Hull Hoffer, and N. E. H. Hull's retelling of that history is framed the three key features that shape the federal courts' narrative: the separation of powers; the federal system, in which both the national and state governments are sovereign; and the widest circle: the democratic-republican framework of American self-government. The federal judiciary is not elective and its principal judges serve during good behavior rather than at the pleasure of Congress, the President, or the electorate. But the independence that lifetime tenure theoretically confers did not and does not isolate the judiciary from political currents, partisan quarrels, and public opinion. Many vital political issues came to the federal courts, and the courts' decisions in turn shaped American politics. The federal courts, while the least democratic branch in theory, have proved in some ways and at various times to be the most democratic: open to ordinary people seeking redress, for example. Litigation in the federal courts reflects the changing aspirations and values of America's many peoples. The Federal Courts is an essential account of the branch that provides what Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court Judge Oliver Wendell Homes Jr. called "a magic mirror, wherein we see reflected our own lives."

On the eve of a presidential election that may determine the makeup of Supreme Court justices for decades to come, prominent attorney James D. Zirin argues that the Court has become increasingly partisan, rapidly making policy choices right and left on bases that have nothing to do with law or the Constitution. Zirin explains how we arrived at the present situation and looks at the current divide through its leading partisans, Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor on the left and Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas on the right. He also examines four of the Court’s most controversial recent decisions – Hobby Lobby, Obamacare, gay marriage, and capital punishment – arguing that these politicized decisions threaten to undermine public confidence in the Supreme Court.
