New 'Eyes on Justice' Released

The newest edition of Eyes on Justice, Justice at Stake’s newsletter, is now available online here.

The newsletter covers an array of topics including retired Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor’s recent remarks to a Washington, D.C. event co-hosted by Justice at Stake.

It also recaps a report co-authored by Justice at Stake, entitled “The New Politics of Judicial Elections 2000-2009: Decade of Change;” a movement toward more contentious and politicized retention elections in some formerly quiet states; a judge’s overturning the U.S. military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy toward its gay members; and a continuing controversy over stalled judicial nominations in the U.S. Senate.
