Judging Errors

by Jonathan H. Adler

The Sunday New York Times “Week in Review” section contains an article on how GOP control of the Senate may impact the “balance” of federal appellate courts. The print edition includes a chart that, as Howard Bashman explains, is riddled with errors. What Bashman doesn’t report is that the chart is credited to the Alliance for Justice, one of the liberal activist groups seeking to block Bush’s nominees. Apparently the AFJ”s own judicial database is also filled with errors. Don’t worry, AFJ says, they’re working on it. But these mistakes won’t stop them from opposing Bush’s nominees.
