Vincent M. Bonventre, professor of law at Albany Law School, recently authored a book, Streams of Tendency on the New York Court: Ideological and Jurisprudential Patterns in the Judges’ Voting and Opinions.
Published by William S. Hein & Co., Inc., Streams of Tendency is the seminal study of New York State’s highest court. Bonventre, a prominent judicial scholar and noted expert on the New York Court of Appeals, examines the judges’ voting and opinions in nearly 400 divided public law cases from 1987 through 2001 and uncovers how the jurisprudential values and outlooks of individual judges have shaped the Court’s decisions. Highly readable, this book will be of interest to attorneys, judges, legal scholars, academics, or anyone curious about the judicial process in general.
