In an article unlikely to surprise anyone in the legal profession, the New York Times has revealed that while lawyers tend to be politically liberal, judges tend to be politically conservative. The article debates the extent to which the judiciary is representative of the American public, but it has little to say about the implications for citizens seeking to vindicate their rights in the courts. However, the findings should perhaps give employees pause as they calculate their odds of making it to trial and prevailing and the wisdom of negotiating resolutions to disputes with their employers.
