Lee Epstein; Jack Knight; Olga Shvetsova, 2009, "Replication data for: Selecting Selection Systems", hdl:1902.1/10332, Harvard Dataverse, V1, UNF:3:o4h2iopYujJ/IWj3N7/S5w==
Why do societies choose particular institutions of judicial selection and retention? Why do they formally alter those choices? We attempt to address these questions, first, by assessing what we can only call the standard story of judicial selection systems. On this explanation, t...

Lee Epstein; René Lindstädt; Jeffrey A. Segal; Chad Westerland, 2009, "Replication data for: The Changing Dynamics of Senate Voting on Supreme Court Nominees", hdl:1902.1/10347, Harvard Dataverse, V1, UNF:3:BMl3qxqF90ojQbhkBDfhzQ==
A near-universal consensus exists that the nomination of Robert Bork in 1987 triggered a new regime in the Senate's voting over presidential nominees—a regime that de-emphasizes ethics, competence, and integrity and stresses instead politics, philosophy, and ideology. Nonetheless...

Lee Epstein; Jeffrey A. Segal; Jennifer Nicoll Victor, 2009, "Replication data for: Dynamic Agenda-setting on the United States Supreme Court: an Empirical Assessment", hdl:1902.1/10338, Harvard Dataverse, V1, UNF:3:ju0TNHWK8EpOfUFQCsV/rw==
Because agenda setting is one of the most important activities undertaken by Supreme Court justices, it is hardly surprising to find a rather large body of literature devoted to how they go about performing this task. What is surprising is that the bulk of the agenda-setting lite...

Lee Epstein; Jack Knight; Andrew D. Martin, 2009, "Replication data for: Constitutional Interpretation from a Strategic Perspective", hdl:1902.1/10342, Harvard Dataverse, V1, UNF:3:V0eJcy7jUnmti9Rq8XrdHw==
In the late 1950s, the U.S. Supreme Court decided two major constitutional cases that touched on a similar topic- the rights of witnesses to refuse to answer questions put to them by congressional committees investigating subversive activities in America. In the first, Watkins v....

Lee Epstein; Jeffrey A. Segal, 2009, "Replication data for: Measuring Issue Salience", hdl:1902.1/10336, Harvard Dataverse, V1, UNF:3:3sUmXQni7J7kjSLcRZwu6g==
The concept of issue salience has figured prominently in many studies of American political life. Long lines of research have taught us that both citizens and political elites may respond differently to issues that are salient to them than to those that are not. Yet analysts maki...

Lee Epstein; Jack Knight; Andrew D. Martin, 2009, "Replication data for: The Norm of Prior Judicial Experience and Its Consequences for Career Diversity on the U.S. Supreme Court", hdl:1902.1/10340, Harvard Dataverse, V1, UNF:3:Rkcw5Exsnu1jrP5oc+2sKg==
For at least three decades now, those charged with nominating and confirming justices to the U.S. Supreme Court seem to be following a norm of prior judicial experience—one that makes previous service on the (federal) bench a near prerequisite for office. Largely as a result of t...

Christina L. Boyd; Lee Epstein; Andrew D. Martin, 2009, "Replication data for: Untangling the Causal Effects of Sex on Judging", hdl:1902.1/10334, Harvard Dataverse, V1, UNF:3:KPOSDlHIMQWvGIPy/5j1yA==
We enter the debate over the role of sex in judging by addressing the two predominant empirical questions it raises: whether male and female judges decide cases distinctly ("individual effects") and whether the presence of a female judge on a panel causes her male colleagues to b...

Lee Epstein; Jeffrey A. Segal, 2009, "Replication data for: Trumping the First Amendment", hdl:1902.1/10330, Harvard Dataverse, V1, UNF:3:7R5iZlk4gyeBrX64vCiUug==
Our primary goal in this article is to assess whether the relationship between the ideology of Supreme Court justices and their support for the First Amendment guarantees of speech, press, assembly, and association has declined, such that left-of-center justices no longer consist...

Lee Epstein; Jack Knight, 2009, "Replication data for: Constitutional Borrowing and Nonborrowing", hdl:1902.1/10339, Harvard Dataverse, V1, UNF:3:o4h2iopYujJ/IWj3N7/S5w==
Constitutional borrowing comes in different forms. Judges may consider decisions reached by their counterparts in other societies when resolving disputes; constitutional framers may look abroad when considering what provisions to etch into their documents; even citizens may be at...

Nancy Staudt; Lee Epstein; Peter Wiedenbeck; René Lindstädt; Ryan J. Vander Wielen, 2009, "Replication data for: Judging Statutes: Interpretive Regimes", hdl:1902.1/10327, Harvard Dataverse, V1, UNF:3:1UhSsWZtk7M5aPFABu0SDA==
Scholars, judges, and commentators have long puzzled over the best method to locate the meaning of a statute. The importance of this project has prompted countless theorists to devise competing modes of interpretation that rely on various forms of evidence, including statutory te...
