  • Remedial Practice Beyond Constitutional Text
    • Authors: Leckey R.
      Pages: 1 - 35
      Abstract: This Article advances the comparative constitutional literature by examining the exercise of remedial discretion in rights litigation. It compares how the Supreme Court of Canada and the Constitutional Court of South Africa remedy unconstitutional legislation under their respective, relatively new, bills of rights. It uses an internal legal approach and, rejecting universalism and convergence, it pays attention to difference in constitutional texts. By reporting remedial practices and studying the written and unwritten factors that judges identify as conditioning their remedial determinations, the Article studies the significant gap between authoritative text and practice. In a warning for those who draft bills of rights, who rely on their texts to forecast judicial practice, or who simply aim to delineate and understand the exercise of judicial power under bills of rights, judges’ discussion reveals that the scope of action they perceive as legitimate may differ from what a rights instrument’s text implies. This gap has implications for efforts to classify forms of judicial review as strong-form or weak-form, as it may reduce the effective distance between different models as they appear on paper. The Article identifies shifting and contradictory views about reading-in versus invalidating legislation, and about immediate versus delayed orders. Based on its comparison of judicial remedial practices, the Article flags the unavoidable uncertainty of applying a bill of rights to legislation. It interprets the practices of the two countries’ highest courts as embodying a preference for a judicial posture of legislative engagement over one of constitutional enforcement. This conception of the judicial role emerges from similarities in practice, despite differences in the authorizing constitutional texts. The Article establishes a firm basis for normative evaluation of the legitimacy of judicial remedial discretion exercised with a view to engaging the democratic branches of government.

  • The Chinese Communist Party and People’s Courts: Judicial Dependence
           in China
    • Authors: Li L.
      Pages: 37 - 74
      Abstract: Proper understanding of the Chinese judicial system is often made frustratingly difficult due to the clash of two equally prevalent rival views of the relationship between the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and China’s courts. According to the first, the CCP is a frequent violator of the law and makes its claim to establish the rule of law a farcical act, while on the second view, very often expressed in defense against the first, the CCP is portrayed as the only reliable guardian that can buttress the otherwise vulnerable courts and subsequently protect the law and order that it seeks to establish.In this article, I intend to present an integrated and coherent explanation of the relationship between the CCP and China’s courts and to explore the root cause that has led to the perceived contradictory impacts of the former upon the latter. To achieve this goal, I will start by tracking and examining the institutional history of the Party Political- Legal Committees (PPLCs), followed by an investigation of the mechanisms through which PPLCs have conducted supervision over courts. My primary finding is that the relationship between the CCP and the courts is embedded in the institutional design of the partystate, under which the CCP and only the CCP has the authority to compel compliance by individual state institutions and by the state as a whole. As a result, courts are authorized to apply the law but lack the authority to compel compliance with the law by institutions of equal or higher rank in the power hierarchy defined by the CCP. The consequence of this arrangement exhibits two features, in fact two sides of the same coin. On the one hand, the CCP assumes a paternalistic role, obliged to provide courts with support to gain access to operational funds and other resources and to lend courts the necessary authority to compel compliance from institutions normally beyond the reach of the courts’ own authority. On the other hand, the CCP is able to preserve the supreme authority of decision making in selected and prioritized areas, where it can determine judicial outcomes in an arbitrary fashion to advance its political agenda and goals through both or either of the macro and micro approaches.

  • Judicial Strategies for Reviewing Conflicting Expert Evidence: Biases,
           Heuristics, and Higher-Order Evidence
    • Authors: Perez O.
      Pages: 75 - 120
      Abstract: This Article seeks to improve our understanding of the strategies judges use to deal with conflicting expert evidence. In contrast to the paradigm of the Herculean judge, the Article hypothesizes that courts resolve epistemic disputes by drawing, in part, on higher-order heuristics, which either supplement or replace in-depth scrutiny of the evidence. These strategies are the product of pragmatic pressures reflecting both epistemic and institutional constraints. Further, the Article argues that these second-order strategies are not necessarily aligned with the goals of the substantive law governing the dispute (tort law in the context of this Article). In order to shed light on the foregoing questions, the Article empirically examines the epistemic strategies employed by Israeli judges, drawing on a representative sample of tort cases. The Article analyzes specifically how judges deal with conflicting experts’ opinions regarding levels of medical impairment. Drawing on the findings of this empirical study and on a comprehensive literature review (covering both common law and civil law jurisdictions), the Article explores the policy dilemma of how to govern expert evidence in court. It argues that the civil law model of court-appointed experts holds significant advantages over the adversarial regime of multiple experts. The Article examines the regulatory challenges underlying the adoption of a model of court-appointed experts and proposes some institutional mechanisms that respond to these challenges. These mechanisms require a departure from the classical civil law model. The Article proposes in this context a model of differential regulation, which distinguishes between various evidentiary contexts.

  • Legislative Inconsistency and the “Smoking Out” of Illicit
           Motives
    • Authors: Petersen N.
      Pages: 121 - 145
      Abstract: This Article analyzes consistency arguments that are common in the case law of several courts relying on the proportionality principle in their individual rights jurisprudence. It examines cases from five different constitutional or supreme courts, and argues that the main function of consistency considerations is the “smoking out” of illicit motives. Legislative inconsistency is an indication that the legislature also pursued different aims than the ones which were stated explicitly. The parliamentary majority may have been captured by interest groups, or it might have had incentives to discriminate against societal minorities. This hypothesis is confirmed by the analyzed cases. While courts are not able to control the motives of the legislature directly, consistency considerations provide indications for legislative motivation.

  • Ownership and Exclusivity: Two Visions, Two Traditions
    • Authors: Porat B.
      Pages: 147 - 190
      Abstract: In recent years, many have come to consider the right to exclude as the Punctum Archimedis that the concept of property is based upon. In the present article, I seek to reevaluate the relations between ownership and exclusivity from an unusual vantage point: a comparison between two deeply-rooted legal traditions—Anglo-American law and Jewish law. For this purpose, I analyze four fundamental doctrinal differences between these two legal traditions, namely the cases of unrequested improvement, of benefiting from someone else’s property, of performing legally binding transactions in respect of another person’s property without obtaining pre-consent, and of imposing positive duties on a non-owner in favor of the owner. The different solutions that were developed by each of the legal traditions explored herein are sharply and clearly reflected in these traditions’ unique respective visions regarding notions of ownership and exclusivity. This article intends to bring out the latent connections between the four aforementioned test cases, tracing the threads that weave the various doctrines into coherent conceptions. Ultimately, it also places each of the two legal systems discussed as a challenging mirror image for the other, calling for fresh thinking released from fixations.
