The approach of viewing federal judges in the United States as baseball umpires has gained traction with the recent nomination processes of the Supreme Court, and sparked debate in both legal academia and across the political spectrum. The Yale Law Journal Online is therefore pleased to announce the publication of The Justice as Commissioner: Benching the Judge-Umpire Analogy by Aaron Zelinsky (Yale Law School). Mr. Zelinsky offers a timely assessment and critique of this analogy, as well as alternatives to envisioning the role of the Supreme Court.
