Assistant Professor Dino Christenson, along with two of his colleagues from The Ohio State University (Janet Box-Steffensmeier and Matthew Hitt), published an article titled: “Quality Over Quantity: Amici Influence and Judicial Decision Making” in the most recent edition of the field’s flagship journal – the American Political Science Review (APSR). The article focuses on interest groups and their interest on the Supreme Court. Specifically, the authors focus on social networks and utilize cutting edge network analysis to evaluate the relative influence of different groups and how the Court is affected by interest groups filing amicus briefs. The article is available at the APSR.
