Summary

This chapter evaluates two dimensions that form a metric for evaluating the quality of courts’ decisions: the outcome of the case and the strength of the case determined by the level of dissensus. These two dimensions create four kinds of judicial decisions characterized as those that are either strongly or weakly deferential and those that provide strong or weak checks on the government. The chapter focuses on weak judicial vetoes issued by the two courts, noting their prevalence and connection to contentious political issues experienced in each country.
