ABSTRACT
The article offers information about the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. In 2002, the Supreme Court turned Republican when former Chief Justice John P. Flaherty retired, who was succeeded by Justice J. Michael Eakin. According to the author, Democratic justices are marked to be liberal, to interpret a constitution as providing protection to individuals and to decide against the prosecution in criminal appeals. The court voted in favor of the prosecution at around 75% rate.
