ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the judicial legacy of Republican-appointed judges. According to the author, Republican-appointed judges handle most Western cases in federal court and have a slight bias against environmentalists compared to judges appointed by Democratic presidents. The author adds that Republican presidents have appointed 62% of all federal judges and says that the appointment of judges will be U.S. President George W. Bush's legacy.
