Richard Fallon likely did not plan the publication of this book to coincide with the aftermath of the Kavanaugh hearings or the phrase “Obama judges or Trump judges, Bush judges or Clinton judges.” After all, the author has been writing about legitimacy and the law for over a decade, and this book brings together many of his ideas in previously published law review articles. But the timing could not be better, all the more so for young scholars or those otherwise new to Fallon’s writings who will appreciate an accessible account for why and when Supreme Court decisions merit legitimacy even if we do not agree with them.
