Presidential power in action : implementing Supreme Court detainee decisions by Darren A Wheeler( Book )
6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book systemically examines how Supreme Court detainee cases have been implemented over time, with an emphasis on the role of the president in this process. More specifically, it tests the hypothesis that an active, energetic executive branch has the ability to powerfully shape the implementation process of judicial decisions in a policy area it has deemed important. It concludes that the President, though just one of many actors in the implementation process, wields considerable influence and has a variety of tools that he can use to shape the manner in which judicial decisions are implemented and to achieve his policy goals. It also explores why presidents seem to have the upper hand in the implementation process when compared with the power and influence of Congress and the courts."--P. [4] of cover
Ins v. Chadha a study in judicial implementation by Darren A Wheeler( Book )
3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Many scholars point to the Supreme Court decision of INS v. Chadha (1983) as a prime example of a Court decision that was not fully and faithfully implemented. In this case, there is incontrovertible evidence that Congress discounted the Court's directive and continued to pass legislative vetoes despite the Court's holding that they were unconstitutional exercises of congressional power. Why did Congress continue to pass legislative vetoes even after the Court declared them to be unconstitutional? This research posits that the clarity of the Court's opinion, the social and political environment, and the preferences of congressional and executive officials were instrumental factors in the implementation process. The complex inter-branch dynamics uncovered in this area through case studies involving the EEOC, The Treasury Department, and Immigration Law provide some support for each of these hypotheses but fail to point to a single explanation for the continued use of legislative vetoes after the Court's decision
