The study of decision making on multimember courts has, in the past ten or so years, attracted increasing academic attention. In this Essay, I would like to briefly discuss this academic literature on multimember courts in an attempt to relate Judge Wood's personal experiences to this literature. My hope is that this exercise will both situate Judge Wood's personal experiences in more general scholarly accounts of judicial behavior and breathe life into the more abstract academic work.
