F.E. Guerra-Pujol

There is an interesting working paper entitled: "Which Judges Write Their Own Opinions (And Should We Care?)" [which can be downloaded at ssrn.com/abstract=715062] that discusses some of the issues raised in the entry. My own take is that federal judges may not use the code of ethics to hide embarassing information from the public (the embarassing information being the fact that so many judicial opinions are ghostwritten). Judge Posner mentions this problem in his recent Foreward to the Supreme Court's 2004 Term.
