About 63 percent of the cases heard by Alabama's Supreme Court involved a party or attorney who had made a campaign contribution to at least one of the sitting justices. This study is part of the Institute's Money in Judicial Politics project examining who contributes to judicial races, how often contributors appear before a judge to whom they contributed, and how their cases fared in the judicial system.
