Pennsylvania's partisan Supreme Court races have been drawing more than $1 million in campaign contributions for more than a decade, and about 27 percent of the Court's cases over a 10-year period involved people who had given to the campaigns of at least one of the 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.
