Arbitrary Justice

Title Arbitrary Justice
Subtitle The Power of the American Prosecutor
Author "Davis, Angela J."
Publisher Oxford University Press
Date 2009
Month April
Summary "Examines the expanding power of prosecutors, from mandatory minimum sentencing laws that enhance prosecutorial control over the outcome of cases to the increasing politicization of the office. Davis uses powerful stories of individuals caught in the system to illustrate how the day-to-day practices and decisions of prosecutors produce unfair and unequal treatment of both defendants and victims. Davis argues that prosecutors are also under-regulated and lack accountability. The mechanisms that purport to hold prosecutors accountable are weak and ineffectual, and fosters a climate tolerance for misconduct. Arbitrary Justice challenges the legal community and concerned citizens to pursue and enact meaningful standards of conduct and effective methods of accountability."
