From the article:
Quote:
When judges cannot rely upon past decisions, they sometimes turn to law review articles. Law reviews are impartial, and famed for meticulous cite-checking.
Bold by TBM.

The author spends the rest of the article showing without a doubt that many law review articles are not impartial.

In a similar vein, it is disheartening to see SCOTUS justices turning to foreign law and jurist reviews when they can't find domestic decisions that support their opinions. Although I suppose the citing of Blackstone would fall into this category, somehow it seems different considering how much our own law today is based upon English Common Law.
