Title: " Idaho Courts: Can They Remain Independent and Impartial in a Hyper-Partisan Era?"
- Has the judiciary come to be regarded as a third political branch of government?
- Should judges be selected based on political affiliation and positions taken on issues likely to come before them?
- Does civic education provided by schools and the media adequately inform the public about the judicial process and reasons for judicial decisions?
- If there is a civic education deficit, what can citizens do about it?
