Article of the Week
Judges as susceptible to gender bias as laypeople -- and sometimes more so
At the behest of a group of trial court judges, a postdoctoral fellow at the American Bar Foundation conducted a study comparing legal decision making among laypeople and sitting trial court judges. Participants made decisions about how to resolve two different cases: a shared custody case and a workplace discrimination case. The researchers varied the race and gender of the litigants in each mock case. Participants then filled out a survey designed to measure their personal attitudes related to race and gender. The researchers found that sitting judges were more likely than laypeople to award additional parenting time to mothers. They also found that the more the judges held "traditional" views regarding gender roles, the more likely they were to find in favor of a woman in a custody case and against a woman bringing a workplace discrimination case.
