A new study says judges, at least ones sitting on state benches, are more objective than they get credit for. The report, forthcoming in the University of Pennsylvania Law Review, says judges by and large are able to exercise professional judgement and reach consensus on disputes that polarize the general public.
The study, which took more than two years to conduct, included about 1,500 subjects: 253 judges, 225 lawyers, 250 law students (from five schools including Harvard and Yale), and 800 adults members of the general public.
The compound sets two five-story blocks of glass on top of a thick concrete podium that extends around a small brick fire station from 1928. The 264,000-square-foot structure places the new headquarters for the San Francisco Police Department above district police and fire stations and a 240-car parking garage.

Yay, for the Chief.
