Abstract:     
The Article provides a methodological critique of the Lindgren/Federalist study of a data set pertaining to the nominees of the George H.W. Bush and William Jefferson Clinton presidencies. The purpose of the study was to test the hypothesis that the ABA's ratings of federal judicial nominees were biased. This article identifies and explicates the study's principal flaws and explains their consequences for the conclusion reached by Professor Lindgren.
