Abstract:     
After an unsuccessful attempt in 1982, the California electorate removed three of the Justices of the Supreme Court of California in the 1986 elections because they were soft on crime. This article studies the voting patterns of the three justices who were on the California Supreme Court before and after the elections, revealing three distinct judicial and political strategies.
