Abstract

This response to Nicholas Quinn Rosenkranz's critique of our earlier paper, "The Law of Other States," argues that although Rosenkranz has much of interest to say about Condorcet's influence on the founders, Condorcet's influence, or lack of influence, does not bear on the question of whether the Condorcet Jury Theorem provides a reason for courts to use foreign law and judicial decisions as relevant information for deciding cases.
