On Doing a Values Study of a High Court Decision.
Piele, Philip K.
The application of cultural jurisprudence as a mode of inquiry into high court decisions is the subject of this paper, which includes a discussion of how to do a values study. The discussion centers on a Supreme Court case--Ingraham v. Wright--a 1977 decision that upheld the use of corporal punishment in public schools. The author discusses his method of inquiry, including insights and discovered interrelationships, that led to certain conclusions about how the case was decided. The paper concludes that the discovery and use of relationships drawn from books and from pure insight are crucial to the advancement of conceptual frameworks that give shape and direction to a values study.
