Recent scholarship by Associate Professor Shaakirrah R. Sanders, Deconstructing Juryless Fact-Finding in Civil Cases, has been published in the William and Mary Bill of Rights Journal. In Deconstructing Juryless Fact-Finding in Civil Case, Professor Sanders investigates compensatory damage caps as an impermissible and ill-advised legislative mandate of juryless fact-finding. Professor Sanders explores juryless fact-finding in civil cases by turning to recent Sixth Amendment jurisprudence on mandatory criminal sentencing guidelines. Professor Sanders argues that compensatory damage caps and mandatory criminal sentencing guidelines lessen the jury’s role as fact-finder and intrude on the jury’s verdict or decree. Professor Sanders posits that the Sixth Amendment, which has rejected mandatory juryless fact-finding for purposes of fixing punishment, offers three lessons about common law criminal juries that should apply in the civil context. Professor Sandes urges adoption of cap alternatives that encourage individual review upon necessity. Such alternatives should also advance a states’ dual interest to protect civilly liable defendants against unreasonably high awards and severely injured plaintiffs against unreasonably low awards. The William and Mary Bill of Rights Journal ranks among the leading student-edited constitutional law journals by Washington and Lee’s law library. The journal publishes four issues per annual volume, which contain both student-edited professional articles and student-written notes.
