Federal judges appointed by Republicans give tougher sentences on street crime, two Northwestern University legal scholars say, while Democratic appointees take a stricter view of white-collar offenses.
The study by Northwestern School of Law professors Emerson Tiller and Max Schanzenbach will be published in the Journal of Law, Economics and Organization in 2007, according to the university, which plans to release the study Tuesday.
Because sentencing information was not available for individual judges, Tiller and Schanzenbach had to extrapolate from the body of decisions that came from each federal district while considering the political make-up of that district.

There are three ways to get a case heard before a federal court: a conflict between parties in two different states, a question regarding the United States Constitution, or a question regarding the federal laws of the United States.
When Grable asked to be moved back to the state court, claiming the federal court didn’t have the authority to hear the case, Federal Judge David W. McKeague said no, ruling from the bench that the case was under federal jurisdiction.
First, although based on federal tax law, Grable said its case did not present a federal question and should be heard in a state court.

 St. Petersburg - Johnson's Russia List 4-8-03
It is very likely that the next governor of St Petersburg will not be the presidential envoy to the Northwestern Federal District Valentina Matviyenko, appointed by Vladimir Putin last month in a move which was perceived by many as the former vice-premier’s first step to the governorship.
Chernenko’s appointment as the first deputy to the presidential envoy in the Northwestern Federal District may entail some negative consequences for Valentina Ivanovna Matviyenko, who agreed to replace Viktor Cherkessov hoping, first and foremost, to use it as a launch pad for the St Petersburg gubernatorial elections in 2004.
At the same time, some observers suggest that Matviyenko may not use the office of the presidential envoy to the Northwestern District as a stepping-stone to enter the race for the governor’s post.
