Justice Takes a Recess examines why and under what circumstances presidents use the recess appointment power to appoint judges to the Federal courts. The authors show that the use of the recess power upsets the carefully calculated separation of powers envisioned by the Framers, shifting power away from one branch of government towards another.

Of time and the constitution -- An historical overview and analysis of judicial recess appointments -- Supreme court recess appointments and voting -- Appellate court recess appointments and voting (with Pamela Corley) -- A look at modern judicial recess appointments -- A skeptical view of judicial recess appointments.
