Abstract

Recent Supreme Court decisions appear to depart from the longstanding principle that an appellee or respondent need not cross-appeal or cross-petition in order to support the judgment below by either challenging the reasoning of the lower court or raising arguments which the lower court did not consider. Mr. Stern examines the nature and possible rationales for these recent departures, and argues that the traditional doctrine should be retained.
