This paper analyzes the behavior of state high court judges on non-unanimous cases involving the issue of sex-based discrimination during the period 1971-81. Using logistic regression the authors test the ability of several personal attribute models (including related factors such as mode of selection) to predict the votes of judges in these cases. Toward that end, the critical variables are type and place of legal education, party affiliation, and to a lesser extent age and method of selection.
