Abstract:

Research attempting to understand the growth of incarceration in the U.S. has pointed to the role of law-and-order politics. Historically, however, support for “getting tough on crime” has not necessarily translated into political support for expanding prison capacity—which is a necessary condition for mass incarceration. This paper examines the unintended effects of prison overcrowding litigation on incarceration using newly available information on prison civil rights litigation joined with cross-section time-series data from 49 states from 1972-1996. The paper concludes with a theoretical discussion on the interplay between judicial actions and local politics.
