Subnational Courts of Last Resort in Germany and the USA

Werner Reutter

In   this article I explore the judicial dimension of federal systems from a   subnational perspective. The findings show that regardles of the type   of federalism subnational courts of last resort underscore plurality  and  diversity and thus inject federal ideas into the two systems.   Federalism is, hence, not only an overall structure that shapes the   judicial system but an intrisic part of judcial review. If we discuss   constitutional adjudication and high courts in federal systems, we must   take the subnational level into account. Without giving this level its   due credit, we are unable to understand neither federalism in general   nor judicial federalism in particular.
