    The President, the Court, and Policy Implementation
    in Presidential Studies Quarterly , Volume 47, Issue 1 ,  2017 ,  122-145
    In contrast to research focused on presidential–congressional relations, this article explores the ways in which the president strategically accounts for the courts when deciding how to best influence policy implementation. I argue that as the courts become more ideologically distant from the president and thus more likely to strike down administrative actions, agencies engage in less rulemaking while the president issues more executive orders to supplement agencies' authority to act. An empirical analysis of federal macro-level data as well as issue-specific data on labor and environmental policy yields support for the theory's hypotheses.
