Problem-Solving Courts and the Psycholegal Error

It has been more than a decade since I began railing against
the therapeutic jurisprudence movement in general and drug courts in
particular. Much has changed in the world of therapeutic courts in
that decade. Every two‐stoplight town now has a drug court, and every
three‐stoplight one, a veterans court. Every town big enough to
claim to be a community must have a community court. And every court
everywhere dealing with low‐level crimes must be called a
“problem‐solving court.” I guess that makes my felony court a
“problem‐creating court.”
