In the article published in 2012 by Review of Central and East European Law, two American lawyers, William Pomeranz and Max Gutbrod, gave a detailed analysis of both general and technical aspects of the development of judge-made law in Russia. Their particular attention is to the years 2008-2010, when the Supreme Arbitrazh Court and Constitutional Court have jointly provided a legal mechanism for that development. The authors discuss the consequences of the novelties in question, as well as their relation to the principles of separation of powers and judicial independence.
