This article reviews the work of enterprising scholars. It studies the 2006 postelectoral conflict, and then describes and analyzes Mexico's greatest success story in the creation of independent judicial bodies. It also investigates the institutional changes to the Mexican judiciary and the independence and authority of the Supreme Court after the large-scale reforms of 1994. The article includes a summary of relevant cases from the 1990s and 2000s, as well as a study of the present state of the citizen and judiciary perception of the court.
