Three factors that I believe permit the lower court to implement decisions at their discretion are; party affiliation, their ideology, or their religious norms. In addition, interpretation should be by someone other than the policy maker, a judge’s own personal policy preferences will also have an effect, and the manner in which a lower court judge interprets a policy established by a higher court could impact decisions. These factors could permit the implementation of decisions because it sets aside the personal morals a judge may have about a decision.
Two available remedies that the general populace is able to utilize to promote court decisions that a judge from the lower court has yet to implement are; brainstorming and opinions from other judges. I feel this can be helpful to a judge who is having a difficult time coming to a decision

Respond to statement
The executive branch of the government may be unable to implement court decisions because sometimes the issue may be so complex that it is difficult to get a clear policy. Like Terri said so many people and branches are involved it may be hard to work as individual thats why they all need to work as a team. Congress and The President may be involved and it can either be positive or negative. The impact creates more problems within the courts and there decision making. A solution would be stricter polices and standards. Or for the judges and executive branch to have certain rules or polices so they don’t step on each others feet.
