Two major challenges in legal decision making arise from the high complexity of the cases and from the high level of uncertainty caused by incomplete or missing information. In most cases it is not possible to apply Bayesian probability and legal standards prohibit the application of fastand- frugal heuristics. Based on a connectionist approach to decision making, Simon (2004) argued that decision making in complex decisions is governed by coherence-based reasoning. The underlying parallel constraint satisfaction processes, which belong to the (LCM) system. arc incomparable and enable individuals to quickly integrate huge ammmts or inl(lnmnion (Giiielmcr & Betsch, 2007). elaborating on this approach. two studies Ire· conducted in 11h1ch individuals Ire presented with a complex legal case. In the lirst study. the standard or prool' and the predictive power of evidence are manipulated, and in the second study, the standard of proof and the ll·aming of the case (arbitration vs. criminal case). The data replicate and cxtcnJ lindings from Simon (2004), and support the parallel constraint satisfaction approach to decision making. To fortify my understanding of the problems associated with loss of information and ineffiecicnt storage methods. this affect quality in a running of' a given organization.
