The use of stakeholder theory as a prism for medical parole reform is the foundational issue in this qualitative case study of the Louisiana Sentencing Commission. Stakeholder saliency is examined using the traits of power, legitimacy, and urgency. An examination of the public policy reform effort by the Commission revealed that legitimacy and power allowed two groups to be elevated beyond the stakeholder role, to that of powerbroker. The powerbroker role was pivotal in the lack of significant reform being achieved.
