In 2011, the 9th Circuit was reversed in 19 out of 26 cases, with 12 of the reversals being unanimous. Some quotes from recent U.S. Supreme Court reversals highlight the lawlessness of the 9th Circuit: one decision was termed “as inexplicable as it is unexplained;” in another, the factual assertions by the 9th Circuit were “simply false”; and in a third, it was found that the 9th Circuit’s opinion undermined confidence because “judicial disregard is inherent in the opinion of the Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit here under review.”
It is troubling when a reversal is unanimous because it is a clear sign that legal precedent was completely ignored.
Isn't the 9th Circuit located in SanFrancisco.....that explains it all. A liberal court trying to legislate from the bench....not their job...just plain wrong.
I believe you'll find that the 9th circuit has a long history of such decisions, especially as they apply to death-penalty cases. It isn't just 2011.
Hardest of all issues facing the electorate over the last several decades is that of the appellate courts of the U.S..When the Constitution layed out the three branches of government, the President, the Congress (house and senate) and the Supreme Court, it was noted and obviouse that the court was the weakest of the three. The Courts initial role was determining whether laws passed by the congress and signed by the president were followiing constitutional law. It wasn't until decades later that Chief Justice Marshall gave the court it's current status as all powerful.
The Supreme court is not:However; without control. The Congress has the right to impeach justices. Further the lower appellate and other Federal courts are under the control of Congress and President and if found to be unconstitutional in their decisions can be called to answer to congress and even expelled or impeached thus ending their status.
Our forefathers had the insight to realize that if any one of the three powers became to oppressive to the people, they could be reigned in by the people through their representatives.
My opinion, When a Judge hears a case and is given a chance to render a verdict based on the evidence and arguement presented, they must, regardless of personal feelings, rule on the law and the Constitution of the United States of America. If they don't, and have been shown to oppose the Constitution on numerous occasions, than the body should be found in contempt, impeached and removed from the bench. At least one Presidential candidate agrees.
