Ninth Circuit

Defense of the Ninth Circuit

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals gets plenty of criticism.  Not like you need me to point it out to you, but I have done so, along with pointing out some defenses.  See here, here and here.

NLJ’s L.A. Legal Pad links to an article in The National Law Journal (unfortunately, behind a subscription wall) with this introduction: “[C]atcallers should recognize that 27-judge court does not get to pick its cases and faces a great mix and concentration of cases compared to other circuits, finds a story in The National Law Journal.”

Might be worth checking out.
