Liberals and the media are declaring victory after the left-wing radicals on the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals continued the barring of President Trump’s travel ban, which has been done in the past in former President Obama’s years.
But, remember, the 9th Circuit is the most overturned court in the country!
Although recent years have seen other circuits competing with the Ninth Circuit for the title of “Most Reversed,” the Ninth still appears to hold the unquestioned title. The Ninth Circuit’s best showing in recent years was October Term 2009, with a 60 percent reversal rate in the 15 cases on which certiorari was granted. The Sixth Circuit got the prize for highest reversal rate that year, with seven cases resulting in seven reversals, while the Seven Circuit came in a close second (91 percent reversal rate in eleven cases).
But in 2010, perhaps seeking to reclaim its position at the top of the heap, the Ninth Circuit was reversed a startling 19 times (79 percent), three times as many reversals as most circuits had cases before the Supreme Court. The same pattern continued in the 2011 (71 percent) and 2012 terms (86 percent), when the Ninth Circuit was reversed more than twice as many times as most circuits had cases before the Court.
The Liberal Media is celebrating now.
But don’t worry.
They won’t be celebrating when the US Supreme Court overturns the 9th Circuit Court again!
