February 9, 2017

It's interesting that this bill was introduced last month. Were it not for the current Immigration E.O. reaching the 9th Circuit, we probably would have never heard of it?

"As judges on the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals weigh the legality of President Trump’s immigration executive order, a Republican push to split up the controversial court -- and shrink its clout -- is gaining steam on Capitol Hill. 

Republican Sens. Jeff Flake and John McCain of Arizona introduced legislation last month to carve six states out of the San Francisco-based court circuit and create a brand new 12th Circuit."

What do you think ATS members? Should part of the 9th circuit be converted into a new 12th circuit court of appeals?

That cesspool has needed to be drained for decades. I do not support the people backing it, but I do support the idea.

Oh boy, it's about to get loud... This one probably should've went into mudpit.

As for court splitting- I don't know. How many more courts that will inevitably become partisan do we need? Seems like it's just becoming more of a headache than actually serving a purpose.
But then again, I'm a carpenter, not a politician..

The reasons for splitting it make sense, besides the political bias of the court.

The demographics of the region have grown this court to a size that is inefficient.

The 9th Circuit will just declare the Bill Unconstitutional...

^^ What BlueAjah said.

The 9th circuit has become too large to effectively be a single "Circuit" anymore.

But now that the Trump Immigration EO is in front of them, this will become *very* political very quickly...

Is called the Ninth Circus for a reason.

Wow, thanks for the heads up. Is there no regulation that controls the size of a circuit court? Is it based upon number of citizens? Again, I apologize for my lack of legal proceedings knowledge.

And the culling of the government's checks and balances begins. Can't politicize the judicial department? Defang it.

The 9th probably has a huge case load as it is.



If they break it up and make everything north of California the 12th.

It might not be a bad thing.

They could base the court in Seattle.

Based on that map, the area is obviously too large to be supported by a single court.

Splitting it should be a common sense move.

There was a lower judge interviewed on FOX yesterday evening. He said that the backlog for the 9th CCOA is currently over 13,000 cases! Since there is no travel ban in effect at this time, that court is in no hurry to render a decision, considering its political makeup.

Going by that map I think it has been LONG over due! Is this supposed to be done by land mass or population?

right....sure....THAT'S the reason the republicans want to split up the 9th, because of it's inefficiency...

so let's take stock...
1...the conservative republicans now will control all 3 branches of the federal government.
2...the majority of state governments are controlled by republicans.
3...the MSM is under attack by the republicans, because the majority do not agree with the right.
4...universities and colleges are under attack by the republicans, because the majority do not agree with the right.
5...now the 9th circuit is under attack by republicans because they are perceived as not supporting the right.

anyone see a pattern here?....

Maybe that is one of the biggest problems with this court. A court should not support left or right idiologies...it should only support the law. If you want to change policy you join a different branch of government, as a judge they are to uphold not change the laws.!

Well, if the Commie leftists had bothered to show up and vote, they wouldn't have this problem. Would they?

So sad, too bad. Suck it up buttercup.

Of course they did.

Why have checks and balances if you can have total control.

Totalitarianism --- good for you whether you want it or not.

Do you understand any of this? Do you understand it was set to be broke up before this?
Because of caseload?
From the source:

They argue that the 9th is too big, too liberal and too slow resolving cases.
“It represents 20 percent of the population -- and 40 percent of the land mass is in that jurisdiction. It’s just too big,” Flake told Fox News on Wednesday. “We have a bedrock principle of swift justice and if you live in Arizona or anywhere in the 9th Circuit, you just don’t have it.”
