The appointment of Neil Gorsuch to fill the empty Supreme Court spot. Was a master class move and only time will tell how big help it would be in the future!
With the 9th circuit constantly trying to remove President Trump executing orders. Well, this is where it’s good to have the Supreme Court on your side!
But what is even better is that big changes are underway in the ninth circuit itself!
The death of Judge Stephen Reinhardt, 87, last week marks the end of an era for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit, which also saw the abrupt retirement of Judge Alex Kozinski in December. For more than three decades, the nation’s largest appeals courthad been the site of an epic legal struggle between the progressive liberal lion and the conservative-libertarian stalwart.
Fearing a conservative jurist would replace Judge Stephen Reinhardt, the liberal lion of the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, a prominent progressive legal scholar quietly urged him to retire in the spring of 2014.
U.C. Berkeley School of Law Dean Erwin Chemerinsky approached Reinhardt just months before the 2014 midterm elections and suggested he retire, The New York Times reported Saturday.
He refused to do that and when he died on March 29 this year he left an empty seat that will be taken by a conservative judge!
From the Daily Caller:
Trump has named two nominees for the Ninth Circuit thus far: Assistant U.S. Attorney Ryan Bounds was nominated for a seat in Oregon and former Hawaii Attorney General Mark Bennett for a seat in Hawaii. Neither has yet been confirmed.
The Senate confirmed 14 judges to federal circuit courts in 2017 — a record in the modern period.
There are currently 152 vacancies on the federal courts, according to the U.S. Judicial Conference.
Do you think that this is a good move?
