Supported by Fact Check of the Day This claim about the federal appeals court circuit, made by President Trump, a Republican senator and conservative pundits, is false by one metric and true by another. ByLinda Qiu Nov. 26, 2018 What Was Said Well, first of all, it is clearly the case that there are a lot of bad opinions that come out of the Ninth Circuit. That’s why they get turned over at a rate higher than any other circuit in the nation, and it’s legitimate to talk about that. — Senator Ben Sasse, Republican of Nebraska, in an interview on “Fox News Sunday” Justice Roberts can say what he wants, but the 9th Circuit is a complete & total disaster. It is out of control, has a horrible … [Read more...] about Does the Ninth Circuit Have the Highest Reversal Rate in the Country?

POLITICS 11/23/2018 02:23 am ET Conway lays out data tearing holes in web of misinformation about court Trump loves to hate. By Mary Papenfuss Kellyanne Conway’s attorney husband went toe-to-toe with President Donald Trump on Thursday, this time defending the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals even as Trump bashed it again — and again. George Conway, a conservative Republican who would not typically defend rulings of the court criticized for its more liberal leanings, accused Trump of using “misleading’ statistics to attack the 9th Circuit. Trump ripped the court as a “complete and total disaster” in a tweet Thursday, called it a “thorn in our side” in a phone call with service members, and told reporters later that a judge who “knows nothing about it” made a “ridiculous ruling” against his immigrant asylum crackdown. A day earlier he slammed the court because its decisions are … [Read more...] about George Conway Scorches Trump’s ‘Misleading’ Attack On 9th Circuit Court Of Appeals
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit ruled Friday that a lawsuit by supporters of Donald Trump against San Jose police officers who allegedly failed to protect them from an anti-Trump riot in June 2016 could proceed, defeating the city’s appeal. The three-judge panel upheld the lower court’s decision that the officers were not entitled to qualified immunity from suit because they “violated clearly established rights” — assuming, for the moment, that the plaintiff’s factual claims against them were true.The lawsuit stems from a riot that took place outside the San Jose Convention Center on June 2, 2016 during and after a speech by then-candidate Trump, just days before the California primary. As Breitbart News reported from San Jose at the time, anti-Trump protesters outside the venue chanted profane slogans and tore up an American flag. Later, as Trump supporters left the rally, the mob chased them, beat them, and attacked … [Read more...] about Ninth Circuit Lets Trump Supporters Hurt in San Jose Riot Sue Police

(Jabin Botsford/The Washington Post) by Seung Min Kim by Seung Min Kim Email the author May 6 at 7:47 PM Email the author President Trump has had ample opportunity to begin transforming his judicial nemesis: a federal appeals court out West that has stymied some of his most ambitious and controversial proposals. So far, he hasn’t seized it. The powerful U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit has long been a target for conservatives who argue it is a liberal power center out of step with the rest of the country.

The City of Chicago, represented at taxpayer expense by the powerhouse law firm WilmerHale, has won a victory against the Justice Department’s efforts to rein in certain federal subsidies in response to the City’s deliberate non-compliance with immigration enforcement. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, based in Chicago, affirmed a U.S. district court’s imposition of a nationwide injunction preventing Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his Department of Justice from withholding “Bryne Grants” for state and local law enforcement in jurisdictions that adopt so-called “sanctuary” policies.All three judges on the panel agreed with the district court that Chicago has a reasonable likelihood of prevailing on their argument that withholding funds violate constitutionally mandated separation of powers between Congress and the executive and impermissibly infringes on Chicago’s sovereignty under federalism. All three are Republican … [Read more...] about 7th Circuit Sides with Sanctuary Cities, Keeps Federal Money Flowing Nationwide
