The 9th circuit appeal court is at it again
I am not sure how you deal with rouge courts any more. We have moved so far away from any plausible interpretation of the Constitution into the realm of make it up as you go along… It is possible that our government has actually become so dysfunctional that it can no longer even put a definition to the word ‘Law’…
The previous president didnt respect it with Daca, why should the courts?
And this is the gift that keeps on giving from Obama and Reid.
I think the DOJ should start filing lawsuits against the ninth circuit and filing petitions to get the judges disbarred. The Constitution (14th Amendment), and subsequent federal law, gives the president the authority to make immigration policy decisions. It’s a well-established component of governance in the United States.
What I’m not clear on is if another appeals court can file an alternative ruling that is in conflict with the rulings put out by the ninth circuit? Is there even a conservative version of the ninth circuit? If there is, then every time the ninth circuit comes out with a ruling that contradicts what president Trump is trying to do, then another ruling should be issued that immediately contradicts the ninth circuit’s ruling.
It stays with the 9th circuit.
The first appeal is with a 3 judge court.
A full appeal is with the entire 9th circuit.
I expect the SCOTUS to step in and step on the 9th circuit.
I am far from knowledgeable about law but ‘I think’ that only a superior court can overturn a lower court ruling (in this case, the Supreme Court)… what I don’t understand and have yet to find out, is how a regional or district court can invoke a ruling that is legally binding on people and jurisdictions beyond their own remit…
9th circuit is a Federal court.
A state court would not have jurisdiction over the entire country.
This ruling will certainly piss off the SCOTUS as they said take a hike to the initial appeal and this will certainly land again on their desk.
When I used the word ‘superior’ I was speaking an a hierarchical sense… As I said, in this case it would have to be the Supreme Court, a ‘superior’ court to the 9th circuit…
Step one is a 3 panel judge, step 2 the full 9th circuit then SCOTUS.
One would have thought that the 9th circuit would take heed as the SCOTUS will be addressing it in the near future. But like good little activists they seem to want to stir the hornets nest.
