    Last week, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) in a discovery dispute with the National Abortion Federation. CMP is the group of citizen journalists responsible for producing the undercover videos exposing Planned Parenthood’s practice of selling baby parts. This decision may end up being a costly one for CMP because it allows the National Abortion Federation to attempt to bury the group with discovery requests. Discovery is a pre-trial procedure in which parties can seek to obtain evidence for their case. The National Abortion Federation filed a federal lawsuit in California in...

    Diversity and tolerance is a one way street Via The DC Students in a California school district will not be allowed to wear American flag T-shirts on Cinco de Mayo, due to concerns that such displays of patriotism would inflame racial tensions by offending Mexican students on their holiday. The district’s policy concerned many free speech advocates, but was upheld by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. In response, Tea Party groups plan to protest outside Live Oak High School in Morgan Hill. And they will be wearing American flag T-shirts. “They silenced a symbol of patriotism and freedom in...

    San Francisco calls the Catholic Church's teachings hateful, defamatory and insensitive.The liberal 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals will decide whether a scathing anti-Catholic resolution from the San Francisco Board of Supervisors is unconstitutional. The resolution, passed unanimously in 2006, accused the Vatican of operating as a "foreign country" and called the Church's teachings "hateful," "defamatory," "insensitive," "ignorant" and "insulting to all San Franciscans." It was issued in response to the Church's requirement that adoptive children be brought up by families with a mom and dad. "They’re condemning the Catholic Church as 'hateful' and 'harmful,' and that is clearly a...

    PHOENIX -- The state will ask a justice of the nation's high court to let county election officials require voters to produce identification for next month's general election. Attorney General Terry Goddard said Tuesday legal papers will be given to Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, possibly by the end of the week, asking him to void an order by the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals barring the state from enforcing the voter ID provisions of Proposition 200 while a legal challenge to them works its way through federal court. Goddard's move came as the full appellate court refused Tuesday...

    Judges and prosecutors make mistakes, a Justice Department lawyer told the Supreme Court Tuesday, but sometimes those errors are so minor that they don't warrant reversing a conviction in a criminal case. A jury convicted Juan Resendiz-Ponce of attempting to enter the United States illegally from Mexico. But the 9th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals overturned Resendiz-Ponce's conviction because his indictment by a grand jury did not set out any specific acts showing how he tried to enter the United States. The omission was so serious that it required automatic reversal of the conviction, the appellate court said. Deputy Solicitor...

    An environmental group sued the Bush administration Tuesday over new rules to boost gas mileage requirements for sport utility vehicles and pickup trucks, saying the regulations do not go far enough. The Sierra Club, which filed the lawsuit, joined 10 states and other environmental groups in challenging the rules, which would raise gas mileage requirements by 1.8 miles per gallon for the 2008-2011 model years to a fleetwide average of 24 mpg. ~snip~ In the lawsuit, Sierra Club officials said the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration failed to follow the law requiring it to set fuel economy standards at the...

    Court rules English-only petitions in SoCal recall were unfair Associated Press SANTA ANA, Calif. - Petitions used for the 2003 recall of a Latino Santa Ana school trustee should have been printed in Spanish as well as English, an appellate court has ruled. The trustee, Nativio V. Lopez, had come under fire for seeking exemptions to the state's English-only instruction requirements and was partly blamed for the district's lack of new school construction. He was recalled by 71 percent of voters. The decision Wednesday by the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals could be used to force election officials throughout...

    SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - A California city's regulation requiring some distance between exotic dancers and their audience during a performance is constitutional, the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled on Wednesday. The San Francisco-based court conceded nude and scantily dressed dancers may be impaired from exercising their rights to freedom of speech by the rule requiring at least two feet (60 cm) between them and their audience, but held it did not entirely ban the performers from conveying an "erotic message." The court held the city of La Habra, near Los Angeles, California, crafted its regulation narrowly to deter...

    "It is perhaps ironic that the sitting governor could well cast a vote on his own recall that would not be tallied," writes the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. More ironic would be the retention of a governor unable to use a punch card properly. Nothing is too profound or too petty for the 9th Circuit Court to declare unconstitutional. From the Pledge of Allegiance to punch cards, the court sees grave threats to the Constitution. Indeed, whole countries may lose faith in democracy if punch cards remain in use. "We would be remiss if we did not observe...

    Henry Brady of UC Berkeley apparently did the study, using information from the 2000 election in Florida. The census data was superimposed on the voting data in order to determine race (I guess.) If people deliberately didn't vote for Bush or Gore, for example, that was counted as an error in the study, even though it probably wasn't. Also, the Florida there isn't a uniform standard for tallying punch cards, but in CA we do have clear definitions of what can and cannot be counted. AND, the ACLU may have misrepresented the information from this study, especially with regard to...

    Justice: We thought California's roller-coaster recall election couldn't get any crazier. Then the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals stepped in and postponed it.Nobody really seemed to think a federal court would step in and stop what was, after all, a state-run election. For unlike Florida in 2000, which was a federal election, California's recall was about its own governance.But, of course, when it comes to silliness, irrelevance and an ability to find a way to insert itself into any public debate, you can never count out the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals — which has become infamous in recent...

"The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals' liberal record ... and its reputation as the most overturned court in the country ... have almost grown to the status of an urban myth," said Steven Fitschen, president of the National Legal Foundation.

    Based on the events of last week, it may be time for the brilliant minds from the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals to revisit the pledge of allegiance issue. You remember those guys. They are the ones that found Constitutional problems with the phrase "under God," in our pledge of allegiance and threatened to pull the words out. Of course, there was an outrage from almost every segment of our society when they tried to remove the words. And rightly so. However, we may owe the Ninth Circuit Court an apology because it appears they could have been onto something....

That is, for all intents and purposes, what appellate judges do.Unlike a lawyer in a law firm who is looking out for...

    Magna Carta, American Style Introduction   Long before the birth of the United States, there ruled many years ago in England a King who became selfish beyond tolerance of the people. Laws he made and things he did became associated with a dictatorship. When confronted for his actions by the people, he simply replied, “The law is in my mouth.” On the morning of June 15, 1215, a group of barons and Churchmen gathered at Runnymede, staking their lives on their mission, their armed support kept well in the background. Upon his arrival, without conflict, King John signed the “Articles...
