..those 9th guys are way out of whack with the Supremes, and get 75% of their rulings reversed.

That seems unlikely. The Supreme Court grants certiorari on only a small percentage of the cases that come before it for review.

Good catch. Only a small percentage of any Circuit's cases even get appealed and only a fraction of those get heard by SCOTUS. Geezerwheezer probably intended the valid point that 9th Circuit has by far the highest rate of its reviewed cases overturned, don't have that figure top of my head, but it is stunning in comparison to any other Circuit.

Another good reason we should have broken the 9th, by far the largest jurisdiction, in half while we still had a Congressional majority.

Over 75% of the cases heard by SCOTUS from the 9th are reversed, and the 9th is, by far, the most reversed Court of Appeals in the USA. I think you may have misunderstood what I wrote.
