    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), a 2020 presidential contender, on Monday issued a judicial ethics plan that would close a loophole and allow misconduct investigations of federal judges to continue even if they are elevated to the Supreme Court or resign from the bench. “It’s time to ensure that judges do not hear cases where they have conflicts of interests, strengthen our nation’s ethics rules for judges, and ensure accountability for judges who violate these rules,” Warren wrote in the proposal. Closing the loophole would have ramifications for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who has faced sexual assault allegations, which he...
  • Another Trump Ninth Circuit Nominee Takes Step Toward Confirmation

    Danielle Hunsaker, a former clerk for Judge Diarmuid OScannlain of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, got a step closer Wednesday to filling the seat left open on the court when OScannlain took senior status in 2016. Hunsaker said in her prepared remarks before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday that being confirmed as OScannlains successor would be a highlight for me in my life, although she said the prospect of filling his shoes is daunting. Hunsaker, whose father worked in Oregons timber and construction industry, and whose mother homeschooled her, answered largely friendly questions about her...

    WASHINGTON (CN) President Donald Trump announced six new judicial nominees on Friday, including two to seats on the once reliably liberal Ninth Circuit and four to federal courts in California. One of the nominees to the Ninth Circuit will be familiar to senators, as Trump has now three times chosen Patrick Bumatay for a federal judgeship. Trump first chose Bumatay, a prosecutor in the Southern District of California, for a seat on the Ninth Circuit in 2018, but the Senate never took action on the nomination. Trump tapped him for a judgeship again earlier this year, this time for...

    A federal appeals court has temporarily lifted a nationwide injunction against President Donald Trumps effort to deny asylum to immigrants who enter the U.S. after passing through another country. Acting at the request of the Trump administration, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals issued an administrative stay Tuesday night that put on hold the injunction issued Monday by San Francisco-based U.S. District Court Judge Jon Tigar. The temporary hold implemented while the appeals court considers a longer stay essentially restores the legal situation that existed prior to this week, with Trumps policy blocked only in the Ninth Circuit, which includes...

    Planned Parenthoods decision to withdraw Monday from a federal grant program aimed at family planning services is the result of a ruling from an unlikely source: the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. The historically liberal court allowed a Trump administration rule blocking federal funding from organizations that refer patients for abortions to move forward, and Planned Parenthood chose to lose the money rather than stop the referrals. The case is one signal that President Donald Trumps judicial nominations may be shifting one of the nations most liberal courts further to the right, blunting what many consider his opponents most effective...

  • Idaho must provide sex reassignment surgery for trans inmate, Ninth circuit court rules

    NBC News ^ | 08/26/2019 | By Tim Fitzsimons
    Depriving a transgender inmate with severe gender dysphoria of sex reassignment surgery is a form of cruel and unusual punishment, a federal appeals court ruled Friday, affirming a lower court ruling. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ordered the state of Idaho to provide the surgery for trans inmate Adree Edmo. The ruling is the first time an appeals court has ordered a state to provide gender-affirming surgery to a prisoner, and the decision is at odds with a ruling issued earlier this year by the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Idaho's Republican governor, Brad Little, vowed to...
  • Trump Defeats Planned Parenthood in Ninth Circuit

    Last month the first physician to run Planned Parenthood in nearly a half-century was forced out because she actually wanted to focus on womens health. Her firing proved what many Americans already knew, which is that Planned Parenthood exists primarily to promote abortion rather than womens health. Taxpayers should not be required to fund this pro-abortion organization, and in a remarkable series of rulings even the Ninth Circuit agreed, for now. With seven new Trump judges on that court, the Ninth Circuit is no longer the liberal playground where Planned Parenthood has been able to snap its fingers and get...
  • BreakPoint: No Abortion Funds for Title X

    Back in 1970, the Nixon administration enacted the Title X Family Funding Program. As described on the HHS website, For more than 40 years, Title X family planning clinics have played a critical role in ensuring access to a broad range of family planning and related preventive health services for millions of low-income or uninsured individuals. For years, abortion providers were unable to access these funds, until President Clinton decided otherwise. Since then, abortion mills like Planned Parenthood have happily tapped into these funds to make sure that, utilizing some creative bookkeeping, women from low-income households have access to abortion...
  • Trump to Get Another 9th Cir. Appointment, Jay Bybee Seat Opening

    07/08/2019 1:00:31 AM PDT · by Jaysin · 11 replies
    President Donald Trump is on track to get another appointment to the largest federal appeals court. Judge Jay Bybee of the San Francisco-based U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit plans to take senior status at the end of the year, the court confirmed on Monday. Senior status is a type of semi-retirement which allows judges to keep working but relinquish their active seats. Trump has appointed six judges to the appeals court and is looking to fill other openings. Kirkland & Ellis partner Daniel Bress is awaiting consideration by the full Senate. Trump also will nominate a replacement...

    Liberals are going nuts. Theyre furious. All because President Donald Trump is doing exactly what he said hed do during his campaign and is reshaping the judiciary in the United States. The Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday advanced the nominations of 17 of President Donald Trumps judicial nominees, including a Ninth Circuit pick who faced questions about his ties to California. Daniel Bress received approval from the committee with a 12-10 vote, over the objections of Senators Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris, both California Democrats, who said Bress does not have close enough ties to California to occupy one of...

    Judge Carlos Bea, a Bush appointee, will take senior status on the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, though a date has not been set. The opening will give Mr. Trump his ninth slot to fill on the court six of his picks are already sitting. Some conservatives say that seat should be earmarked for Patrick Bumatay, an openly gay Filipino man whom Mr. Trump had eyed for the 9th Circuit before, but ended up nominating him for a district judgeship instead as part of a deal with Californias two Democratic senators. Patrick Bumatay is a former colleague and...

    A veteran jurist on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit has informed President Donald Trump that he plans to take senior status, potentially opening up another seat on the court for the president to fill. Ninth Circuit Judge Carlos Bea, 85, informed the president via letter that he intends to take senior status upon the nomination, confirmation and appointment of his successor, according to a statement from a court spokesperson. Although Bea intends to remain active on the court, the move would open up a spot on the courts 29-seat bench of active judges. The court now...

    The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit has jurisdiction over Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, and Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands. Idaho U.S. Sens. Mike Crapo and Jim Risch, both Republicans, say this is too much territory and the court is overloaded with cases. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals is the largest in the nation, covering 20 percent of its population, according to Crapo. It accounts for nearly a third of all pending federal appeals and takes an average of 13 months to decide a case, which is almost five months...

    President Trump has successfully appointed six judges to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. Prior to Trump taking office, the Ninth Circuit had 19 Democratic appointees, 6 Republican appointees, and four vacancies, and is the most overturned court of appeals in the country. In May, the U.S. Senate confirmed two Trump nominees, Kenneth Lee and Daniel Collins, the fifth and six appointed judges.

    For decades the U.S Ninth Circuit Court, which embodies Arizona, Nevada, California, Oregon, Washington, Alaska, Montana, Idaho, Guam, and Hawaii, has been populated with Left-wing judicial activists who rule not in accordance with existing law or the Constitution but in alliance with their liberal principles. In the process, the Ninth Circuit has become one of the most overturned of all federal judiciaries by the U.S. Supreme Court. But thanks to POTUS Donald Trump and his dedication to appointing constitutionalists to the federal judiciary, things are about to change for the Ninth Circuit, much to the chagrin of the Marxist Democrats...

    The Senate on Wednesday confirmed a controversial nominee to the San Francisco-based 9th Circuit Court of Appeals over the objections of both home-state senators. Senators voted 52-45 on Kenneth Lee's nomination to the influential appeals court, giving President Trump his 40th circuit judge since taking office. Lee's confirmation came despite neither Sen. Dianne Feinstein (Calif.), the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, nor Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), a 2020 presidential contender, returning a blue slip on his nomination. The blue-slip rule a precedent upheld by Senate tradition has historically allowed a home-state senator to stop a lower-court nominee...

    The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals on Tuesday ruled that the Trump administration can continue to enforce a policy requiring some asylum seekers to remain in Mexico while their cases are processed. The ruling from the San Francisco-based appeals court places a stay on a preliminary injunction on the asylum policy issued by a lower court.

    Did somebody spike the water in San Diego this week? A very unusual ruling was handed down from the Ninth Circuit yesterday. President Trump’s recent policy of having asylum seekers wait in Mexico while their cases are heard had been put on hold last month when a federal judge in San Francisco agreed with immigration advocacy groups who challenged it. But the government appealed the decision and yesterday the Ninth Circuit reversed the decision, saying the policy could remain in effect while the challenge plays out in the courts. Since when does the Ninth Circuit agree with Donald Trump?...
