I've been reading comments on other IG pages and many are sayiing the 9th circuit has a history of having many of their rulings overturned. Can anyone confirm?
These stats are from Politifact and their left wing sources so take these with a grain of salt, however. Also, these numbers are 4-5 years old so they be slightly different now. I do believe these to be correct or close enough from my memory of a couple of years ago. I would think that 79% is a very high percentage of rulings turned over by SCOTUS.
The 9th Circuit’s reversal rate is higher than average, but it’s not the absolute highest among the circuit courts. That distinction goes to the 6th Circuit, which serves Ohio, Michigan, Kentucky and Tennessee, with an 87 percent average between 2010-15. The 9th Circuit is in third place.
1. 6th Circuit - 87 percent;
2. 11th Circuit - 85 percent;
3. 9th Circuit - 79 percent;
4. 3rd Circuit - 78 percent;
5. 2nd Circuit and Federal Circuit - 68 percent;
6. 8th Circuit - 67 percent;
7. 5th Circuit - 66 percent;
8. 7th Circuit - 48 percent;
9. DC Circuit - 45 percent;
10. 1st Circuit and 4th Circuit - 43 percent;
11. 10th Circuit - 42 percent.https://www.politifact.com/factchecks/2017/feb/10/sean-hannity/no-9th-circuit-isnt-most-overturned-court-country-/
