Sending a Supreme Message

The Supreme Court has apparently decided to send a pretty blunt message to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.  They've unanimously reversed 5 recent cases that came up to the Supremes from the 9th.

Experts seem to think the Supremes are trying to nudge the lower court a little more towards the middle.  I'm thinking it's going to take a little more than a few judicial black eyes to get the 9th to start living in the real world.

This is the court that has been reversed more often than any other court of appeal.  In my lifetime, it's been a laughing matter in conservative circles when a conservative cause has come before the 9th.

Hopefully a judicial kick in the ass of legendary proportions is in the works for this wayward court.  Justice needs to be consistent, and it just hasn't been that way for a long time in the areas where the 9th Circuit holds sway.
