No Surprise: Ninth Circuit Undercuts Self-Government

UPDATE: Carrie Severino elaborates on our point in a column titled "The Ninth Circuit's Attack on Self-Government":

"This ruling effectively says that any attempt by the people of California to check their state courts’ liberal activism violates the United States Constitution. That proposition is not only legally laughable but is constitutionally backwards and may be the most serious attack on self government since the era of poll taxes and literacy tests. They have not only disenfranchised those who are poor or Black, they have effectively disenfranchised an entire state’s citizenry."

The most overturned judge on most overturned court in the land rules against the will of the people and  Proposition 8--as we predicted.

This case can't get to an adult court soon enough.
