Bill Reshaping 9th Circuit Passes Committee

Posted Oct 3, 2018

A bill to reorganize the 9th Circuit, HR6754, has been approved by the House Judiciary Committee two days after it was introduced. Per the bill, the new 9th Circuit would consist of four divisions, crossing state lines and dividing California into two different divisions. The Chief Justice for the 9th Circuit has penned a letter to the leadership of the House Judiciary Committee urging Congress to delay the bill until the matter has been investigated and the Circuit has a chance to comment.
