How Appealing


Friday, November 30, 2007

U.S. Court of Appeals chief judge trivia contest: Later today, after Alex Kozinski becomes chief judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, each of the thirteen U.S. Courts of Appeals will have a chief judge who was appointed to his or her current court by a Republican President. President Ronald Reagan is responsible for nine of those appointments, while President George H.W. Bush appointed the people who currently serve as chief judges of the First, Second, Fourth, and Eighth Circuits.

The qualifications for becoming the chief judge of a U.S. Court of Appeals, and for determining how long someone can continue to serve as chief judge, are set forth in 28 U.S.C. sec. 45. As noted in this recent Ninth Circuit press release, "The chief judge is the judge in regular active service who is senior in commission of those judges who are (1) 64 years of age or under; (2) have served for one year or more as a circuit judge; and (3) have not served previously as chief judge." And, if another judge then meets the qualifications to assume the post of chief judge, the person serving as chief judge must step down from that post after having served as chief judge for seven years or on reaching the age of 70, whichever comes first.

Here are some chief judge trivia questions:

1. Assuming that Alex Kozinski serves a full seven-year term as chief judge of the Ninth Circuit, which Ninth Circuit judge would become the Ninth Circuit's chief judge seven years from today?

2. The U.S. Courts of Appeals came into existence in 1891 pursuant to the Evarts Act. When was the most recent earlier time, if ever, that the chief judges of the U.S. Courts of Appeals had all been appointed by Presidents from the same political party? For extra credit, identify each of the times this has happened between 1891 and today (assuming that this has ever happened before).

3. Assume that, after Alex Kozinski becomes the Ninth Circuit's chief judge later today, each chief judge of the U.S. Courts of Appeals remains in his or her post until statutorily required to vacate the chief judgeship. Which of the U.S. Courts of Appeals would then be the first to have a chief judge who was appointed to that court by President William J. Clinton?

4. Using the same assumption provided for question 3, which of the U.S. Courts of Appeals would be the first to have a chief judge who was appointed to that court by President George W. Bush?

Answers to these trivia questions can be sent to me via email. Each person who is the first to respond correctly to any question will be identified by name here at "How Appealing" unless the person asks not to be so identified, in which case some other more generalized description will be used.

Update: Since this post was published, I have received answers to each of these questions from various readers. Scroll up to access the posts in which I've published those answers.

"The 9th Circuit's new No. 1: Judge Alex Kozinski may have to temper some of his eccentricities to lead the such a complex court." Law Professor Carl Tobias has this op-ed today in The Los Angeles Times.

"How Appealing" takes this pre-breakfast (at least on the west coast) opportunity to wish soon-to-be Chief Judge Alex Kozinski a fulfilling and successful tenure in that post. As someone once said, "Don't hate the player."

"This case raises First Amendment questions about limiting the participation of non-voters at a New England town meeting." So begins an opinion that the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit issued today. According to the opinion, "The New England town meeting is a special form of government dating back to the colonial era and often considered an exemplar of pure democracy."

At stake in the decision is whether property owners who pay taxes on their land but who are registered to vote elsewhere are entitled to the same right to speak as voters who live in the town of Egremont, Massachusetts. The First Circuit answers "no." That court's opinion explains: "The [plaintiffs] are not registered to vote in Egremont and therefore are not town meeting legislators. The First Amendment does not give non-legislators the right to speak at meetings of deliberating legislative bodies, regardless of whether they own property or pay taxes."

Divided three-judge Ninth Circuit panel holds that the DNA Analysis Backlog Elimination Act of 2000 remains constitutional even after Congress expanded that law in 2004 to include as qualifying offenses all felonies: You can access today's ruling at this link.

Senior Circuit Judge Betty B. Fletcher dissented in an opinion that begins, "The majority holds, with an air of shrugging inevitability, that without a warrant, without probable cause, indeed without any suspicion whatsoever, the federal government may seize and repeatedly search the DNA of all federal felons on supervised release, regardless of their offense or their likelihood to re-offend. They sanction the inclusion of that DNA in a massive and permanent computer database, the sole purpose of which is to aid generalized criminal investigation. This offends not only the Fourth Amendment but our precedents. I respectfully dissent."

"The precise issue on appeal is whether the District Court had jurisdiction to certify a class consisting of claims arising from the infringement of unregistered copyrights and to approve a settlement with respect to those claims. We hold that it did not." So holds the majority on a divded three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit in a ruling issued today. The case in which the decision issued is captioned In re: Literary Works in Elec. Databases Copyright Litig.

Also today, two of the three judges on that panel joined in a separate opinion explaining why they chose not to recuse from deciding that case even though they very likely were members of the putative class whose claims were subject to the settlement in question. One of the two judges joined in the majority opinion dismissing the case for lack of federal subject-matter jurisdiction, while the other dissented from that outcome. Before deciding what to do, these two judges sought the views of the Committee on Codes of Conduct of the Judicial Conference of the United States, which apparently recommended that both judges recuse.

Why is this page loading more slowly than usual this morning? If you are having to wait longer than usual for the blog posts on this page to appear on your computer monitor this morning, the law.com headline box in the upper right-hand corner of this page is to blame. It seems that the law.com site is having some problems today, and those problems are why it is taking this page significantly longer than usual to appear.

The good news, such as it is, is that those problems do not prevent me from updating this site at my usual rate, so new posts will continue to appear quite regularly for those willing to endure the extra time it is taking for this page to refresh.
