San Jose Mercury News | May.12.2017

Orrick Supreme Court & Appellate Senior Associate Brian Goldman co-authored an opinion piece with Harvard Law School lecturer Ian Samuel on the importance of preserving the Ninth Circuit in light of President Trump’s threats to break up the court. In the piece, the authors – both of whom previously served as clerks on the Ninth Circuit and the Supreme Court – disprove claims that the Ninth Circuit is one of the most frequently overturned by the Supreme Court, and describe why breaking up the court would be a bad idea.
