Ninth Circuit Myth Exploded

The Sacbee (via Howard Bashman) has this article:
Despite a few attention-grabbing reversals - as when the Supreme Court threw out the circuit's ruling against "under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance, for example - about one in four 9th Circuit decisions reviewed by the high court met with its approval. Only four of the nation's 13 circuit courts did better. Six had 100 percent reversal rates.

The Ninth Circuit has been more ideologically balanced for years.
