Ledezma-Cosino V. Sessions: The Ninth Circuit Maintains Archaic View That Alcoholism Is A Moral Character Flaw, Corey Timpson Apr 2019

Ledezma-Cosino V. Sessions: The Ninth Circuit Maintains Archaic View That Alcoholism Is A Moral Character Flaw, Corey Timpson

Golden Gate University Law Review

This Note focuses on one historically uncommon way in which courts decide to deport an undocumented immigrant seeking cancellation of removal. The United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit (“Ninth Circuit”) in Ledezma-Cosino v. Sessions found an undocumented immigrant seeking cancellation of removal ineligible because he was considered a “habitual drunkard.” Ultimately, his case was reheard en banc where the Ninth Circuit vacated the original three-judge panel opinion and upheld the Immigration Judge and the Board of Immigration Appeals’ decision finding Ledezma-Cosino ineligible for cancellation of removal because he was a habitual drunkard.

Playing Favorites? Implicit Bias On The Bench, Michele Benedetto Neitz Oct 2018

Playing Favorites? Implicit Bias On The Bench, Michele Benedetto Neitz

Publications

The concept of implicit bias has moved to the forefront of public discussion in the last decade, and many judges have already been trained on this issue. But it is worth considering how a specific type of implicit bias, in-group favoritism, may affect a judge’s everyday decisions.

Circuit Splits And Empiricism In The Supreme Court, Karen M. Gebbia Apr 2016

Circuit Splits And Empiricism In The Supreme Court, Karen M. Gebbia

Publications

This Article demonstrates, empirically rather than merely in theory, how a failure to apply accurate data to test carefully constructed hypotheses leads to unreliable conclusions concerning the relationship between the Supreme Court and the circuit courts of appeal. Specifically, commentators routinely misapply facially accurate raw data regarding the rate at which the Court reverses circuit court decisions to support unreliable conclusions regarding the comparative degree of accord between the Court and individual circuits. Commentators and the popular press then employ these unreliable conclusions to draw unsupported inferences regarding the reasons for supposed discord between the Court and the circuits, and ...

Judging And Administration For Far-Off Places: Trial, Appellate, And Committee Work In The South Pacific, Stephen L. Wasby

Golden Gate University Law Review

Little attention is paid to the far reaches of the federal judicial system, which extends beyond the boundaries of the continental United States and even beyond the outermost states of Alaska and Hawaii; Puerto Rico is part of the First Circuit,1 and the Virgin Islands are part of the Third Circuit.2 Most particularly, the Ninth Circuit encompasses not only Hawai’i but also the territories of Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands (NMI). Not only has the Ninth Circuit provided judges to hear cases in the district courts in Guam and the NMI as needed and reviewed cases ...
