Professor John Yoo Argues Against Proposed 9th Circuit Court of Appeals Split

In the November 23, 2005 issue of the San Francisco Chronicle, Professor John Yoo and co-author Eric George discuss the proposal Congress will likely soon consider to split the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit into two judicial boundaries: one for California and Hawaii; the second for other states, ranging from Alaska to Idaho and Montana to Arizona. "Congress must consider the ultimate question:  whether justice will be better administered under any new regime than by the presently configured Ninth Circuit. Proponents of a split have not successfully made that case," write Yoo and George. 11/23/2005
