Featured Series: Redistrict the U.S. Court of Appeals (Hruska)

Featured Series:  Redistrict the U.S. Court of Appeals (Hruska) November 22nd, 2015

The 1973 Hruska Commission opinion should be considered as  the “gold standard” for redistricting the U.S. Circuits.  It was far ranging, thorough and thoughtful.  Sen. Hruska noted not all were of the same mind on some issues (CP-Idaho will mention a couple of our disagreements).  But in 1973, when statesmanship was still exercised in Washington, […]

Featured Series:  Redistrict the U.S. Court of Appeals (Basic Math) November 17th, 2015

It is evident in 2015 that the hyper-partisan Far-Left is utterly indifferent to the noble principles of one-man-one vote and judgment by one’s peers—despite the Left’s incessant advertisements thereto.  Appealing to their better nature is wasted effort.

Appellate redistricting has been a long standing concern to Idaho and the Inland Empire states.  Calls to redistrict the U.S. Circuits date back a century.  In 1891, concurrent with Idaho’s admission into the union, calls to split the 9th U.S. Circuit were heard. Congress, with some regularity, returns to redistricting the Court of Appeals every […]

CP-Idaho bullet poll result on the federal court question

CP-Idaho bullet poll result on the federal court question November 13th, 2015

Okay, okay.  We are pulling our cpidao.org bullet poll on whether Idaho belongs in the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.  It is sort of long in the tooth.  We had hoped for more participation in order to generate a goodly sample. As it was with only 65 respondents (and statistically being very generous), our […]
