And guess who gets to appoint his replacement.

Judge Stephen Reinhardt, the liberal face of the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, died Thursday afternoon, a court spokesman said. He was 87.

The spokesman said Reinhardt died of a heart attack during a visit to a dermatologist.

Reinhardt, an appointee of former President Carter, was dubbed the "liberal lion" of the federal circuit courts.

His rulings in favor of criminal defendants and immigrants were often overturned by the more conservative U.S. Supreme Court.

His rulings included;
The ruling that the words "under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance were unconstitutional, a decision that was later overturned.
And the right to bear arms is a collective right, not an individual right. This ruling was overruled by the Supreme Court in D.C. v. Heller (2008).

I thought I read - during the debate over Trump's declaration to put a moratorium on illegals from several countries coming in - that this judge was the MOST liberal of the 3 (is it 3?) judges of the 9th circus?

Well, well, well. Heart attacks STILL kill, eh?
Instead of saying my usual "Rest In Peace", I will leave that Judgement call up to Almighty God, in His Infinite Wisdom.
This is the 9th Circus we are talking about, the most liberal court in the country and it feeds a lot of cases to the US Supreme Court. All of this means you can bet your last dollar the far loony left is going to go nuclear no matter who President Trump nominates. They will give him the same treatment they gave Robert Bork and Clarence Thomas, and the lamestream media will be along for the ride.
