B0MB ON DEMOCRATS The Supreme Court issued an epic smackdown
on the bias Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. Fox News reported that The Supreme Court on
Monday ruled that the decisive vote in a California pay dispute case before a lower court doesn’t
count — because the vote came from a judge who died before the ruling was issued. The case from the San Francisco-based 9th
Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals involved a dispute over pay filed by a Fresno County government
employee. Judge Stephen Reinhardt, who was seen as a
progressive icon on the bench, heard the dispute and participated in a preliminary vote. The appeals court then issued an opinion in
his name nine days after he passed away in March 2018. But the high court, vacating the decision
of a federal appeals court, said Monday that “federal judges are appointed for life,
not for eternity.” From Town Hall The Supreme Court on Monday ruled a decision
made by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals no longer stood because the decision was made
after a progressive judge on the court died. Judge Stephen Reinhardt’s vote was counted
in a case involving an equal pay lawsuit a California teacher filed. According to NBC News, “Reinhardt wrote
an opinion for the full appeals court, but it wasn’t announced until 11 days after
his death. A footnote at the beginning of the appeals
court decision said that Reinhardt “fully participated in this case and authored this
opinion” and noted that voting by the judges was completed before he died.” The high court’s decision was “per curiam”
meaning “for the Court.” These types of decisions are unsigned. According to the Supreme Court, “federal
judges are appointed for life, not for eternity. The upshot is that Judge Reinhardt’s vote
made a difference. Was that lawful?” The justices said it was unlawful. “Because Judge Reinhardt was no longer a
judge at the time when the en banc decision in the case was filed, the 9th Circuit erred
in counting him as a member of the majority,” the Court wrote. The high court follows the same standard,
as evidenced by Justice Antonin Scalia. “The votes of Justice Antonin Scalia issued
after his sudden death three years ago did not count, even though he had participated
in a number of argued cases earlier in the court’s term. No decision is official until it is formally
released by the court, and every member of the court must be on the bench at the time,”

departing The lead federal prosecutor in New York supervising
Michael Cohen’s case is leaving his job in April, the Justice Department said Friday. Robert Khuzami, the deputy U.S. attorney in
the Southern District of New York, will be replaced by Audrey Strauss, another law enforcement
veteran who has helped oversee the government’s case against President Donald Trump’s former
lawyer and fixer. Strauss, who rejoined SDNY in February 2018
after a long stint in private practice, will manage a team of DOJ attorneys who have the
Cohen portfolio. The U.S. attorney in the New York office,
Geoffrey Berman, has been recused from the Cohen probe for unknown reasons. “She is super bright, always well-prepared,
and I am confident she will leave no stone unturned in pursuing the matters arising out
of Michael Cohen’s cooperation,” said Nick Akerman, a former Watergate prosecutor
who has worked with Strauss in government and private practice. Cohen is scheduled to begin a three-year prison
sentence in May after pleading guilty to a series of tax fraud and lying charges. The SDNY office is also examining several
other aspects of the president’s political operation and business, including donations
to his inaugural committee.
