Judges v. Turkey (9th Cir. - Nov. 19-29, 2005)

Here's a quiz. Guess how many published opinions the 9th Circuit has issued during the last eleven days, from November 19 to today (November 29), inclusive?

Twenty? Fifteen? Thirty? Somewhere in between?

Well, here's a hint. The California Court of Appeal has rendered thirty-one published opinions during this period. Does that help?

Unfortunately, no. Because the answer is this: Two. Two published opinions in 11 days. Two.

31 to 2. Impressive, eh? Guess the 9th Circuit was really busy preparing that turkey dinner. And then digesting it.

Get cranking, federal dudes and dudettes. Thar's work to be done.
