Come Back, Ninth Circuit (9th Cir. - Feb. 2015)

Paul Simon once wrote (and sang):  "Where have you gone, Joe DiMaggio?"  The same might be said for the Ninth Circuit in February 2015.

In the six business days of this month, the Ninth Circuit has written a sum total of one -- count it, one -- published opinion.  Whereas the mass of unpublished opinions continues apace:  50+ and counting.

At this rate, February could be the slowest month in the history of the Ninth Circuit.  Plus don't forget it's only 28 days, and we've got President's Day coming up.

P.S. - Apparently the line about Joe DiMaggio is subject to competing interpretations.  To be clear:  I mean "Where are you?" not "Why do you now stink?"
