The steroid decision has at least a 50-50 chance of being overturned. A CNN article in 2002 even said:
- "The 9th Circuit is the most overturned appeals court in the country and is considered by legal scholars to be the most liberal. States under its jurisdiction are Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon and Washington."
The article is mostly about the pledge of allegiance case, the 'overturned' statement about 3/4 into it. The claim has been disputed, but the court is still seen as adventurous. The 'Schlamiels' tag isn't one I dreamed up myself, an inventive radio talk show host thought it up.
