The most liberal circuit court in the United States has predictably ruled against the Trump administration’s executive order on immigration. 

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals’ ruling fully denied the Trump administration’s request to overturn the lower court’s lawless nationwide stay of the executive order’s enforcement.

Normally the ruling would mean that the case would be headed on to the Supreme Court, however, late Friday night the court announced that it could now reconsider the case before a larger panel of 11 9th Circuit judges.

The chief judge of the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, Sidney Thomas, announced Friday that one of the court’s judges had requested the vote. The judge was not named.

This means that the 25 judges who make up the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals will now vote on rehearing the case, a majority of the judges would have to vote to reconsider for the case to be heard before the larger body.

The fact that one of the judges on the original appeal requested the larger hearing could bode well for the Trump administration as it could mean that the judge believes enough of his colleagues could dissent and hand the White House a victory.

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
