The Fifth Circuit's Misfortunes Are Good Luck

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit—the federal appeals court in New Orleans that hears cases from Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas—has lost more cases than any other court in the country before the Supreme Court for two years in a row. Despite these losses, it still managed to move American law far to the right. The Supreme Court reversed eight of the 11 appeals from the Fifth Circuit this term, many of which were in some of the term's most ideologically charged cases. In nearly all of these cases, the Supreme Court pointed to how extreme the Fifth Circuit's decisions were, reaffirming that the Supreme Court's role as an ultimate check on the lower courts is an important one. Despite these setbacks, the Fifth Circuit has still managed to move American law meaningfully further to the right on guns, deportation proceedings and administrative law, and in some cases, the Supreme Court majority opinions have explicitly rebuked the Fifth Circuit for its extremist reasoning. This term, the Fifth Circuit was reversed eight times and affirmed three times, all in separate controversial areas of law. This has led some to suggest that the Fifth Circuit is too radical to win even this Supreme Court's approval, but not too radical to influence it deeply.
